Mixed Media Monday - Personal Symbol

Diana Evans - Illustration & Design

This week over at MMM the theme is Personal Symbol....and I just had to add my Sun and Moon...this piece is in my logo and all over my business...why? you ask....it is the first piece I did that started my whole career change....and every time I see this piece it reminds me of my journey to doing work I love ....I also titled this piece...opposites attract......deeper symbolism for me...

When I started my Illustration and Design company....I had no idea how wonderful it would be to do something that I love and how perfect it is to feed my heart and soul daily ...

so here it is...my personal symbol.....perfect for this week's theme....

it also reminds me daily that dreams do come true...you just have to believe....and everyone needs some sunshine once and a while...and I like mine daily.....

What a wonderfully inspirational post Diana - a reminder to us all to have a bit of faith in ourselves and to put some passion and commitment into what we want to achieve for ourselves. As a personal symbol for you it seems a perfect choice. Thanks for sharing this.

I can see how this fills your heart with so many different joys. I just love it and the description of how it makes you feel. After all that is what our art is all about :)

Hi Diana! I was eager to see what you did this week and of course, it is just perfect! I love your illustration and the fact that it has so much meaning . . .

I love this image if yours SO much. In fact, perhaps you should make it a "follow me" button and we could all add it to our blogs! What a bright bloggy world it would be! **kisskiss** Deb

I should have known that the sun would be your choice, oh sunny one! Sometimes I am unable to view the images on your blog(for some odd reason), but today I was blessed. About fiveor six years ago, I drew the sun as a gift for my OWN son, the first image I'd drawn in many years. After that I felt reborn as an artist and started painting and drawing again afte a very long self-imposed hiatus. Seeing your illustration today reminds me of how lucky I am to be able to express myself through art and how lucky I am to be able to connect with such wonderful people on like, like you!

Hi Diana,

It was great to catch up with you and to see all that you have been doing.
I love your symbol, always such a lovely combination.
I love the clocks and watches that have the moon and sun too.

Have a happy week
Hugs
Carolyn
