One Million Cranes

I like this 12 inch square size. In my previous post you can see how this canvas started out. I can always paint over it, but some of the texture will be lost, I'll see. I'm going to have to take a trip to the thrift stores to see if I can get some more canvas. I have some more ideas about layers.

Please see Quoteflections post about school children folding a 1000 origami cranes to raise money for Japan. They hope to raise $1M by including other schools in the One Million Cranes project.

Also Handmade for Japan eBay pottery auction to raise money for Japan ends Sunday. Their goal was increased to $50,000 and they're almost there already.

A nice way to start the day reading about people helping people.


  1. The morning news was, as usual, dismal. So what an uplifting moment it was to read your post about people helping people. The real force of life remains with the quiet people of the world.

  2. Hi Kittie, thanks, yes so many earthquakes in other locations, radiation fears, so I'm trying to find joy in the small things in life, we all need that nowadays.

  3. I love the colors in that plaque. Earthy, southwestern. Just lovely. The design, too.

  4. I enjoy your earth tone artwork and colors. Thanks for the links to thoughtful initiatives.

  5. LOVELY work....have toyed with the idea of learning how to throw pots and admire those who do...

  6. Hi Wye, thanks for stopping by. I don't throw any of my pots - they are all hand built by either pinching, rolling a slab of clay and shaping or by coiling rolls of clay and putting them together. I highly recommend it, Clay is so much fun and very therapeutic for me.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
