Made With  PaperTime to say “Thank you!”

There are some very special artists that supported and encouraged me right from the beginning and others that became followers only weeks ago but always like and comment my artworks. As I don’t find the time to answer every single comment I would like to say “Thank you sooo much!” to all the persons that are “always there”. 

I planned to do that for such a long time and always put it aside because there should be some special drawing/painting to come with it. As I am running out of time and didn’t want to wait anymore I started by just writing down some names into a zen doodle, … Added some decoration and then I thought it might be nice to show some typical signs to the names. Logos or avatars, part of their artworks and stuff. No I have to realize 4 facts:
1. I didn’t have place and time to add all of you! Sorry to those who joined my followers in the last weeks. Please don’t take it personally that you are not in! Ooooh and there might be missing some other that I forgot. Pleeeeease don’t hate me.
Nleepez, Joseetje, sh…. I forgot you…. And ….. 😳
2. I started with some special persons like Nadia and Jay ….before I decided to draw something representative for every artist … I am afraid that I did not have the time to erase your names and to put you in again with something in your style (which is not so easy anyway)! You know I just love you even more!!!😘
3. I am not able to draw portraits. Sorry Rosi! Your work is so unique I had no chance to copy it by far.
Sorry Zengming, hope you are able to recognize Qiqi. Couldn’t do it any better in this size? 
4. Drawing in miniature is soooo very difficult! Please be merciful!

Love you all!!!!!

PS: Have to find out, how to post it in high resolution ‘cause I think some details got lost. :-(

Oh, and that one killed the tip of my bamboo stylus and a Pencil’s tip as well! They died for good, didn’t they? 😉

Oh, this is wonderful! Thank you krickeleien for your kind and thoughtful acknowledgement. I love my train track and glasses! I love all the little touches. Can I just say—I don’t know how I got this lucky. The world can be harsh and disappointing—all of you have given me a kind and comforting place to visit and share. Grateful. I am.

My contribution to “fierce women” is this: my mom looking inside a tiny mirror for some glimmer of self. She is 85. Her own mother painted beautiful water colors when she was fifteen but abandoned the practice when her father (my great-grandfather) told her that painting was a frivolous activity. I have heard this story over and over from women of my grandmother’s and mother’s generation. Here’s to the fierce women of my past whose identities were not allowed to flourish—to the tiny mirrors they carried in their purses. islandharmony
