One World One Heart 2011

Hi I am Joyce, welcome to my Art Blog
I am not much of a talker, I am a dreamer
I believe in fairies and meadows full of songs
and flowers and rays of sunlight.
I was born in the Netherlands and moved to New Zealand about 16 years ago. This is where I had my kiddos, a boy and a girl.

I am a Mum to 2 school aged kids, life partner to a great guy who lets me play with my art supplies and a visual artist, I love mixed media in many forms. I enjoy sketching, painting and drawing faces and human forms, but I'd love to start tackling more animal
For this year's One World One Heart (my first one)
I started making this painting
...but I haven't finished yet...
I call it "Treasure Earth"

I will be adding more layers to it before the OWOH finishes on February 17th. That's when the winner will be drawn !

So, if you like where I am going with this and would like a chance to win this painting,
leave a comment to this post

with a way for me to contact me if you turn out to be the lucky winner !
(I will post the process and the final shot of course)
Oh, and it's open to bloggers worldwide,
but you don't have to come all the way to New Zealand to pick up your prize, haha !
I'll send it out of course.
step 2:

AZviaTx said...

Joyce, thanks for sharing the YouTube video. It was inspirational and fun. How old is that kid? Wow.
I peeked around both of your blogs, and shops. You do really good stuff LADY. For reals. The texture of the hair on Cinderella, the frog detail from Someday...Come. It made me smile. I think one of my faves though is "Send in the Clowns". I've always had a thing for clowns. So many folks I know are afraid of them or just find all clowns creepy. I don't. I kinda like them!
Treasure Earth will, undoubtedly, turn out to be just as amazing as the rest of your art. Heck, I think she looks better 1/2 finished then my stuff looks at 100%!!! Can't wait to see how she turns out. I hope you'll post. Off I go to visit another artist and see what kinds of mischief I can get in to!! Have lots of fun traveling the world on OWOH. Tina

Hi Joyce! It's so great to meet you and see your beautiful artwork. I would love to be in the running for your piece. Funny, I was just telling my husband I'd love to see New Zealand someday.

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the blogging world and for your nice comment! I do hope you return soon :)

Happy Creating!

Treasure Earth is magical!!!! There is also a powerful message within, if only more people would treasure our beautiful planet. It was so nice to stay awhile and enjoy a coffee with you. If you get the chance I would love you to visit me downunder (Australia) so I can return the favour. #819
