Reflecting 2014

Ocean JewelsOcean Jewels – Print in Shop

End of a the year is a great time to reflect and look back at what we’ve accomplished, but also look forward to what dreams and plans are ahead. 2014 was a year of growth and growing pains. I’m thankful for what I’ve learned and accomplished but now I’m looking to what lies ahead and the plans I have to 2015. I’m excited to plan my goals for the next year. I love this verse, it will be at the top of my ‘to do’ list for 2015 “God can do anything, you know — far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!” Ephesians 3:20 (MSG)

Share a dream or plan you have for 2015? One of mine is to have my first art exhibition, that will be in March. Very excited about that, I will share more later.

Happy New Year blog friends, I wish you much joy and happiness for 2015, I hope all your wildest dreams come true!!

Flying Faith

Flying-Faith

 

Hi Everyone!! It’s been a while!! So happy to be posting again.

So I’ve been very busy building my new website and shop with a whole new look. I’ve been thinking and praying for a long time on where I want to be with my business. So I took a huge step of faith and decided to launch my own online shop selling what I love. In the past, you’ve mostly seen my children’s art but I have been painting abstracts for years, so I decided to offer them. ‘Flying Faith’ is first painting I did for the shop, and there’s a little story behind it…

I’ve been licensing my artwork for 5+ years but wanted to start sharing my abstracts because I truly love to paint. The painting was the first one for my shop so I called it ‘Step of Faith’. I paint in my garage because it has great light, I painted the first couple of layers and then let them dry, I returned to the garage and there was a hummingbird hovering right in front of the painting. I thought it was symbolic confirmation, so I changed the name to ‘Flying Faith’. This piece is a reflection of what happens when we step out in faith and the things we imagined comes into fruition. Just wanted to share that with you.

My shop will be launching very soon, like next week I hope. Just have to finalize everything. Have a happy Friday!!

Recently I’ve been busy with a project I have been working on and planning for months. It is something I have wanted to do for years and now I’m stepping out in faith to open my own online shop. I have an etsy shop but this will replace that with lots more goodies. I will tell you more about it soon. But here is a sneak peak to what will be coming. Have a great week!

Here is how you can help… Please take a moment to look at the project and please consider purchasing a pre-order Movie for a special child for Christmas. The pledges begin at one dollar. To order a full personalized HD movie uniquely produced for any child, the pledges begin at $30. You can also pledge to receive a kids personalized Christmas print illustrated by me.
