10 of 10 : The art for Shay

Aaah... the challenges in life, such as what to create for a woman that is creative herself. And not only that ... shows in her blogs the many facets of her existence. 


Well here it is... and yes, as usual I leave the good stuff out, so the owner of the book will not see the whole picture. But I will reveal that I made it in acrylics and ink on paper... One could take pleasure in mysteries...

And that will be all..... for now...

This 10 by 10 Project is really wonderful!
I look forward to seeing this when we can see it all---after she see's it of course...! What a fun Challange!

Ily is right, I love it!!!!! It's wonderful, and you can't fool me, that's a Shay/Joan hangin'around the cosmos if I ever saw one! I can't wait to see it, and it might just end up on my wall. Thank you, Monique! You so rock!

PS--I laughed at your comment on my post for the moms. :-)

Naomi: oh yes it is, and I promise you that once I have my book back I will publish all the contributions in my nook on my blog

Shay: Don't you get all excited about the stars... those I cut out from this picture to keep you curious... and that you are...lol

LL Cool Joe said...

I bet it looks great without them too!

Holland said...

LLCJ: Yes, it does.... I swear... next time I will just paint a bunch of stars...LOL

Lynn said...

That is so great!

A nice painting of a talanted girl, by a talanted girl.

This is my lucky day :-)

Mama Zen said...

Wow!

Holland said...

Lynn: I hope you talk about the art here...lol

Mac: Thank you so much... but you understand the challenge here.

Mama Z: Thanks! (I presume you mean it in a good way and not like "Wow, how thick can you get to put this on your blog"..lol)

Peeking behind the stars, I see a beautiful portrait of an amazing woman. Beautifully done, Holland. And I'm glad Shay can't see the whole picture until she sees it firsthand - lucky lady!

Holland said...

Talon: There are only a couple more people in front of her, adding their work to it as well, before she gets her book back. I think she will be pleased with all inside.

Ricardo said...

Wonderful stuff as always. You are very creative and an amazing artist.

Holland said...

Thank you so much!!!

Wow!! That's really gorgeous! I can't wait to see this one in person. You are so super talented. I hope you like what I did in your book (it's going out to Carmen tomorrow). I remembered you saying you prefer my black and white work! I've posted a picture of it on my blog but, as always, I put the entire thing on view.
