Self Portrait Challenge - Black & White (2)

SPC 'Give and Take'. This represents to me the relationship I am building with my friends and fellow artists. I have given and taken from some special girlfriends these past few months. We are together in this life to learn from each other, to share ideas, friendships and inspiration. It is how we were designed to live. We give to eachother, we take from eachother, we are in community together. It is a beautiful thing.

    Thank you Shona for your inspiration and your willingness to give always! I am beginning to get my art work out there again... in baby steps... and I have you to thank for that. I hope to soon give back.
    The photo is beautiful!

  6. This is beautiful...inside and out! I've found myself dwelling on the wisdom of your words all day...and I can say with confidence that God is good. What a blessing in His design...'Give and Take' simple, but profound. I've loved all of your SPC photos, but this is my favorite so far. It really pulls you in...fantastic work 'friend', absolutely beautiful!

  9. Hi again! Thanks for the comment- we also homeschool! We are always creating something and my kids often help me decide certain things in my art or even get right in there and add a little something. Nice to hear from you.
