  13. Hi Tammie, everything can be inspiring for our creativity, right? perhaps, from a sad song, you can draw tears ... but tears for joy :) thanks for stopping by! :))))

  15. Your work always has a story to tell...or rather, it always tells a story to me. I love what you do. I used water as an element in what I did this week as well. Have a lovely week Tammie! Norma, x

  29. She is incredibly beautiful Tammie.. and full of emotion and soul! Her eyes are powerfully expressive and stunning and filled with thoughts and memories! She seems almost Angelic..in disguise..helping to heal others or take their sadness and heal them. How cool you sketched it on a plane..! I love her hat and the tears falling down like tiny poems!Beautiful!
    yay..gorgeous treasures ..enjoy!
