Celebration Of Life by udonchow

Oil Pastel And Acrylic (With minor digital enhancements)

Here’s Ophelia all dressed up for a party that she’s hosting! A party that celebrates all that life has to offer,both the good and not so good :D She’s wearing her new flower feather clips and a ribbon belt to adorn her waist. All who read this will be invited!

A belief that Life is to be celebrated, not just the ups but the downs too. It is easier to give thanks and rejoice when things go well for us but can we still do the same when things dont turn out the way we want them to? In dry or in bountiful times, I keep reminding myself to count my blessings…to adopt the mindset of abundance and not of scacity. In fact, everyday can be a celebration of life…just take a few moments..and you will find that you are “richer” than you think you are :D

    Ellen, BTW, your 2 calendars look really, really beautiful…..You’ve got to make more with every single painting of yours!!! Again, I’m very inspired by this painting & your heartwarming philosophy, and hope you have a fabulous Saturday!!!

  • I’m glad to know this one speaks to you in some ways :D I want to look all radiant and prepared for what life may offer or throw at my face….definitely not easy but will endeavor to live a life according to this:D. I will be doing one more calendar with my oil pastel works later…you have a great weekend too,Ujean!

    Ophelia looks so cute! I love her clips, this is so precious!! :D

  • Thanks J! Very precious to me too…so often we take the things and people around us for granted…if we slow down and take stock, we are more blessed than we know. I always believe that what we focus on and give energy to will grow…so positivity begets more positivity and vice versa :D
