Getting to the heART of it Blog Festival

This is a double page watercolor drawing in my Moleskine sketchbook in participation in the heART blog festival that Mother Henna is hosting on her blog on Valentine Day. You can click on the Exploring My heART badge on my sidebar to find out the details if you'd like to join in.



Like anyone else who has live long enough, my heart bears the scars of being cracked, broken, and shattered. It has also sung, danced, jumped for joy, swung on stars, and been so filled with love that I thought it would burst. I have been blessed to have loved and been loved by many wonderful people in my life. Whatever I attempt to create comes from the pain, the loss, the joy, and the love of life. I share it in the hope that what comes from my heart will touch yours, if only for a moment, and we will both be blessed.

I LOVE the blue popping out of the page on that top heart image.

The whole thing is lovely, and I like the complex shape of it all. The beauty of life and experience.

Hi Sharon,

Thank you for stopping by for a visit tonight. I tried to change my template and lost everything on my sidebar, so I've had to wait on others that I had been following to visit so I could add them back to my blogroll. I'm adding you back tonight.

Your post is a beautiful writing and so true for so many of us.

I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.

Sweet piece! My heart, like yours, is doing all those things, day by, sometimes minute by minute!
