tiger pause by Rachel Linder
Since it already IS Chinese New Year in Asia I am posting this on Saturday where I am. It is officially the YEAR OF THE TIGER, and I couldn't be more excited since I was born in a Tiger time.
This painting.....oh, how I love it. I will be changing my blog header in the next weeks for my two-year blogiversary and I recently selected six pieces of artwork online that caught my fancy for various reasons as potential new blog headers. This piece, tiger pause, was one of them. I then emailed each of the artists asking his/her permission to use their work, in the event that theirs was my final selection. To date, I have heard from two of them (the artist of this work is not one of them). Amazingly, one of the artists who responded is the artist of the work that I actually was most in love with! What nice people to give permission to have their wondrous creations as possible blog headers!
I will definitely feature in a later post the art of the other person to give her kind permission to use her art as a header in my blog. And I have decided that, even should I receive permission from others, I will change my header to the DAZZLING art of the other who has already responded. I'll write more about him at that time: name, link to his gallery, etc.
Let's see.......it seems like there should be something else of importance to mention in this post....
O, yeah, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, too!
