Rest and Relaxation ** September 1st**
I`m not much of an artist as you can see, especially by the weird hands and odd angled stick looking cups in this picture. But this is another card I did about eight years ago. Happy with everything but those hands and cups and too busy or lazy to fix them at this point in time. It works well with this post though, so I stuck it up anyway. This is my version of the Angel of Temperance, or rather, the Temperance card. I did end up making 28 of them into actual cards.It symbolizes perfect balance. Balance that feeds the spirit and revitalizes. The depicted angel has mastery in mixing and blending to create this. I used prisma colour pencils on paper, much more brilliant than showing here. This is an old picture of an actual card I`d made. Managed to get about 46 of 78 pictures done, the best, all of three, posted previously. The rest, I`m afraid are drawn more like this one. But still, they all carry a message of some sort. Life became busier so this project was put aside and perhaps also due to seeing other artistic styles I liked so, so much better but just couldn`t do LOL.
The Angel of Temperance is about finding that good balance. I`m going to use some of that, this long weekend. It`s Labour Day long weekend here in Canada. Though I don`t intend to do much in that department...I`ll spend a little less time on the computer, so I may not post for a day or two and more on a good book, visiting with my friend who is feeling much better and coming to visit... and resting between some chore bits and pieces....oh and having a look at those bricks of my brother`s. Hubby and me are planning on going to the movies too. Not sure which one to see yet.
I`ve been an early bird and a night owl all at once most of this week and though both times of day are nice, it`s caught up with me and I`m tuckered! But yaaaaahoooooo....it`s Friday! Happy weekend everyone.
