Free Spirit

"Free Spirit" mixed media (c) by Shiloh Moore - Face Detail

The other day I discovered a new style of art that really attracts me - mixed media portraits. I fell in love with art by Rachelle Panagarry, and on her site, 'Art Eye Candy,' she has some YouTube clips to show you how she does her gorgeous faces, found here.

This next one is a detail of the top right hand corner.

And the lower right corner has a hummingbird:

I personally love birthdays, mainly the contact with friends, but I know a lot of people find birthdays difficult and even painful. So I thought a bit more about what I wanted to wish for a person's birthday, and I wrote this: (note: you can enlarge the image by clicking on it)

Then, as I love to send cards, I thought about what I'd like to say to somebody I knew was struggling, and what I could say in a card to them. I wrote this:
