A few months ago we had renovations done at our house, and I noticed the builders leaving these little off-cuts lying around… I felt a bit like a crazy person gathering up their off-cuts, but I had other ideas for them. Got myself some Resene test pots and proceeded to paint…
Acrylic paint on wood.
Valentine’s Day Creative Exchange Project
I was invited to a Facebook event called “Valentine’s Day Creative Exchange”. The girl organising it drew out the names of those ‘attending’ at random, and assigned each of us someone to create something for for Valentine’s Day. Kind of like Secret Santa. Then the created thing is bundled up, with a sweet note, and sent in time for Feb 14th. I thought, Valentine’s Day is a day where we’re encouraged to show love to those that we love. And admittedly, I neither know, nor love, this girl whose name I was given, but just because someone is a stranger doesn’t mean we can seek to show them love and encouragement. Hence the painting, “You were made to shine”.
