where there is life there is hope

 'dum vita est spes est (where there is life there is hope)'
Pastel image copyright 2013 by Shiloh Moore

An amazing man with very severe ME for decades now, recently wrote to me 'All is not bleak though, ...' 'Where there is life there is hope.'  

This blew me away and the quote (taken from the latin 'dum vita est spes est') really connected with me.  

I haven't been well enough to do any big painting or major artwork, but the quote inspired me to sit up to do these two quick (2 minute) pastel drawings, to bring the Latin phrase to life. 

I like to contemplate life and hope as the new year approaches.  May 2014 and beyond be filled with peace, love, joy, hope and as good health as possible.

Magnets of artwork

A friend showed me how she made magnets from her artwork.  Simply laminate wallet sized photos of artwork, then glue a magnet strip on the back.  I have made up a few batches of 20 of my favourite pieces I've done.  (Contact me if you'd like to buy one!) 

Shown here are: Row 1: 'Dragonfly', 'Juliet', and 'Circle of Life'
Row 2: 'Where there is life there is hope (green)', 'SpiralDaschund', and 'Where there is life there is hope (pink)'
Row 3: 'Bodhi Leaf', 'Rainbow Girl', 'Wisdom (Learn to Play)'
Row 4: 'Tori Under the Pink', 'PopArt Whimsical Owl', 'SpiralBird' and 'SpiralKittyLove'
Row 5: 'Enjoy the Puddles', 'Couple Expecting', 'SarBear Owl', 'Tree of Life'

And here are the remaining leftovers of some keyrings I had made up. 

'Rainbow Girl', 'Dragonfly' and 'Alanis'. 

I'm pretty pleased with them!  I hope the recipients are too.
