Post No.2230 *** The more you praise and celebrate your life....

the more there is in life to celebrate.~Oprah Winfrey

It was fun to practice hands . Hands aren't easy to draw and I think I have to practice much more .

But for now I am quite satisfied with the spread.
I love the quote  -it's from a Fiskars stampset I have for many years now and I was happy that it came to mind for this month's theme " Let's Celebrate" 
that Sheila hosts over at
Rechts oben in der Seitenliste findest Du wie immer das Übersetzungstool!♥♥♥


  1. I actually like these hands. I created an altered book about hands, and all mine were from magazines, not hand painted like yours. I also adore that quote. Your addition to Art Journal Journey is very beautiful and special. It is truly a celebration of Sheila's theme.

  2. Ich finde, dass du das toll gemacht hast, liebe Susi ♥

  3. Liebe Susi,
    diese Hände sind dir ganz großartig gelungen,
    es ist sicher nicht einfach, aber das Ergebnis
    kann sich wirklich sehen lassen, auch das Zitat gefällt mir
    sehr gut.
    Ich wüsche dir einen gemütlichen Tag.
    LG Sadie

  4. Your painted hands look very fine to me, and I rather like the swirly background too, just right for the hands.
    Yes, that's a great quote, we can celebrate lots of little things in our life every day.

  5. Beautiful hands your so good, I wish you a merry Christmas ;O))
    greetings from Denmark - Dorte

  9. These hands look so professionally drawn compared to my face that I posted yesterday in my drawing journal. :) I think they look great and it's a super page for Sheila's challenge. :) Hope it's a great day so far. Hugs-Erika

  10. Those are fantastic words from Oprah - and I think the hands are already looking fantastic. With lots of practice you'll be up there with Dürer's praying hands soon!! Wonderful uplifting pages.
