Bright and Lovely and Good: Children

Monarch butterfly in orange, brown colours

Life is Art.

Art is Life.

Children symbolise and convey all that is beauty,  all that is goodness, all that is loveliness in Life.

The innocence of a child is beautiful.

It is a gift.  It is precious.

It is not to be…. squandered.

Children, Create the Future



Need to Celebrate Children.




Need to Protect them.



loving hands, with these hands,
Loving Hands




with these hands, love, touch, create,
With These Hands,  Protect Them.



Yes,  this post is my response to all that has been going on in the world.


We have failed to protect the children.

And I am ashamed.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

    1. thank you Jodi. the month of July was meant to be for the children. And, I’d just been thinking … silence… when seeing people get hurt, isn’t something I want to do. Amen! 🙂

  2. Beautiful post with beautiful images. Just a day or two ago I had my son in the studio, doing charcoal sketches with me. I felt quite honoured to have him there, going all quiet as the charcoal spoke to him. Great post Debi!

      1. I just read a book about a 9 year (!!) old girl in Yemen that had been married against her will. That’s terrible, too. But the world is getting more and more aggressive, unfortunately.
