PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Hi everyone! Hope you had a nice relaxing weekend :)

I couldn't think of anything to post for this weeks photo. I have had a lot of other stuff on my mind lately. In the end I decided to take some pics of the art around my house to show you. You can probably see from the pics that my favourite colour combo is Aqua, dark brown and orange, he! he!

These are some Chinese symbols I painted for myself years ago. The top one reads harmony, the second love and the third prosperity


Mum painted the matching clock for me and the painting of the flowers


Mum also painted me this butterfly painting for my birthday a couple of years ago


Alex's Dad gave us these photos he took. He is a very talented photographer


Another one from Mum that sits in my art room to keep me motivated. The tags on the wall are from my lovely little brother Aaron (he is becoming quite the artist himself), and the rag doll is one of my very firsts
I'm sure you can tell that I thoroughly enjoy having such a talented artist for a Mum :)

WOW....I'd forgotten you had that many pieces from me....I'm glad you like them and, now that you're back into painting, you can add more pieces of your own too. I love how you have everything displayed! Chat to you soon.

Love,
Mum xo

I love your Chinese calligraphy which was well written and meaningful. I wonder whether you acquire the skill from.

You are indeed lucky to have such a talented mother! In addition to being a sweet, kind, and wise woman. And it appears that she passed all thise qualities down to you.

Mum - Thanks, I love my new banner too. I might eventually add some pieces of my own but not untill we move.

James - Thanks for your lovely comment. It was pretty easy to do, I just traced the words I wanted onto the canvases and then just blocked them in with acrylic paint.

Sashi - I do love it that Mum and I both love art and painting. It comes in very handy when I need tips and advice.

Jennifer - Thanks, I really like my new banner too :)

Genie - Thanks, I love, love, love Aqua and orange together :)

Linda - Thankyou for your lovely words. I am lucky to have my mum :)

awwww..isn't it great to have family members that are also artsy... I think perhaps each of you can better appreciate any creative endeavours when you know what goes into the doing of them....

Leah said...

How fun to see the art around your home!!

Sandy said...

Loved seeing the photos and the artwork. Your mom is incredibly talented, I'm in awe...and your choice of colors, gosh they look good together...love the zen symbols too. and Aaron, well another artist in the family doesn't surprise me, lucky you and your family...

My dad was a painter but I don't have much here, which I wish I did, as he died in 2001...

my mom, I doubt she could draw a box, ha.
