August BJP



Finished. The two silver birds represent two friends who died last week...two more sweet souls gone from us.

And my dad would have been 94 today...he died at 66.

Hi Bobbi
I look at each page you do. Even though each is on the same background, you always manage to make each piece unique and different. This piece definately had it own rhythm and flow. I like the way it makes my eyes flow the bead path.
xx, Carol

Really, really lovely, Bobbi ~ I love the two little birds (and the thought behind them) and also the *flow* of the silver piece in the center...may I ask what it is? GORGEOUS! I am starting to imagine what all your hands must look like, grouped together...wordless, but saying so much.

So so beautiful! The colors, the flow of the design leading the eye right to the little birds. Such a lovely meaningful piece, Bobbi.

Wonderful memorial. The beading is so evocative of the ocean swirls..movement and tide pools..it is terrific.

Such a beauty - and beautifully framed too. I love that you remembered your friends with the birds - a lovely tribute.

Robbie said...

Sorry for your loss, Bobbi, but you have made a lovely tribute to your friends, and father too. I love that silver piece in the center.

I love how you added the birds as a tribute to your friends and I am sorry for your loss. It is difficult to lose people we love.

As always, many, many thanks for all your kind thoughts and words...they were especially meaningful to me on this post.

I LOVE this! Actually, I've loved all your pieces. The idea of just using the one format and putting so much variety into it is very appealing. I'm sorry for the loss of your friends. The birds are a very fitting memorial, I think.

The spiral of life, here, with a newt or maybe it's an eel, some type of primitive life form, in the center to remind us of how vulnerable we are and tenuous is this life we have. Makes me conscious of giving the most to every moment of it. I'm sorry about your two friends and your dad.

Thanks for your comments on my recovery blog, Bobbi... They and you mean a lot to me.

I just caught up on a bunch of your posts... LOVE the idea of a weekly excursion into the county with picnic lunch and beads. What a brilliant idea!

Hugs, Robin A.
