Crafting Hands

This summer I have seen a few hands creating something beautiful for us to look at and admire. I have enjoyed watching the artist from China paint in ink drawings:

And I have seen my own hands create a bedspread for my bed:

Hands can create beautiful things and I enjoy watching them at work.

  1. Terrific post Colline. I love pictures of hands, especially people who’ve seen more years than me. The wrinkles in the hands are just as telling as the wrinkles of the face.


  2. You certainly have had a beautiful enjoyable Summer Colline.
    Great artisans and great crafts.
    I enjoyed the sidewalk artists that I witnessed in Chile, so young and so artistic.
