My Friends, Please Use This Stamp! :)

Dear all,

This is Karen, Anna's daughter.

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you mum passed away on Tuesday 5th January at 9pm. She deteriorated very rapidly and we are all very shocked by what has happened. Before she went, she asked me to update you all, as she loved her time on this site and in her conversations with you. Mum was unable to interact with people in person for many years, due to poor health, and her time on this forum gave her the friendship and interest that she needed to live her life in a more fulfilled and less isolated way. For this I also want to thank you all!

In the final weeks of her life she was at utter peace that she was going to be with the Lord and so I try to celebrate the freedom she now has, without the limitations set by her physical body. This is difficult, as I miss her and my father grieves deeply for her too. Whilst contemplating my mum prayerfully and tearfully, the Lord gave me a poem that I managed to share with mum before she left and that I want to share with all of you in her memory.

Gracious Victorious Follower of Christ

meaning 'people's victory' Anna meaning 'grace' or 'favour' Kirsteen meaning 'follower of Christ'

What a name you mother, my Jewish lady..gracious, victorious follower of Christ. What more can be said?

In your turmoil you turned to Jesus and in thoughts of your passing you attested to His greatness and His grace. "He held my hand" you testified as you lay dying.. Oh gracious, victorious follower of Christ!

In your successes in music and art, you gave testament of His love.. oh gracious, victorious follower of Christ!

And now in death you feel His life and you testify of His peace.. oh gracious, victorious follower of Christ!

His love you accepted, His love you shared, His love you lived for and in His love you lay at peace.. oh gracious, victorious follower of Christ!

I know of His great love, and I know of His Grace, I know of his peace because of you..oh gracious, victorious follower of Christ!

My heart thanks you, my spirit rejoices, although I don't yet rejoice.. I will, because of you.. oh gracious, victorious follower of Christ!

Oh how He has loved you, oh how He has cared..through all you have been through He has been with you and will be forever..

Oh gracious, victorious follower of Christ!

Best wishes and blessings to you all
Karen x

Please don't give me any llama badges, I'm really not interested in them, and as for cake badges, well no, I'm trying to lose weight thank you, and those ones are rather tasteless in any case! :lol:
Also, NO TAGGING please!

Go On Then, Touch Me! by AnnaKirsten


Anna Kirsten are my two middle names, which I chose a long time ago to use as a nom de plume under which any writings or artwork done by me would go.

I spend quite a fair bit of my time here on dA, and enjoy promoting other people's art whenever I can. My two main areas of interest in art are Fractal Art and photography, including a keen interest in macro/close-up photography.

Unfortunately years of chronic illness reduced my ability to carry out anything much in the way of physical activity, and so I turned back to art several years ago, this time on the computer as it's clean and doesn't clutter the place up!

My speciality, developed over several years, is that of creating Fractal Fantasy Scenes in Ultra Fractal. These are intricate and challenging to do, and keep me focussed whilst at the same time enabling me to express something of the spiritual side of myself.

I am a Bible believing Christian, but I have to admit to having a more open mind than many of my brethren on certain issues. For instance, I believe God is bigger than even our enlightened understanding, and that whilst choices have to be made where we are presented with them, if that opportunity has not been there for some, or people have not met the "right Jesus" in life, yet their heart is sincere and true, then they are not necessarily going to be condemned to an eternity of punishment. This would seem to drastically contradict the loving nature of God, who sent His Son to die on the Cross in order to save the whole world - not just some of it! (1 John 2:2 and other Scriptures bear this out.) Talk to me if you would like to know more about my Faith. I'm friendly, I don't believe in pushing my beliefs onto other people who aren't interested, but I am always happy to have amiable discussions with people.

If you're interested, you can see some of my testimonies on this page. Just scroll on down.

I also have a Blog HERE which focuses on the more Spiritual side of my life and who I am.



I thoroughly enjoy macro and close up photography of nature, flowers, bugs, droplets after the rain, and also butterflies in the summer. I have also enjoyed shooting scenery, but my efforts are very limited by terrible lack of energy and I cannot walk far at all, so I cannot access the best points from which to take good shots.

For those interested, the photography equipment I have in use is as follows:

* Sony Alpha A550 camera + Sony Alpha 18-250mm lens and Tamron f2 60mm macro lens + Sigma 105mm macro lens.
* Canon Powershot G11 + Raynox DCR 250mm macro conversion lens + several other closeup lenses for closeup and macro work.


My other passion is music. I play keyboards and flute and often play in a worship group. Back in and around 2000 I produced 5 CD's of instrumental music for meditation, composed and played by me and recorded in a studio my husband built for me in our home. Some of the tracks are available to listen to HERE

Dear Karen.
I am very sad to learn about the death of your mother. She was such a great artist and I am sure she will be missed by many friends in this forum.
My deepest congratulations to you and your family!
Thank you for your attention to my drawing Shepherd dog.
All the best to you.
Kindest regards.

Digital art is immortal

I've been absent from DA for a few months and only just saw this.  Anna, you were one of the nicest people I met on this site and I will miss your kind words and your beautiful images very much.  I know our Lord greeted you with "Well done my good and faithful servant" because in both life and in your passing, God received the glory.  

Till we meet on that beautiful shore, rest in His arms my friend.  :rose:
