Noelle Horsfield, Today's Guest Blogger

Noelle Horsfield


Thank you to Susan for asking me to write a guest posting for “Writing Straight from the Heart.” I truly appreciate the opportunity and hope that I don’t disappoint all her devoted followers! 

First, let me tell you a little bit about my work in general. I create lovely cut paper collages using a wonderful palette of papers in a myriad of colors, textures, and patterns. I am interested in presenting my viewer with images that both celebrate our unique diversity and unite us in our humanity. I approach each new subject as an exciting opportunity to unite these beautiful colors, patterns and textures with my own sense of wonder at the world, creating a meaningful piece of art that will delight and inspire my audience.

For this particular collage, entitled “The Littlest Birds Have the Bravest Hearts,” I wanted to celebrate the idea that those who seem to be the weakest are actually the ones who, when called upon to do so, are able to make the bravest choices, beat the steepest odds, and overcome the greatest hardships.

When asked to choose someone or something that represents bravery, most people would probably opt for a classic example of a noble beast like a lion or a heroic soldier or firefighter…all wonderful examples of brave and fearless individuals.

However, I am always inspired by those beings among us, be they humans, animals, or even the odd flower blooming and growing in a sidewalk crack, that are able to survive and even thrive in the face of adversity.

In short, I believe that, because of what is often required of them, the “Littlest Birds” really do have the bravest hearts.

NOTE FROM SUSAN:  Many thanks, Noelle, for being today's guest blogger.  I hope all readers will check out Noelle's website, read her blog, and look at her wonderful art at http://www.noellehorsfield.com/

Hi Susan -- Thanks to Noelle for this guest posting. Love the sweet paper collage and will be winging my way to her blog for a peak. So true that those who suffer or face the most adversity are the ones who in the end, perservere and make it through all the chaos. Best wishes to you both, Tammy

What a wise and true sentence. I immediately thought of the daughter-in-law of a friend, who was pregnant and had her baby prematurely three weeks ago. They were told to be prepared for the worst. But the little one, so fragile and new to this world, fought and today is at home, still under care, but willing to make it. Aren't babies just amazing?!
Wonderful post Noelle! and really pretty collage.

Hey Susan, Dazzle Rag is what Kathy and her friend, Susan, came up with when they sold them at bazaars last year. It's a scarf made from bits and pieces of material and yarn. Pretty funky! Kathy is always making fabulous things and has a very creative mind. :) Hope you are having a great day. Tammy

Hi Susan,
So nice to meet you and Noelle. Thanks for visiting me recently. I'm trying to find more info on my chair you asked about. I bought it about 5 years ago and can't remember the brand and price.
When I get back from my trip I'll be able to visit with you longer.

Susan said...

Our little dog - ten pounds - is a rescue dog - he thinks he is tough enough to fight any size dog!

That is so true.
