"Love is the vital essence that pervades and permeates, from the center to the circumference, the graduating circles of all thought and action. Love is the talisman of human weal and woe--the open sesame to every soul." Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Today's Illustration Friday theme isTalisman. I've always loved the quote above by Elisabeth Cady Stanton. I figured this altered doll / ATC from a few years back would fit the Talisman bill. So, tT Daa! Here she is.
You can find a talisman of your own, along with the work of dozens of incredible artisans at the Art, Paperie and Pleasantries craft fair, May 2 & 3rd, at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. Join us!
There are strings in the human heart that had better not be vibrated. - Charles Dickens
The illustration Friday theme today is STRINGS.
The theme made me think of the Charles Dickens quote, above, and that made me think of this abstract I created for an Altered Art Obsession inchies swap that participated in a few years ago. (After creating the abstract, it was cut into inchies.)
Happy Friday everyone! Here is to hoping you experience joy this weekend, with no strings attached!
(Speaking of no strings attached, we are working on announcing our Mano Amico Scholarship program and a few other economy-sensitive programs to assist artists who want to join us at www.ZNEcon.com 2009. Stay tuned!)
