Words to Consider

  • Tikkun Olam (roughly translated, I understand, as Heal the World)
    “It is not incumbent upon you to complete the work, but neither are you at liberty to desist from it.” –Rabbi Tarfon.
  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

Wow - great paintchip art!


Those are so cool!


WOW! I love them! The top one is my very favorite!

You do the BEST paper art! I just love these!

Trudy Neill of Windemere Farm

I find these so interesting, Anita. Where do you get all the material to make the actual scenes from? I have never seen such a variety of pictures ...some of them are almost haunting....(not in a bad way I might add).

Your paint chip art is wonderful. I love paint chips, have a whole box full of them, but haven't done a lot with them artwise. You inspire me.


These are all marvelous. I love the composition and balance of each of them!

Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

This is the first time I've seen paint chip art and I LOVE IT!!!! How fun and creative! Cindy


Let me add to the chorus of approval - both these and the last ones these are great! I adore the two naughty cherubs.
I wanted to ask - how big are the paint chips? The ones we have in the UK are usually tiny, only a couple of centimetres, but these look big enough to get good sized stuff on them.


These are fabulous, brilliant work my dear, of course my fave is the Emma one its so sweet. They are all very well done.. I haven't seen these big paintchips areoun here. I have stacks of the other ones..


I really like your paint chip atc's and especially like the vivid color of your art pieces. Do you use photoshop or some other program to get such clarity? When I download the free clipart it looks so dull and not color true. I'd love to know what you're doing!
