One World One Heart 2011

I've been waiting!!!! Thank Goodness you came :)
I'm totally excited to be a part of One World One Heart 2011 and pleased to meet you :)
My name is Shelle, I live on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia... (north of Brisbane, keep going until you hit The Big Pineapple take a right, then when you glimpse the Pacific Ocean you'll know you're close)...
Tucked away in a small beachside community, I keep in contact with the rest of the world via here :) my blog, the internet (except my mum that's still via the phone, she's so not into computers bless her cotton socks). I love (I mean, I LOVE, red hot throbbing valentine love) to dabble in art, painting, drawing, (mainly figurative), digital art & digital photography too - not just producing, but viewing & absorbing it too, high brow, low brow, mono brow anything & everything. I'm constantly amazed and inspired by the talent, creativity and generosity in the online community & totally thrilled to be a part of this family after finally becoming a 'newbie' blogger just over 3 weeks ago...
Sooo, please... if you check out my DOOR PRIZES (below) and leave a comment if you are interested in winning any of these original Art pieces, I'd be stoked :) Also if you comment I can contact you and visit YOUR blog, too easy!! These prizes can be won by any active bloggers worldwide - that means it could be YOU :) and it's drawn by Random Generator Feb 17th... I think that's it! By the way, nice to meet you, and good luck in the Draw ;) and Thanks Lisa for organising One World One Heart :)

Hello Sunshine! Bet a bit of sunshine would be a good thing for your country right about now! Maybe dry things out a bit. I live in Arizona and we get way too much sun, and heat. It's cold & gray today, but that won't last long. I noticed that you're a new blogger, congrats. I set mine up a while back but really suck at keeping up with it. Not necessarily to busy, just a procrastinating Libra trait, I think. Blaming it on the stars here...! I love the way you go off on tangents, like your mind is so full of wonderous things that you can't wait to get them all out. And, you are blastedly funny to read. I bet you crack your friends & family up with laughter. I love the big-eyed babies in your artwork. Playful, yet soulful. I hope you're having fun with this flight of fancy event that Lisa S. put together, meeting lots of new people and seeing some great artful inspirations. Oh, and good luck with the Archibald awards!! Tina

Oh Shelle! Love your paintings and drawings! What a talent! I don't know which I love more the woman and daughter or the mermaids! All would look wonderful in my newly remodeled bathroom! (We had water damage due to an over pressurized water line and had lots of work to do, and still do! )Anyway Thanks for spreading all of that warm sunshine from your blog world. I just had to become a follower! I'm waving to you from the US in Ohio. #220 needlewings at mac dot com.

So...I am never 1st either...I have enter far more challenges and only got 2 and 1 3rd, to much work for a blinkie! So now I watch and challenge whenever. I was always picked last for spelling groups, I am a s#$%1 speller.
Comments so far are 50 something...what I like to get out of them is advise from the heart, good or indifferent for I need the push to see where I am going with art...
Your art touches me for I have a 1 year old grand daughter, Little Toots, did you vote for her? Back to what I was saying...your art during out children with big eyes, she has big blues...I was wondering do you make your art from your visons within or from looking at real life or pictures? Just thought it would be cool to have one of Little Toots and I maybe on our swing in the woods...cost?...i dont have a extra arm or art? dont have paint...old stuff...stop...out of hand toots!!!
Well, I am off again to the realm of cooking, I dont like to but the gut calls...later, Tootsie

Hey Shelle, so glad to meet you. I just roared at your directions to where you live...the pineapple!! LOLOLOL You are just too funny!! Looks like the two of us could get into some real trouble if we spent a weekend together...God help the USA and/or Australia!! LOL

Love your work and your spirit!! As for your mother not warming up to the techno world, well, if I hadn't returned to school, I probably would have done the same...cotton socks and all!! However, I can't imagine my life without this thingy...have met some wonderful people through this medium.

Have a wonderful week....we're digging out of this arctic mess that was dumped on this west Texas town Wed....bleh, not a fan of snow!!

Hi Shelle,
What a friendly blog, I get a real sense of you in just the first few words !!
I'm just south of Brisbane in the Northern Rivers, where I also enjoy the more relaxed style of life in the valleys around Mt Warning, an extinct volcanic Caldera.
A 'hotspot' that draws lots of amazing weather.

Haven't decided yet whether I'll get time to do a Giveaway this I have so much on my 'internet plate' ATM, but please feel free to pop into my blog and say hi fellow DUSTer .....hehehe
m.jack47 [@ ] is a better email than my google one, that insists on being my main, when it's not.

Shauna Henry said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog! Your artwork is lovely! I am so jealous of you being in Australia, we received 20 inches of snow last week, and are due for another 8 in the next few days! In Oklahoma!
