Again a wonderful thing, Sarah!
Thank you so much for sharing with us.
Have a wonderful weekend, Sarah! 🙂
Thank you, I’m glad you like it. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. 😀
I really like it! Thank you so much, Sarah! 🙂
Thank you. And thanks for posting Romania’s Eurovision entry video; I had a good dance in my chair. 🙂 I hope they do well.
Oh, I’m so glad to hear this, Sarah ! It is a very beautiful song! I love this song very very much! Paula and OVI sings exceptional! I hope to be appreciated at their true value. Worth it!
Thank you so much, Sarah, you appreciate the song! 🙂
Love it. When I look in the center first, it has a 3-D appearance. The center looks like a sunflower towering over the smaller flowers similar to wild violets. The smaller flowers are connected in a artful dance. You have a beautiful series going here. I can’t wait to see the next one. 😀
Thanks Colleen. I had a weird experience when I was drawing the central part. I wanted the kind of mathematical spiral pattern that you get with sunflower seedheads. I started drawing tiny circles in spiral patterns but it wasn’t working so I gave up. Then I started drawing diamonds around this and they magically produced the pattern I had wanted – I wasn’t trying at that point, it just happened all by itself. These “doodles” that I’ve been doing lately have been teaching me a huge amount about the power of letting go. 🙂
You’re definitely in the “flow” the sunflower looks like it rising out of the cosmos. Keep doodling — so much beauty and joy!
Thank you. 🙂 I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s a bit addictive!
These you do are incredible. So very beautiful. You are blessed with so much talent.
Thank you. 😀 I’m glad you like it.
Nice reading about you
Thanks for visiting my blog. Be in touch. Browse through the category sections, I feel you may find something of your interest.
Thank you. I’m a bit of a gardener so I enjoyed looking through your new blog. The photos are lovely.
Thank you and the info
how is it dear Sarah 🙂
It looks very complete yet concise, and informative but I wouldn’t read it verbatim unless I was interested in growing the plant in my own garden. I’m a visual person – the photos would be my primary interest.
Okay dear thank you very much dear 🙂
Your art is amazing. So exacting and beautiful. This is wonderful.
Thank you, I’m glad you like it. 🙂
balanced and calming 🙂
Thank you. 🙂
Wow! It has an appearance of Christianity, Celtic, Muslim, Sufi, etc. Did you a special tool to draw this?
Someone else commented on the Islamic look as well. 🙂
I laid out a pencil framework of concentric circles and radiating lines using a compass, a ruler and a protractor. Then I used a pen to draw whatever popped into my head, using the pencil marks to keep things symmetrical.
Compass, that’s it. I completely forgot about that.
I love your circle work.
Thank you, and I love your cycle work. 😉
We could end up going round and round.

SHARED FROM –OUR BLOGGER FRIEND SARAH— WHO HAS TALENT RUNNING OUT OF HER EARS— LOVE YA SARAH!!! TOTALLY ENJOYED!!!
Your work is so intricate Sarah! Do you use a spirograph for any of it?
You must spend hours doing it!!
It does indeed take hours Barbara but I enjoy it. No, I don’t use a spirograph. I haven’t seen one of those for decades. Are they still around?
We had some when our children were young, but haven’t seen them about for ages. My husband is like you and works in great detail, 3-6 months on one painting!
Does he find it meditative/calming?
Strong. Determined. Beautiful!
Thanks Ina. 🙂
Yes, in fact it’s his life and passion! Do you?
It’s like that most of the time for me but sometimes it can be frustrating. I’ve learned to walk away when it gets like that. Time for a break.
This is amazing, Sarah! How have you been?
Hi Matthew, thanks, I’ve been fine. Much the same as you really – too busy to do much blogging. 🙂
I hope your job pays well enough to compensate for the lack of creativity time…
Yes! That’s the one nice thing about it. The pay is good. But it’s going to take a while to adjust to the schedule.
I hope you’re not too busy! Hope you have time to relax.
That’s good. It would be miserable to have to do that for low pay.
As for me, it’s a good kind of busy. I’m spending a lot of time in the kitchen and also in the garden now that the weather has improved. I’m preparing a new veg plot and a place to plant an apple tree.
That sounds like fun! I imagine gardens are a lot of fun. How long will it take for the apple tree to get big and start producing apples?
I love gardening. Everyone should try it. There’s nothing like picking your own home-grown veg/fruit. 😀
I’m not sure about the apple tree; I’ve never planted one before. I’m going to buy one in a pot rather than bare-rooted so I think it should start producing a good crop in 3-4 years. That’s been my experience with fruit bushes anyway.
Interesting. I hope you get plenty of apples from it! 🙂 Well, I’m staying at a hotel right now, just for fun. I’ve been drawing and drinking coffee throughout the night. I’m about to jump in the pool now! 🙂
That sounds lovely! 🙂
Have a great time and enjoy your break.
Thanks! It’s good talking to you again, Sarah!
Ditto, Matthew. 🙂
