Embrace Life

Since I was MIA from my blog last year I wanted to share a painting I created for my dear sister-in-law last November for her b-day. I still can't believe I only created 5 blog posts sad. I'm making up for it now, two posts in one week. Yippeee! You GO girl! Hopefully, I'll keep it up! The title of this post as well as the title of the painting is what I'll continue to do this year. I hope you will too!

Size: 11" x 14" on stretched canvas
Created using acrylic paint, stamps & collage papers

I hand stitched fabric flowers and beads directly onto canvas.

I stamped on a strip of canvas and attached it using tiny brads.

Thanks so much for coming to visit!

Creative Blessings,
Lisa :)


  1. Hi lisa, I hope you had a great new- years day, and the new year will bring you health,
    happiness and a lot of creativity, and with a little luck you could be the winner
    of my new- years giveaway. You are heartily invited to join it if you like it.
    Great to see your artwork again.
    Embrace life is a great motto

  2. Lisa, I love this! It actually took my breath away when I first saw it. LOL, I'm with you on the blogging - I don't even know if I had five posts over 2011 and like you am making up for it this year. Wow...are we awesome or what! LOL

  3. Welcome back to blogland!

    The mood you have created here reminds me of Miss Havisham in Great Expectations. We just watched a wonderful new adaptation on the BBC with Gillian Anderson as Miss H.

    Miss H did not embrace life...

  4. Welcome back! It is hard at times to sit and type something out and have photos for the blog.

    Embrace Life is lovely

  5. How inventive. Love the flowers and the way the canvas is painted. Beautiful.

  6. Oh Lisa, it's just gorgeous!!! My word for this year is going to be "create" I do believe. There are many different mediums I'm wanting to try, some on gourds and some not. I would love to learn to draw faces like you do but I also want to dig deep into watercolor painting and also into mixed media. And just CREATE! Your pieces are all so wonderful and it's always nice coming to visit your blog.

  7. Lisa Happy New Year for you.
    Your newest work is amazing.
    She is a beauty. Absolutely stunning work. Love them.

  8. It's good to be back ladies! Thanks so much for your sweet messages!

    Sue- Let's hope I can keep it up! :)
    WrightStuff aka Lisa- You are too funny! I have yet to see that adaptation. Will have to watch it. :)
    Barbara- Great word for the year! Wishing you continued blessings! :)

    hugs :)

  9. Hi Lisa, it's so good to see you back again!! And glad that you're still creating with your unique talent--Love your Art!

  10. O, love your painted faces and this one has a great message on it. I'm realy glad you're blogging again :) Now waiting for something sewn or stitched :) What a great beggining of a year.

  11. I am sure your sister-in-law adores her painting. You are one talented gal. I would love to learn to paint faces...with real noses. LOL Maybe someday I will learn.

    Glad to see you posting again. I have been somewhat MIA with creating. Being in college sure takes up a lot of time.

    Have a great week! And Happy New Year!

  12. Absolutely lovely. I'm sure your sister-in-law loved it. I know I do! :)
