Warm Amidst Cold

This lady I imagine is walking through the snow in order to carry a hot meal to a family who may be sick or who may have a new baby. I admit, I did get help from Jo March of Little Women. I got on youtube and found the 1998 Little Women clip were Jo and her sisters carried food to a needy family so I could get a better idea of what it should look like.

This picture is made of: garlic peel, poinsettia, Japanese maple, poppy seed, bark, corn silk, bean strings, cotton and I'm not sure what her dress and bonnet are made of.


  1. oh, sarah!:-)

    she is beautiful!:-)...and she looks so kind-hearted!:-)

    thanks for letting us see!:-)


  2. I love the way her scarf makes it look like there is a bit of wind in the picture, too. It really looks like winter, and it really looks cold, but still the lady looks "Warm" as you said.
    I was wondering: do the ideas for your pictures just "come to you", or do you usually go around looking for inspiration?

  3. very pretty Sarah You are so talented! I love the scarf too.

  4. Thank you, ladies, for your nice comments. It was good hearing from you all.

    I think that my inspiration usually does "just come to me," but I do sometimes look for inspiration too. Sometimes we'll go somewhere, and I'll see a cat and start thinking, "if I were to make that cat, I'd use aucuba, pampas grass, a little maiden grass..."
