* My Lady of Abundant Blessings

Hello all my lovelies.  I miss you, however, I have been keeping tabs on what you've been up to in blog land.  Thanks for all your wonderful comments on the last post.  It could leave a girl weak at the knees.  :o)

My Lady of Abundant Blessing is complete.  I will be able to hang her in my home as soon as the sides of the canvas are dry.  We have had a discussion about having prayers on the heart she is holding.  I asked if I could paint a winged heart, hang it above her and put my prayers there.  That way, the winged heart can fly around hunting and gathering while My Lady is able to stay with me.  She agreed.

This painting, for whatever reason, has great presence and a great sense of peace.  As I mentioned, my critic was not present during this painting and it was such a glorious experience.  Yes, Donna, I have changed the locks!

Thanks so much for popping in.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I'm having a play day with a friend today, and back to painting with Nina tomorrow.

I have to say the quote today made me laugh out loud and I couldn't help but share it with you.
"A lady is smarter than a gentleman, maybe, she can sew a fine seam, she can have a baby, she can use her intuition instead of her brain, but she can't fold a paper in a crowded train."   ~ Phyllis McGinley


  1. Love your finished painting Donna, but I loved her all along! Enjoy having her in your house, may she bring you the abundant blessings. Writing the requests on a separate heart is a good idea. Have a wonderful day, and take care! Hugs, Valerie

  2. what an evolution, she is gorgeous donna

  3. what an evolution, she is gorgeous donna,. i can only imagine that you birthed yourself as you gave birth to her

  4. What is truth? A difficult question but I have solved it for myself by saying that it is what the "voice within" tells you. Mahatma Gandhi Your painting is pure truth and every time you look at it your heart will sing....hugs..Donna

  5. Dear Donna,
    Using one of your favourite words,
    she is "Exquisite"!
    Using one of my favourite words, she is absolutely Splendiferous!
    Good for you for allowing her to come through you.
    Love, Di

  6. your painting is so very beautiful, Donna, enjoy it. Remember the feeling as you painted the canvas and how easily you brought this lady of abundance out. Display this beauty proudly on your walls!
    I showed my husband the first background painting you showed us and then the finished painting. He was also very impressed and he has had some art classes!

  7. Absolutely stunning.

    If you scroll down and view the different stages of your "lady" it is amazing to see the final result. She is so beautiful and I still believe she is your best yet.

    It will be fun to see what your mentor, Nina, has to say and where you head next.



  8. Donna I am so glad you haven't gone away completely you cheer me up no end with your wonderful humour am so glad I found you ! Your lady is stunning, beautiful, serene and peaceful am so glad I could be along for the journey and experience her coming to life I will pass by often to gaze upon her.


  9. Hi donna glad you enjoy my posts feel the same about yours ! CAS clean and simple ( only just found that one out myself ) OTT over the top . Don;t post any jewellery as there are unscrupulous people out there that copy it and we have exclusivity for Thessaloniki. People are always copying are designs and window displays have caught them loads of times with cameras in hand , cheeky buggers !


  10. Beautiful painting! Love the combination of the rust & turquoise ~ two of my favorite colors. Also, you live in a place I have longed to go and perhaps someday I shall go and perhaps never return. Thanks too for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely comments. I'd love to reply it's very difficult when the email is not in the profile. :( Go Well! SZQ

  11. Well written post, in this post you are moving very important issues.
