It was himself's birthday recently and to celebrate I painted him a picture. It's been a big year with lots of changes, new house, new baby, new dog et all. When we got married we had Kahlil Gibran's readings at the ceremony - I adore his writings and incorporated his piece on marriage in this picture, along with two love birds and the wings are made from 70's fashion illustrations (the men are sporting some awesome looking tashes!!) . The centre of the heart has three flowers representing our family unit, all together now... ahhhhhh


  1. Hi Sjor,
    I couldn't find an e-mail, so I'm leaving a comment here. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You mentioned free machining for quilting. Do you know how to do that? I've never done it, but if it's quicker than applique, great! Do you still use adhesive backing or not? I like your "love" painting with the sweet little birds!

  2. Hey TAmmy - just sent you a PM

  3. I am one of your fellow flier classmates! Great to meet you and I totally love your artwork! Great job with your blog!-Kelly
