* "Keeper of the Faith" .. Complete

For those of you dropping over from The Butterfly Effect, this piece is what I have chosen for this weeks theme "Music and Art".   May I introduce "Keeper of the Faith".  She brought with her a message which you can read just above the painting.  Interestingly enough she also came with music imprinted upon her heart.  Music which she says will lighten our hearts if we are sad and bring us happiness.  The music which she asked to be written is "You Are My Sunshine", which was also interesting.  As I was humming the tune and trying to write the music, I missed a note.  Perhaps she is also saying it's OK if things aren't quite perfect.  Hope you enjoy this piece.  She was truly a gift to paint.  Thanks for stopping by. 

Finished her yesterday.  Couldn't put my brush down for long.  She brought a lovely message with her, and told me what she wanted in the picture as far as symbols go.  A candle represents inner light, Music for happiness, oak leaves and acorns for strength, spirals for healing, birds for hearing and giving messages, key for unlocking the secrets of the Universe.  Moon and stars represent the many gifts available to me.

It was quite a lot to work to get all these bits and pieces into the painting, however I like 'busy' paintings anyway.  Keeper of the Faith brought her own special message to me.  For those of you who missed it before .. it went like this.

I bring light.  You will never be lost.  I have strength.  Even in your weakest moments, you will have this strength to draw from.  Music is with me to fill you with happiness and warm your heart.  Even when you think you cannot hear, and are disconnected from the Universe, I carry the connection for you.  If you become quiet and listen, you will always be able to hear.  I carry the key to the Kingdom.  If you would like the moon and stars, all you have to do is ask.


Thank you all for dropping by my blog.  It is with great pleasure I read your comments which you take time to leave.  These last few paintings which have come through me, are a different breed.  I am surprised.  I am excited.  You have no idea how much I appreciate your support.  xxoo

  3. I could have done with your keeper of the faith the last few days what with my connection problem and all ! You are a cheeky madam Miss Donna and just love hearing from you as well as seeing your stunning art you do cheer me up no end. Yes and when thwarted happens it really is frustrating ! Your finished piece is exquisite and once again you takes us all along on your journey of discovery it makes it all the more special and some how I feel a part of the process.

  4. You could look at this picture for hours and always see something more in it as you gaze into its breathtaking beauty. It has so many wonderful elements in it. Just fantastic. I love love love it. The candle to light your way when things get dark.....the music notes to sooth your soul and calm your fears....the key to unlock your heart when you don't think you can love again....the moon and the stars to look to the Universe for guidance and the bird to allow us to fly here and there enjoying life.

Well, most of the cards I received had to travel quite a distance ;-) I enjoyed browsing your blog, your art, your photos and your stories! Thanks again for playing the postcardswap.
