About Me

My photo

I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a best friend a daughter, and artist.

If there was a way I could spend as much time in my studio creating as I do working my regular 40 hour job I would do it in a heartbeat. I am loving discovering myself through art and I can't wait to see where the journey takes me.

Hope

Good morning beautifuls!!!!

Man I spent all day in my studio yesterday...working on my design team project for Art Anthology, which I can't wait to show you Wednesday...love it when I can just create all day...

Took a little break then went in and grabbed this piece of canvas that was staring at me....
A lot of people I love and care about on my mind so much lately.

My mother in law, who just had lung cancer surgery this past week and is home recovering...we are all hoping they found no other cancer and she won't have any kind of chemo therapy to go through.

My friend Patty who is going through chemo...beautiful beautiful lady who I care so much about...

Another friend having financial difficulty...I mean I could go on and on...

One thing I have found, in all that I myself have been through in my life so far, is that you have to have HOPE...it truly is a major player in our journey here on this earth...

So I grabbed my heavy modeling paste and a couple of stencils and just started applying it to the piece of canvas...

Then I got out my Art Anthology Colorations Sprays and added some beautiful color...

I used foam stamps to stamp HOPE into the modeling paste to give some different dimension, then used some smaller stamps for the other words.

This piece didn't take me very long, it just flowed right out of me so naturally and I love it when that happens....

So...just remember, no matter what you are going through, you gotta always have HOPE....HOPE IS YOUR JOURNEY...





















Sending all of you love and HOPE....
