The final "One World, One Heart" event - 2011

Hello, and welcome to my blog! My name is Shariyah, and I am an artist, a wife (to the most amazing and might I add MOST deliciously handsome man in the world), & a mum to my little French Bulldog "Cash". This is the third year that I will have participated in Lisa Swiftka's "One World, One Heart" event, and I'm thrilled to once again be a part of such an incredible "blog party"! You can find out a bit more about this exciting event by clicking the photo below:
As a little "Thank you" for taking the time and visiting my blog, I will be giving away a special prize! A "drawing" will take place right here, on February 17th! I put a lot of thought into what prize I could offer this year, and after much contemplation I have decided to give away an ORIGINAL painting, inspired solely by this wonderful event.
My work usually consists of acrylics and mixed medias on wood or canvas, and my color palette tends to linger in the darker, rich tones. I am inspired by the old masters, as well as being deeply fascinated with the 19th century mexican folk artesanía. (and, in case you haven't noticed- Frida Kahlo!)
Watch my live speed-painting of this HERE!
Mixed medias on canvas. Size: 6 x 6" Depth: 1.5"
pimp myspace - Gickr

How can you win this painting? All you have to do is say "hello" (or whatever you wish, really!) in a comment below THIS POST. I will be using random.org to pick the lucky number, so the person who's comment falls on that number will be the winner! Please make sure that I will be able to contact you by either having an active blog, or leaving your contact details in your comment! Thank you :)
So I invite you to take a moment and look around, make yourself at home...I hope that you can find a thing or two here that may be of interest, or put a smile on your face :) I look forward to meeting each of you, and visiting your blogs as well... and I wish you all an incredible "One World, One Heart" journey!

Receive updates, and be the first to see my new work!

I am so happy and so delighted that you are again a part of OWOH. Your art inspires me beyond words as do you. I love the idea that you are doing a special piece and that we are able to see it evolve from those oh so talented hands of yours. You and your (pardon me) gorgeous husband have such a loving bond - no wonder you won the contest and it transcends in to your eyes in photos. Meeting you through this event is precisely the reason I began doing this event - there are so many wonderful souls to be found.
Enjoy the 'flight'.

I love where the work in progress is at right now. Funny, but a part of me wants it to stay at that most basic textural wonder and a part of me can't wait to see the finished product.

I love the WIP, the color is awesome!

AZviaTx said...

I couldn't take my eyes off the slideshow at end of the post. So many beautiful paintings, collages. The redheads are my faves! (Guess who has red hair?)
Lily & the Rose is very evocative. And...you are too young to remember Twiggy! That's during my time! But, I suppose she IS iconic! The WIP you are crafting is going to be just wonderful, since all the other art I've seen is proof of your talent. It will be interesting to see the developement. Stay warm, safe and creative, Tina

Hello from snowy Massachusetts. Shariyah, your blog is magical. I had to become a follower right away. I love the portrait at the top of your blog. She is wonderful. Cash is adorable and what a beautiful photo of you and your sisters. I work with clay to make ooak art dolls. I just recently began drawing. I am compelled to create. I'm sure you can relate. I love the art work you are giving away. If you have a chance, come visit me (I'm working on a Frida doll; she's one of my inspirations too). Blessings in the journey, Rebecca #393

Greetings from Ipswich, MA USA

Very nice to meet you. Please enter me in the OWOH drawing. My son just adopted a French Bulldog puppy. I had to laugh when he told me how he has to get up in the middle of the night to take him out - it's kind of like having a new baby!

I hope you have a chance to visit my blog, too. I'm offering a shabby chic denim necklace. And...please, come by again later so we can chat. :)
