Thank you for your love, support, thoughts and prayers.
I know it may feel frustrating,
like your prayers for me are unsatisfied…
But I feel honoured to be thought of by you

Every thought, blessing, healing ‘vibe’ and prayer
is of immense value to me

I have accepted my circumstances and
do not pray to be healed as in ‘cured’
I pray of healing in the biblical interpretation
as in to be ‘made whole’

This prayer has been answered:
as in this moment
spiritually, emotionally, socially,
I feel at peace, of worth, valued,
deeply loved and
wholeheartedly ‘whole’

I am filled with abundant gratitude
for the love, respect, support and grace
my community has given me

I cherish that in company my presence is appreciated
and that my absence is felt

Please continue sending your love, best wishes, and prayers

I know we will get through this
Whatever the outcome,

Paisley Heart Thanks Owl

'Paisley Heart Thanks Owl'

6"x6" Posca Markers on Paper

When I completed 'Hypnotic Heart Owl' (see here) I could see the drawing of the owl I used looked like a Paisley pattern.  I've been wanting to make thank you cards, so I decided to make a design I could use using the owl in a Paisley pattern.  I recently bought new small Posca Markers in Black, Blue, Green and Pink, so I used them.

After I finished the thank you card design (above) I saw the pink around the heart-face could also be used with curves like the rest of the body, and I also wanted to draw the owl larger, on its own without the word 'thanks,' so I redrew it (below:)
