woodburning tool on page 3 of 'war and peace'

here we are at 1-11-11... that's a lot of oneness...

i found an old copy of 'war and peace' for $1 at a library sale a couple of months ago - it lays open beautifully whether you're on page 7 or 700. i started reading it around the solstice and finished it a couple of weeks later. now i'm going to draw and burn my way through it...



  1. I spent that same period listening to the radio serial of War and Peace. A wonderful story. I look forward to seeing what you make of it :)

  2. I have never read or heard this classic so maybe soon I will find my own copy to read and employ. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  3. I read the book a couple of years ago with the moral support of my book group women, and remember a most beautiful scene of a sleigh ride in the winter moonlight. Happy mark-making, sus

  4. I thought of the date today and then of course I thought of you and wondered if you were doing art. Fun to see what you were up to. Numbers are fun. My birthday is a fun one 02.20.2011
    wishing you so much fun.

  5. Hi Lynne

    I take my hat off to you.....

    I have this book on my reading list but it keeps getting put to the bottom of the pile... One day perhaps, I like the idea of reading it with a book group like the lady above.

    I have a link for you, a ceramic artist working here in the UK. I think that you will enjoy seeing her work,


    As for Dick Blick..... The postage is very expensive, so I will keep on looking here in the UK, I have found Shiva oil sticks so far but no Casein paints.

  6. oneness indeed
    at 11:11 I was writing in my journal
    thinking about all of the portals
    I think I counted seven
    love what you have done here
    my woodburning tool
    now rests in peace

  7. Dear LH, I just got my pogo! Did I ever mention I have ADD? So will there be a demo video on how to use this contraption? I guess it might have been wiser if I had asked that question first! lol, with love, janine

  8. more oneness... methinks it will be a good year... can't wait to see your further burnings...xo

  9. Dear LH, After my post above I thought why not go to youtube and got the info I needed. I have to be shown how, I never could follow recipes either so there you go. Youtube was very helpful! Now I am going back a few posts to see what you said about removing the film. I'll let you know.

  10. What a great idea, Lynne- also great that you read it first!

  11. Wonderful...Great Read also..

  12. That is so cool!
    Don't you just love that perect date?

    Off to read more of you, my plan is to linger with my coffee!

    Ciao Bella!

  13. What fun to burn your way through the new year! Oneness... looking ahead to November - 11-1-11 ;-p

  14. I read this MANY years ago and it took me 2 years to really fread it. well l am dyslexic what do you expect!Hax loved it though. I have been burning paper and material too this year..so great minds think alike. Love your burning.xxlynda

  15. War & Peace, a classic. My parents went to the premier in NYC so many years ago. It was 9 hours long!

    Inspirational. Just do it. Wish my obligations didn't take so much out of me, that I would make art daily. I guess I should at least promise myself 5 minutes a day.:)
