Illustration Friday: Savour


Good thoughts in,
Bad thoughts out.
Deep breath in,
exhale slowly.

Savour the peace within.

  1. This is just beautiful. You do some wonderful things with patterned paper! It makes me want to try. Is the paper thick enough to allow paint? Must be or you wouldn't be doing it. I love the words of wisdom.

  8. love the words and the image. i just went on an open studio tour and saw some lovely wooden carved buddha's as this lovely lady's studio. I like the way they remind me of peace and that peace is a choice.

  29. Hey, I'm doing "Raining Cats and Dogs" too, but I think I'm changing it to "Reigning Cat and Dogs".

    Ugh, we thought we had cured Kato of stealing food but I guess not. This wasn't his first pie, but it will be his last, hope he enjoyed it!
