Postcard Number 4 – nearly there!

Here is the fourth one to arrive from Michelle Ledesma, with a stunning quote on the back.

‘…and the time came when the risk it took to remain in a tightly closed bud became infinitely more painful than the risk it took to blossom.’ Anais Nin (1903 – 1977).

And isn’t life like that sometimes? We hide away, curled around our work, art, thoughts, life, and eventually we just have to give in to the pressure and explode out into the world where people can see right to the beautiful heart of our expression of the thing, with all the gloriousness of colour and idea there to behold! Then we wonder why it took us so long to share and try to be quicker to respond next time.

Thank you Michelle for the reminder, and the beautiful orchid on my wall.


About joslittlepictures

I frequently have trouble trying to decide how to describe myself. Am I an artist who makes jewellery too, or am I a jewellery artist who draws, paints, makes prints,takes photos, makes gardens,plays with book binding,and occasionally working in stone and mosaic? Then there is my delight in words as well. And I love cooking. What I don't do so well is housework, constant order, or keeping to schedules. I make lists, often starting with something I have completed just so I can start by ticking something off!
