Thank you all for the support and encouragement you have given me over the past year!
I enjoy sharing my creative endeavours with you and look forward to sharing many more!!
My amazingly generous sister treated me to an amazingly generous gift for my recent milestone birthday: an "anything-you-want-you-can-get" visit to my favourite art supply store, Curry's Artist Materials!!
This gift inspired me to gather materials that will enable me to explore a brand new (to me) medium that I can't wait to play with! I look forward to sharing my new adventures with you throughout the year, as God wills!
Well, I have found that I can't go to Curry's without walking down their 'Canvas Aisle'. So after getting my other supplies collected I made my way over to their aisle of canvasses. On this particular trip I was inspired by their little 4x6" canvasses and so I picked up a few....
I've also been inspired as of late by, wait for it... inspirational quotes and verses that are made into signs and wall hangings. I thought that these cute l'il canvasses would make for a l'il pop of color and inspiration for a bedside table, a counter top, or even the fridge door!
In celebration of today, my first blog-iversary I sat down and worked on two inspirational designs and I'm making them available for sale for $15 each. They are one-of-a-kind for two reasons: 1) If I did paint the same design it would end up nothing like the original, there's just no duplicating exact colours and/or individual brushstrokes and 2) I don't like making a design more than once - it's like trying to get your mind to dream the same dream it dreamed last night - even if you could, it would never be as inspiring as the original!
Here are the two designs:
"Reach For Your Dreams"
(acrylic, chalkboard-style, 4x6" wrapped canvas)
"Never Never Never Give Up"
(acrylic, 4x6" wrapped canvas)
If you are interested in either one let me know asap.
It will have to on a first come, first serve basis...
It has been a fun year, full of inspiration and blessings!
P.S. I still have two 4x6" canvasses left - if you have a inspiring quote
or a favourite short verse you would like me to paint - let me know!!
