the touch of red
is the Heart of the Matter,
isn't it?

that seems to instill peace}}

love seeing he santos hand! my hand collection is growing but no santos hand as yet! I'll be looking. thanks for the reference material.and,yes, the red touch is perfect!


I remember carving, years and years ago, the sort of wood block you present here. What a nice memory. Alas, they were lost somewhere along the way.


I like your idea of having an ever-changing shrine, Steph!! I want to adopt your tradition!!! Is that ok? Your santos hand is especially nice one!!


I believe many of the Santo's hands on the market today, are reproductions. If carved, most likely come from Indonesia. ( learned from my friend Mike who has shop Bodega and sells them) If cast in resin I don't know where they come from.


I love your tradition, and you changing shrines. this one with the graceful hand and the face inside is very dear, I can tell. roxanne


been hanging out here enjoying every little detail, always makes me happy. LOVE the studio tour on your website!


Nice Steph, very nice. Love that red touch. Guess what?? I'm making little clay skulls and hearts, tee hee. What a copycat am I?? Well....it's fun. Have a great weekend. I know it's only Thursday but gonna get busy this rest of the week.Love the hand. Take care, beautiful work.


Love the vignette...but especially the hand.

A Year of Gratitude

  • A Year of Gratitude
    2016 is a potent year for me...sweet '16, it is my 60th year and since I made the decision to keep this blog going for at least another year I am going to use this as a daily gratitude practice. If you choose to visit and perhaps leave a comment I am grateful for that too.
