Peace bits coming in fast and furious now, isn't that a paradox?

Three more to show you today and three more tomorrow. I am swamped trying to keep up but as the deadline looms I better find another gear!

Back to my hippie days when I thought we could change the world we used this sign for Peace. I believe it's a world wide symbol now. I still believe we can change the world. I am honored to be a part of this wonderful collective woodcut print. PEACE

I often host Art Parties; essentially I provide a theme, a table full of art supplies and invite friends over for a pot-luck evening of art and conversation. A theme from a recent party was "cut outs a la Matisse". To accommodate the shape of my puzzle piece I decided to once again borrow Matisse's wonderfully fluid female forms  and to have her peacefully enjoying a day of sunbathing at the beach.

Choosing something about Peace was endless.  So many choices but only one to choose.  Last year, my favorite cat and animal,  Vincent the cat,  died from an invasive fast growing tumor.  Now I know your probably thinking what the heck does this have to do with peace?  When Vinnie sat on my lap or cuddled next to me it brought both of us great peace to be together, his more obvious because he could purr.  At night,  Vinnie liked to sleep on my tummy and if I got up for a few minutes and would come back to bed he would be waiting for my lap to go back to sleep on.  I have never had an animal that could bring me so much peace and love in too many ways to write and I am hoping Vinnie rests in peace, and there is a heaven where we can see each other again.  I miss him every day.
