Shy Girls ...

In my postbox today, these beautiful ladies! I love the feel of the wooden block in my hand. I love the  expressions on their gentle faces. I think they will be good company - I have a feeling that they have stories to tell. I hear that they are good listeners too ... they can keep secrets ... (although I do imagine that they might perhaps whisper amongst themselves and discuss the latest follies and foibles of Anairam).





































From the lovely artist Aris at Peekadoo. I can't wait for her to open a shop!

The best kind of companions for an artist. Always there, observing but never criticizing, at least not out loud. Love the colors and the kind faces.

i have one of her pieces and treasure it! i absolutely love her works on the wood blocks and admire how she experiments on different surfaces. she could paint on the bottom of a shoe and turn it into art. let's start the collective call. HEY ARIS! time to open a shop!

I love these! I have seen on eof Aris's paintings on a wooden block before-such a great idea to use these in this way! Lucky you!
By the way-the rose seems to be dying-I noticed tonight-it was fine and now it is not-it is indoors so it is not the cold. I think I have overwatered it maybe! It is sad and droopy.
