After some what of a break for the past year or so God has suddenly returned my inspiration and desire to paint. Without even revealing my decision to my friends or on my site in less than a week He sent several customers my way. Before I started on those a few things were laid on my heart to do first. Simple and full of beauty displaying His story one small piece at a time. I am humbled by the response of those who loved the pieces and I look forward to making them. I will be taking limited and scheduled future orders so as to continue home schooling and caring for my family.
I mean since we have pumpkin everything…why not? Although it’s been taken a bit far with the pumpkin spice deli meats and sausages. My stomach lurched a bit at that one. Who even eats that?!
6×6 Original Acrylic on Thick Canvas $25 each (two available)
I don’t get very much art done these days. My six year old on the other hand is constantly creating…keeping him out of my stuff is a full time job. Yesterday I decided I would create his own box of stuff he can safely use. We will see if that works!
My childhood friend Bobbie over at Bobbie Brown Photography is the friend who encouraged me to get started and has consistently has pushed me out of my comfort zone. Over the years of her requests giving me anxiety, biting my fingernails, thinking “I can’t do that, no way, I have no idea where to start!” (I never admitted that to her) getting started could take me a while…determined to push through my fears, I would finally put brush to paper. The hardest part! These days, getting started can take me a while for other reasons. I have overcome that fear and anxiety and have discovered the magic of trying. With anything in life, even when it feels paralyzing, when the voices in your head argue with you, Just. Try.
Maybe I will get around to posting before and after of our school room.

Life has been busy! Full of home school and all the many things it takes to care for three little ones under five.

This one is my largest painting to date, it is huge, it is full of love, dreams and forever. My sad photography skills fail me miserably here, it helps a lot to click on each photo. I could not capture the true color, the dreamy landscape or detail. A single piece of glitter lights up the big dipper to surprise you from certain angles. The moonlit early morning is full of promise, hope, peace and love. Dan I enjoyed piecing together all your favorite things for your lovely wife. I hope you both enjoy! Thank you!
