My “Bonfire” painting from sketch to canvas & still growing…


Done! ©copyright2014owpp

I promised a while back that I would slow down on my blog to work on painting among others & would let you know about the progress so, here is one of the results!
Bonfire is a sketch I had made in 2011, my brush took over as it happens in few but special moments without my ever thinking of a bomb-fire & to my surprise that’s what unfolded in front of my eyes…
You can check here… https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=Bomb-fire
Three years fast forward and I try & capture the magic of those colors on a 40/30 cm (11.8/15.7 inches) & aiming to go further in a much bigger size of 100/140 cm (39.3/55.1 inches)
Wish me luck 🙂
Here goes the process from 1st layer to last…

Happy Anniversary!

You registered on WordPress.com 2 years ago!

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!

This is what I found in my post today.
I had forgotten the exact date but am very grateful for being given the opportunity to thank first my closest who helped me with my first very-hesitant-baby steps into WordPress, patiently putting up with my incessant questioning & secondly all my amazing followers which have amounted to the staggering number of 706!
Something I had never dreamed of 🙂

Your fidelity & constant positive feedback amazes & encourages me every day anew.
To celebrate this milestone & my gratitude, I offer you this photo which is a personal flower arrangement dating from the cold month of February with a rose from a bouquet I had received & leaves I had found on a stroll lying on the ground with such striking colors I couldn’t resist bringing them back home in the hope they would inspire me into creativity which is what happened!

Once again, thank you!

Capturing tenderness

Baby poetry

These photos are a first in my photography’s experience which I’m quite proud of! There’s nothing like the joys of being grandparents, one of them, appreciating every bit of the miracle of babyhood.
The innocence, spontaneity when they run into your arms, the strength to say no in all honesty and force when they measure no more than three apples 🙂
I am sure a lot of my followers understand what I’m talking about and I hope these photos have captured the emotion of the moments you’ve spent with them too!

Natural creamy toothpaste fast & easy recipe


©copyright2014owpp

©copyright2014owpp

Since I started to make two years ago my own clean & organic toothpaste I look on the regular one as soap which might seem weird to some but I imagine it is a matter of habit & this has become mine.
I’ve wanted to give you the recipe for quite a while but I had a lot left and no photos from the last batch.

It seems providence decided otherwise when the jar broke 😉 so here goes the recipe…

Ingredients
———-

1. 6 Tbsp. (heaped) organic Arrowroot or rice flour (cheaper)
2. 5 tsp. Baking soda
3. 4 tsp. (flat) organic virgin Coconut oil or Shea butter if that’s what you have at home, it’s cheaper too (I quote Wikipedia “In some African countries such as Benin, Shea butter is used for cooking oil”)
4. 1/2 to 1 tsp. peppermint oil (I like it strongly flavored so I put 42 drops)
5. 6 Tbsp. Glycerin

Method
——

1. Put all the ingredients in a small bowl, mix until smooth
2. Put in a clean glass or plastic container & label it with date (in my experience it never got bad)

Let me know if you try it I would love to know about it!
