The festival of Get to the heART of it!!!! asks everyone to share your HeART by words, art, video – whatever speaks to you around love of art or love of life!
Mother Henna by artist Kara L.C. Jones has been working on an incredible project of making 1,000 Faces of Mother Henna. I am going to write more about that on Friday … it is quite a project!! But she is also sponsoring a Blog Festival: Get to the heART of it!!!! You can see the details in her post. So I am getting to the HeART of it also … hence the badge that celebrates her Festival.
Mother Henna – Get to the HeART of it!!
I am joining into this celebration and I encourage you to join in also!Â The gist of joining to is to “post an entry on your own blog before Valentines Day 2009. Share your love of art or love of life or host a heART themed party or tell us about the heART of yourself. Tell us what is at the heART of you! Words, art, video, anything you wish. Write a poem, share a short story, all formats welcome.“

After thinking about what really represents the “the heART of myself,” I realized that this particular image is the visual representation of myself and my soul.Â This vibrant, colorful painting was one that took me dozens of hours to complete. It is also very precious to me because I was spending some time at home with my parents when I started this … and my mom spent time with me choosing some of these pieces of fabric and paper to put together to create this piece. I love it and it speaks so deeply to me.
For many people it is their favorite piece of mine … If I had to choose one piece to keep, this would be it.Â Also the double faces look a little like a heart. So this is my contribution for Getting to the heART of it!!!! I hope you also will share your HeART by words, art, video – whatever speaks to you around love of art or love of life!
I would like to acknowledge today that a most wondrous, historic, hopeful event happened as Obama became the President of the US today!!Â This has the potential to be a unifying force in this whole earth with the leadership of such a smart, thoughtful person!Â Such a joy!!! Â I would love to hear how you are doing. Thanks for coming by!!
