fragile love

Recently I joined a yahoo group called ArtSisters, and this is my first offering, though in different versions, to 6 ladies. The spring colors, stitches on the musical 'nest' and beeswax coating give a softness to the message. Spring is my favorite season...there's so much hope prevailing, and new life arising and sweet songs filling the air. I've been in such a long winter season in my life, and 6 months of snow in Montana seems to emphasize it too much! 

In the celebrations at hand the pagan themes of the Easter season have never been my focus (though an egg hunt is always enjoyed!)...but so much of this season brings for me a clearer vision of new life in Christ, and reminds me of the supernatural rebirth I experienced in Him when I was 21 yrs. young! Life is so fragile...and as I write those words, the Elton John song rings back through my mind..."Love is the open-in door, Love is what we came here for....no one could offer you more...do you know what I mean, have your eyes really seen?"

Abigail what would I do without your sweet comments. You make me feel better.

I wrote today on my blog about how good friday is the day for me and what it means and your comment from limbo just tied into it so well.

I love your bird and all of your art. xoxo

Love Renee xoxo

Hello dear friend.

Abigail thank you for your comment on my post. I just want to make sure you know that none of the art is mine. Only the writing.

How are the family? Is everyone well?

Blessings to you sweet Abigail.

Love Renee xoxo

This is just beautiful. May I ask what kind of beeswax you used...natural or white (clear) or a mix?? I want to try adding some to my artwork. Thank you. Laurie

Thank you for your encouragement for trying wax. I just got some...I cant wait to try it out. I got a natural bristle brush (hake, with no metal parts) I'll let you know when I have used it. Laurie
