Happy Solstice! Merry Litha!


Sweep it behind
sweep it below
bind the past
and let it go
sweep the tide
of emotion through
and move forward
to what hope
waits for you.
The longest day
to renew
to make
a dream
for future times.
sweep away
the dusty tide
and move the flow
to renew
to bless
do not regress
you deserve
far more than that.
Love where you are at.
love who you are.

Merry Meet and Merry part.
Brightest Blessings with open heart.

Resurrecting Silent Wind Chimes

Wire Art- Resurrecting Silent Wind Chimes

Playing with wire, as I stated before,  is my way of relaxing at times.

In two instances recently, I'd discovered old chimes that could not sing anymore.To me that is a travesty! Chimes are meant to sing! I love them.  They just needed a little loving, a bit of wire, and a clapper that will last a lifetime- the most beautiful sounding chimes now ring! Yay! Music to my ears!

With this second set, I revamped the entire chime, using only the tubes from an old one that was poorly designed- looked pretty but it did not ring at all.
My first attempt from scratch, a fantastic learning experience!  I'm not afraid to try!
 Hand sewn wind catcher, a rock for a clapper- they sing again.

They sometimes get crooked I'll admit-I most likely need to thread them a different way.... but they now sing with the wind- and that's just fine by me. :) Happy chimes again.

Playin with wire

Over the Weekend I played a bit with the wire again; came up with a bouncy kid, a sitter and a nosy, happy man...LOL. I play with the wire while my husband plays guitar - a way we both relax.

And finally I must contend with my jealous cat, who does not like to see the camera pointed at anything else besides himself- King Edward. Ha!

I still have to get the wire on to wood- but they are a fun way to pass the day without stress and worry.

Happy week everyone! - Janey

Trojan Horse

Breast Cancer's Trojan Horse

Breast Cancer Trojan Horse
Original Acrylic by Janey A. McKeever 

October 22, 2012

I was thinking about the whole breast cancer issue when I painted this- I was riled up and pissed off over political issues of that day  (Mitt Romney had said, "No one dies of breast cancer anymore") - so, I came up with this original. Then my hubby came out and said, "oh look, a horse!" .....LOL! So, I thought- 'perfect! the "Breast Cancer's Trojan Horse".'  ...and there it is...
