The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

"Through Season's Change" ~Fluid Acrylic on watercolor canvas

"Through Season's Change"~ 20" x 16" Acrylic & watercolor on watercolor canvas~Copyright 2009 & Beyond~Kasie Sallee

~~This painting has been in my heart and on my mind for a long time. I actually took the reference photos at the end of 2008 and filed them away. After finishing up the little angel "Joy", I felt that it was finally time to work on this piece.
~~The special relationship shared between Daddy and daughter is truly a treasure. It's hard to put into words that bond between them. They say that a girl's first love is her Daddy and I do believe that it's true. I know that both of my girls are infatuated with my husband and he's been wrapped around their little fingers since day one.
~~I wanted to try and capture that relationship in a painting.
Though the season's of a girl's life will change, in her heart her Daddy will always be "her Prince."
And even as he watches other loves come into his little girl's life, the Daddy will always be there to protect, defend and comfort.
~~I'm not sure if you can tell, but the little girl in the painting is dressed up as a princess. She's wearing a pretty pink dress and crown. I can't help but to also be reminded of the relationship that we can have with our Heavenly Father. Even if you didn't have the best Father here on earth, you still have a "Daddy" in Heaven who wants to walk with you, hold your hand, and be your protector.
~~This was the last piece of 2009. I finished it up on New Year's Eve. I'm excited to begin a new year of painting!

This post is so heart warming. I have a daughter and she has her Daddy completely wrapped. She looks at him like a super hero and she is definitely his little princess. I absolutely love the painting!

Oh My Gosh! That is SO beautiful! What is fluid acrylic? Watered down acrylic? I wish I could paint. I do colored pencil and I love the control, but there is something so special about painting.

[b]Garmin карта топографическая Украины[/b]

Топографическая карта Украины содержит детальную топографическую информацию всей территории Украины в масштабе 1:100000 (в 1 см – 1 км) и планы 105 городов в масштабе 1:10000 (в 1 см – 100 м). Карта содержит:

* названия и границы всех населенных пунктов Украины;
* дорожную сеть, включающую шоссейные и грунтовые дороги, туристические тропы с функцией автопрокладки маршрута (в городах маршрут прокладывается с учетом существующих на сегодняшний день знаков ограничения дорожного движения (запрет поворотов, односторонне движение и пр.));
* железнодорожную сеть, гидрографию и растительность.
* Рельеф показан горизонталями с сечением 40 метров, отметками высот и "отмывкой" (отображение рельефа тенями), позволяющей более наглядно увидеть направление хребтов, склонов, долин рек и т.п.

Карта поддерживает поиск по названиям населенных пунктов и точкам интереса (POI), среди которых гостиницы, рестораны, кафе, магазины, заправочные станции, парковки, больницы, аптеки, памятники археологии и архитектуры, музеи, театры, кинотеатры, курорты и т.п.
