I, for one, have struggled to come to grips with the enormity of the disaster in Japan.
On Monday I quoted about hope and faith. Wednesday's post was devoted to green in honour of St Patrick's Day. Although it was not my intention that these two posts be related, when my lovely friend Kena pointed out that green is the colour of hope, I decided that today I'd take a look at the colour traditionally associated with faith which is -
In particular artists whose works feature blue and who are donating proceeds from the sale of their works to disaster relief in Japan -
Clockwise from top left: "Paper Boats" original photography print by LAccentNou, "Watch Your Step" fine art photo print by abcdimages, salt fired tumbler by ippuku, "Butterfly in Whimsical Garden" in green and blue by studionocoro, Envelope Collection Collage by erindollar, "If Aunt Fernanda was a Chair..." print by ohriginals, "Boat Reflex" photograph and "Blue Egg" photograph
Top row: "Little Explorer I" print by cakewithgiants, "Japan Be Strong" print by GreenOptimist, "Love by Water" print by olivedear
Bottom row: "Celebration Life" print by zime, "Butterfly in Whimsical Garden" print, "Polar" print by zime
There are many other artists also donating proceeds from the sale of their works and all of them should be applauded for their generosity. It's nice I think to be able to purchase a beautiful piece of art that can remind you that both you and the artist have helped Japan to get back on their feet after such a terrible disaster.
May this weekend see you treasure the little things,
