today was a long, grueling day at work trying to dig out after 2 days of training last week and then out with a flu bug on monday. i arrived home at 6:50 and found this note from the mailman in my mailbox, "parcel at front door". my heart soared as i knew it was this delightful original painting i bought from magaly ohika at itsy bitsy spill!!! magaly and i found each other's blogs just recently and i was immediately captivated by her art work. her characters are quirky and adorable and enchanting in all their colorful imperfection. i knew i had to have a piece and waited patiently for one to speak straight to my heart. this piece titled "no more sorrow" did just that. it is gouache, gesso and charcoal on kraft paper and a 10 x 10 wood block. she has handwritten this on the back "life has a way in making things right but it is up to you to trust that it will and have the strength and the power of faith guide you!" love, love, love it! it's sitting on a shelf in my art room to keep me motivated and smiling. you can check out the itsy bitsy spill etsy shop here and her blog here.
