I LOVE YOU No.1 Golden Cross

[caption id="attachment_921" align="aligncenter" width="539"]This golden cross was placed outside the laundromat in South Terrace in South Fremantle. 4 Days later I recieved a phone call from a guy called David to say could he really take me home. I was confused but  I then found out that he had not found the painting with the blue heart. Only the blue heart with the information on it. No painting. Golden Cross was placed outside the laundromat in South Terrace in South Fremantle. Four days later I received a phone call from a guy called David who asked, could he really take me home. I was confused but I then found out that he had not found the painting, only the blue heart with the information on it. He was disappointed but said he enjoyed the moment when he found the note. I hope the people who took the painting are enjoying it...:-)[/caption]

 

 

I LOVE YOU - NO. 2 Huggs for the 'Sign'

IMG_0515

This is a very special story that came from dropping off a painting on the foreshore at Mends St in South Perth 27th January 2013.

I received this email from Jo, one day after I placed it on the footpath, near a ticket dispensing machine...

Huggs for the 'Sign'

I want to say Thank You for the sign!  I believe in Signs of the spiritual kind and perhaps this is one.

 

You don’t know me…but I walk around the River most mornings around 5am with a girl friend and her dog.

We are forever picking up some of the rubbish which is left behind on our beautiful foreshore as we walk along.

 

This morning to my surprise I picked up a sign with ‘I Love You’ on it and my friend said how appropriate it was that I had found this piece.

It was near the children’s playground South Perth Jetty lying close to a bin.

 I brought it back to work with me this morning, when I had my glasses on and I could see your contact details.


 

I wanted to let you know that your piece was a lovely sign and has gone to a good home.


I also was interested in your website and checked it out.

I would like to talk to you about joining my Mom in your art classes.

She is nearly ‘75’ years young and has always loved art and crafts and is a very creative lady.

But all her creativity and joy were silenced when her beautiful daughter / my sister was murdered 17 years ago.

 

I thought perhaps your classes may encourage her passion again and bring back that light in her eyes.

 

Anyway would love to hear from you when you have time.

 

Stay happy healthy and safe.

 

Huggs

How cool is this picture...and story... :-)  My painting which is a preliminary sketch of a water crystal, for a large painting called 'Gratitude'  has found a very loving home, hanging with many other beautiful messages of love and gratitude...THANK YOU JO ....

Who will be the next wonderful person to rescue and adopt one of my 'babies'... will it be you?

I LOVE YOU

During the past several years, I have been traveling and moving house quite a bit. In each move, I have been letting go of the things that I have out-grown, but somehow  the paintings that I have done over the years have accumulated, some I have sold and others have stayed with me or been stored in boxes in garages all over Perth. I took them to market and some went to fine homes. The others are now wanting to find someone who will love them and put them out for the world to see instead of sitting in a dark box in a dusty garage.

The little boy in the movie "Pay it Forward" inspired me to do something that would be of pleasure for others, so, that's when I decided to share my paintings with the world. On the back of each painting I placed a photocopy of a blue heart

that said "I  LOVE YOU"

If you love me...

Then take me home,

I'm yours for free,

And if you don't,

Leave me for someone who will...

My mum's home is

www.xtraordinar.com.au.

 

Each painting is randomly placed out on a footpath anywhere I go.

All I have asked in return is a photo of my "child" in its new environment...

with its new owner or not...and permission to share it on my website and Facebook...
