Spread #80- In 2010… December 31, 2009

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

…I wish to live as though I am a visual journal

…for my days to be as the pages in it

….abundant, colorful, rich, accepting, forgiving, open, mindful, explorative, contemplative, introspective, involved, engaged, inspiring, potent, layered, vibrant, gentle, lively, light, humorous, playful, knotless, freeing.

…I wish you too, to live as though you are a visual journal.

Happy New Year dear Orly.

I am wishing you and your beautiful family the best in 2010. In many ways I am so happy to see the last of 2009. Although our Domenic was born then.

To us and our dreams and for peace.

Love Renee xoxoxo

Hi Orly,
I just found your blog when clicking through from some other website and I want to tell you how much I like your work. I like the no-holds-barred color, the shapes, the references, the abstraction, how you use line… well, all of it. I’m glad you’ve chosen to blog, to share your art life with others, friends and strangers, alike.

What an amazing thought. Yes, I want to take that for myself as well – to be a visual journal… what a fantastic way to think about one’s life, thank you!
I wish you an amazing year, Orly, a year of being a rich and colourful visual journal, a feast for everyone around you!

I want to be a visual journal too! I want to soak it all in…images, words, color…meaning, texture…all of it! What a nice reminder to do that for a new year…a new decade!
I always know that I can come here, to your words and images, to be inspired!
Enjoy the day, week, month, year…Orly my friend!

Happy Happy New Year, Orly!!!!!!!!


20. Marci - January 10, 2010

This is beautiful thought. Happy New Year!!

21. Ronda Hillis - January 18, 2010

I absolutely love this thought. Your words are so inspiring to be transparent and open to this world that is so full of walls separating us from each other. We do need to be open if we are to help each other. So many feel they are on the path alone which is so not true. Thanks for reminding me to be an open visual book.

22. pam - February 17, 2010
