Let me Introduce: SixSisters






I am a
Daffodil


What Flower
Are You?




Thanks to Joan - (sixsisters.etsy.com) (http:/www.sixsistersiam3.blogspot.com/) she once again has us finding what makes us who we are. If you click on "What Flower are You?" you will find another side of your personality. A few months ago - we were identified by our very own Fairy (thanks to Joan) and now we are defined by the type of flower we are. Luckily, Joan and I both have similar personalities!




This is "Fidget" which was designed for me



This is Pearl's Fairy







Another one of Six's custom Fairy's


Of course, we cannot just define Joan by her flowers or fairies, her artwork in her shop truly reflects her inner personality. When one sees her paintings of little children or her fairies or the woman in the "Wind" (one of my favorites) one cannot help but smile, she brings out either the child fantasy in all of us, or a feeling experienced as we let our imaginations take us along with her through her drawings. As Joan says "they take you to a place of wonder and peace. A lot of her ideas come from childhood memories for fantasy's which she has brought forth from within to without.

Not all of Joan's work are these imaginative sketches, but if you go to her blog, you will find some beautiful photographs she has taken. As she says "I always see something different when I look up into the branches. Patterns and shapes. Colors. Lines bold and thin, crisscrossing each other, intersecting. I love looking at that and try to use it in some of my work." That is a vision of a true artist - one may look at a tree or the sky and see what is there, the artist always looks beyond that realm and brings forth the inner beauty for us to enjoy.

Thanks to Joan's blog: sixsistersian3.blogspot.com - I found this great flower research. First she started us on our Fairy type, now she is finding our flowers for us. Looks like Six and I have the same disposition!
