Twin Sisters

Twin Sisters
6 X 8 canvas
I imagined that "the sisters" decided to have a reunion. It took some doings to get them all together as they had scattered all over the world. When they left home, each took a little piece of the "big house" with them. You know, the way you take your memories with you where ever you go. Well anyway, they made big plans to all gather on a special summer day. They would meet early in the morning down near the the garden while the sunflowers were all looking east.
They decided it would be so much fun to wear their yellow dresses. The one their Mother had so lovingly made for each of them for their journey into the world.
And one more thing, they would all bring their butters.
The twins didn't make it to the sunflower garden. They wore their yellow dresses but while all the other sisters met in the garden, they were in the attic playing dress up.
Enough for now,
Sharon

  1. The Sister Series is wonderful. I just finished reading "Garden Spells" which is about two sisters (among other things)so I think I've had sisters on my mind. This series seems to fit right in.

  11. Hi Sharon: I can't express how much your artwork and sharing nature has inspired me to at least "try" to find my voice in this wonderful world of mixed media. I love it sooo much and thanks to kind souls like you and many others I have encountered along this media path by blogging has given me encouragement to try. I love all your work and find that each one is just breathtaking. Thank you sooo much for all your helpful tips/hints and tutorials. Today I went as far back as your 12 days of Christmas - thank you, thank you, thank you. I even cut & cleaned up some of my old foam stamps, ha : ) tomorrow, I plan on organizing my tissue papers, ha : ) see what you've done, thank you and I love it : )
    Love & blessings, Sandra : )

  13. Hi Sharon!!
    I just saw your comment and wanted to tell you that you are right on what I was thinking (your muse Norah is quite on the mark!!). I did get to working on my journal this weekend and helped work some of the "stuff" out...and I thought of going smaller, (and the square idea is even better!! :)) Thank you for taking time to share with me, I admire you and your work is soooo amazing. Thanks for your support. xoxooxoxoox lia
