Nine colors of Peace

Can you tell I'm trying to use up all the "almost" empty bottles of paint?
Nine colors is a record I think!

Amazing Peace!

WOW! I am amazed on how my Peace making skills have developed over this year! For this one, I blended 7 colors together and was surprised by the results. This is so much FUN..... How can I possibly stop at the end of the year?

More Copper Peace

One more Peace with SW colors, sometimes this happens by accident, sometimes I plan to work with same colors for a few days. I think these four look good together.

SW Peace

Do you like the colors of the SW? Do you like copper and turquoise jewelry?
Try this on for size.

Request for Peace

My friend Ann (who loves "picking").... found a large framed picture at a garage sale with summer for $1.00.... she liked it, not for the picture (an animal print).... but for the frame, and the mat was nice too. So she asked me to create a large Peace which could be used with the mat and frame. Sure I said!
This is how the project turned out- Yellow, Gold, Cream, & Brown (which didn't show up very well in these photos.

I say it looks very sweet in my Dining Room!  But this will go to Ann as her Christmas gift. 
I framed it last night and took it over to Westminster to hang in the show for a few weeks.
In January, after Ann takes down her Christmas decorations, I hope she will find a special wall  to hang this special request Peace!

Heartwarming Peace for my Husband!

The colder weather has had me working in blues, but here trying to warm up with some added red hearts. Just like the love that was added to my life 20 years ago when Greg and I got engaged on this special date! A year prior, on 12-7-90, we had our first introduction and went to lunch together.

PEACE HUG for my "IT" guys

A special thank-you PEACE HUG for my two IT guys at work. Not only did they work nicely with me during my latest visit to the central office, but they also gave me a stack of used CD's. There must be 3 months worth here!

I know someone special who is having a birthday today!
I'm sending this PEACE HUG out to my friend Ann.
I created this darkish- "hot and spicy" Peace with her in mind!

PEACE HUG for Kelley

Today I am "practicing" for 2012.... I am sending my first PEACE HUG.
This special Peace Art goes to my friend Kelley, who needs to be reminded to reach for the light. This bright orange Peace, I hope, will put a smile on her face, cause she has a great smile!

 This small magnet Peace Art will be delivered in a CD jewel box.

Now I will either choose to email the link to this blog post to Kelley, OR I can use the buttons at the bottom of the post to send to Facebook, or email to her directly. I guess I'll test these out today.
Thinking of YOU Kelley, have a great Thanksgiving!

Choosing Peace

 More Peace Art using colors of green for trees, blue sky, white snow, purple mountains magisty, and a girl in a yellow coat.

Boy, I'm glad I don't have to make this decision and choose.... what is your favorite Peace?
I am kind of intrigued by this one.

Special Request Peace

I had a request to create some Peace Art for a Christmas gift for someone special using colors of green, yellow, white, blue.... I added the purple. More about the symbolism of these colors once the special Peace is chosen. I couldn't just stop at one Peace today.... I'm going to continue to experiment with these colors tomorrow.
