love 15 ways...


It's amazing (and kind of silly) to try and pack all that love is into one word...I mean whose idea was that?  Love is big, small, empowering, humbling, comforting , frightening, random and non-random...it's SO much bigger than one word.  This pile of tissue prints shows love in 15 different languages.  It's funny some are small short words, some soft sounding and some sound hard sounding but they all mean the same thing.  I'm working these into a block painting which I'll share tomorrow if all goes well....
brrrr.....(not above zero today!)

'All those words for love', it is a poetic pile you have there, and they are printed on soft tissue paper, even that is poetic.
And a really nice photo you made, good lightning. I look forward seeing what will become of them..

As the Beatles said so rightly, "All we need is love, love." Looking forward to seeing your new piece.

thank you to everyone who commented but a special thank you to leililaloo who mentioned the photograph...one of my goals for 2009 was to improve my photos (and i was really happy with this one...thanks for noticing!).

Oh my below zero!!!

Thanks for the tissue paper how to, will give it a go... another one I have used is where you photocopy something and then use turps and rub it with a soft cloth onto a sheet of tissue paper and if your lucky it will transfer. I have used it a few times and it looks quite effective. I am very keen to give your method a go as mine was a bit hit and miss.

I hope you stay warm...

I can't wait to see it....I just love anything to do with text on paper and wax.......
(by the way, your past dish sounds way more scrumptious than mine....just give me 14 hours to drive there for when it's ready.....)
