~ Three Treasures ~ by ParaisaDesign ~ Three Treasures ~ by ParaisaDesign
I love the sayings of Lao Tzu - so I'm using this as a theme on a calendar series for the Ishayas website. This pic is May 2013.

Used my own model and textures plus unrestricted hair stock by [link] and others from dreamstime. Experimenting with a new style.

I'm very grateful to artists on DA who freely share their stock. It has really been a life saver for me since breaking my wrist. Thank you. :heart:

Your work is sort of breathtaking. Just...magnificent. I spent this morning browsing your gallery and I thought I should tell you that.

Wow, perfect! I love this. I love the simplicity of the saying yet it's so profound, and the depth of the image and the elements are wonderful and complimentary. I'm so impressed that you can mix styles so seamlessly -- something I need to work on.

And so sorry to hear about your broken wrist. I'm so very behind on everything and feel I've lost touch with everything. I hope all is well. :hug:

Wow - thanks. I would love to learn a few new things myself - like Vue and MD. ;)

Wrist is better - thanks Ryan. A friend just made me a bracelet of different crystals and it has helped a lot with the pain.

I love the words of Lao Tzu as well. My dad quoted many Lao Tzu sayings to me as I was growing up, as though Lao Tzu raised me as well. Beautiful work you did to express wonderful words.

Beautiful and wise, just like YOU! I really love the calm that I feel when I see this one. Maybe because it is a confirmation of things we strive for. TRULY treasures! Lao Tzu ....very wise ;-) :heart:

Hmmm wisdom. Sometimes I wonder at what cost is wisdom gained. Then I look into the eyes of children and it all makes sense. The utter innocence and unashamed beingness of a child. Like the eyes of the little girl who had arm supports made for her - those eyes! [link] (I think you or Kevin posted the video over on FB.) Thank you dear Vee. :heart::hug:

Thank you Bjorn. Definitely better. And how are you? Got snow yet? I've been watching the strange weather patterns over the UK - have you been getting any of that?

First snow came today :dance: It is mostly rain and it will probably melt away, but still. I love snow. It is a bit late for it and it has been unusually warm. What is going on over UK? Do they have strange weather too?

Apparently they are having tons of floods - a lurking low pressure system that has been swirling around for a while. I think it is mostly the south west that is affected.

Awww thanks Deb. You're very kind. No my wrist still hurts a lot unfortunately - but it's all relative. This time last year I was headed into surgery and having the worse pain of my life. So that is a good reality check for me. LOL. Good luck with your surgery on Monday. I hope it's not serious and that you heal up really fast.
