Arts and your heart

Did any of you ever heard about Albrecht Dürer?
Here is the story.
Once upon a time, there were a poor little family with 2 elder son who has a dream to be an artist. Both of them have a great talent but they don't have money to go to school and learn to be a professional artist. Both of them discuss how can they reach their dream. And finally it cames to a conclusion, one of them will work and the other will go to school and after one success, the other will take his turn and learn. Albrecht then go to school and Albert support his brother in financial.
Years goes by and Albrecht success, he earn money from his works and back to his family. When they gather together at dinner time, Albrecht look at his brother, Albert and says gently... "thank you brother, And now, Albert, blessed brother of mine, now it is your turn. Now you can go to Nuremberg to pursue your dream, and I will take care of you."
Albert look at Albrecht and tears fall down from his eyes... he hold his brother's hand and said... "No, brother. I cannot go to. It is too late for me. Look ... look what four years in the mines have done to my hands! The bones in every finger have been smashed at least once, and lately I have been suffering from arthritis so badly in my right hand that I cannot even hold a glass to return your toast, much less make delicate lines on parchment or canvas with a pen or a brush. No, brother ... for me it is too late."
Albrecht pour all his heart and love for his brother Albert who sacrifice his hands for him in to a piece of art.
the art is called "Praying Hands".


The picture of "Praying Hands" has bless so many people around the world, there's no words, no explanation, but it touch many hearts.

Sometimes there's a time when no words can explain our hearts, no words can express our hope, prayer, our dreams... but art can always express what we feel.
Scrapbooking is not only about capturing our daily memories, but we can also pour our heart into that.
Put your heart into your work of arts and they will tell you a story.

These are 2 of my LOs that describe all my hearts. One with the journaling, one none.
