New Painting and Don't forget Cresendoh Next Week!!!!


To be nobody but yourself -- in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else -- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; never stop fighting.
~ee cummings~


All my life I have tried to conform. But never could quite do it!!! I was always the rebel.  Just a little off. Never wanting to be and do what other people wanted me to do. So stubborn.  I am so glad I did not conformed. I have lived quite a colorful life! (And I'm not done yet!) So much color to be added to it!!! Life is great!!!
Do something this week that you have always wanted to do but was different from what everyone else does! Try it!
I know I will. This week is my Birthday Week and I am going to do something unique. Not sure what. But something different!

Please visit Paint Party Friday hosted by Kristin and Eva! 

Also don't forget about my Guest Curator Spot starting Monday at Cresendoh!!!!
Our very own Kristin Dudish and Nelly Eisenhower(My little girl) is one of my featured artists!

Hey Happy Birthday for this week - I'll be intrigued to hear what this unique adventure will be - do share once it's happened!!

This lady looks like she knows a thing or two about the ways of the world. Very wise and noble.

Wow Heather..she is FABULOUS! Stunning work...so deeply meaningful and empowering!

We are kindreds..i have always been the black sheep..rebel and different...but i love that! Glad you have embraced your unique nature!!This piece speaks volumes...it is very potent..and the power-feathers emanate such Freedom and Knowing your own truth..and thinking for oneself ..such empowerment! I love the foliage ..the meditative style mandalas and feathers around her...awesome!!

I love this painting - so full of imaginative detail & vibrancy. I also really like the accompanying quote. Wonderful entry for this week's PPF!

Happy Birthday! Enjoy your week!

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

I love all the detail you've put into this her expression is perfect- almost a combination of pride and defiance.....and I think it's wonderful how each of the feathers at the top are different but has it's own place- much like us artists who differ from the norm, but somehow manage make our own way....Happy Birthday- and have fun celebrating being yourself!

Christine said...

she's beautiful in her stunning headdress! wow.
and happy birthday this week!

Kristin Dudish said...

Wheee!!! Happy Birthday Week!!!

What a wonderful painting. I thought the regular version was really beautiful, but then I clicked and looked at the larger one, it's even more amazing.

Enjoy your birthday celebrations.

Hi Heather, love the painting and happy birthday week. I've never managed to conform totally, I heard my Grandmother telling someone once that I was an artist so it explained alot... both ladies sighed and ummed in agreement....just made me laugh.... have a good weekend

Joni Nickrent said...

Happy Birthday Week to you! Awesome painting and amazing message! Great work! POP ART MINIS

Anne said...

Happy Birthday! I hope it is a fabulous day for you! :)

So exciting about the guest spot. I'll be traveling this coming week, but will try to stop by and say hello.

Your painting is lovely and that's a great quote. I agree with you entirely about the conforming thing.

Happy PPF!

Pointy Pix said...

Jewels said...

Awesome! We weren't made to be cookies spit out by the same cookie cutter shape! We were all created to be individuals! I'm a bit quirky! I'm just "me"!

Jewels said...

And, all of your work is beautiful, too!

Melisa said...

OK, this is my favorite of your girls so far. I've probably said that before, but this one is it!

True Self Studio said...

Beautiful Beautiful Work! Thank goodness for the rebel in all of us who choose to let the freedom of who we are out in such artistic ways. :)

Bren said...

I love it, a B-Day Week! You go girl, we will be waiting to hear what you got up to, in the meantime I'm going to work on some fun myself.

Heather, she is absolutely stunning! What a talent you have!

Elisa Choi said...

Heather, I so love your entry today. The beautiful woman and the wordings! Like you I am trying not to conform but sometimes I struggle with being myself. I have to be true to myself and I think that's the only thing that matters because everything will just follow. Thanks for the inspiration.
