I love these. Have I told you that I'm becoming obsessed with birds because of you?
And good verse. We had this passage written in white icing on our white wedding cake. My husband picked it and had it done for me.

Hi Geninne! I love this piece!

Here we call them lotus rather than water lily.

Here is the links for comparison:

I love this just as a line drawing. But I'm sure I will love the finished project too.

I echo everyone's sentiments. Drawing is definitely not my strong suit yet your work fuels the mediums that I work with.

Hi! I really like what you do! I've discovered your blog reasently, and I love your arts! I'm from Sweden, and me and four other friends have a blog about arts and crafts and I would like to show some of your wonderful stuff there sometimes, is that ok? I borrowed two pics earlier but now I understand I should have asked first, I'm really sorry about that. I didn't realise I coulden't use a picture like that. I refered to you and your blog and told our readers about your crations.
So I would like to ask you, in case I would like to show some other picture in the future, can I borrow a picture from you and of course refer to you and your blog?

Thank you for so much inspiration!

so nice to see your process. So you start with a sketch first?
That is the scripture that is engraved into my wedding ring :)
