I love painting big, it always gives me a thrill to create something larger than life and this 6 foot by 5 foot piece is quite a statement. With over 300 Swarovski Crystals. It is a site to behold and commands the attention of anyone who sees it. There will be no prints made of this piece. When you own the original you will have the only one in the World.
Back Story: I started this piece before covid and then all hell broke loose.... Living in California we have had our fair share of misfortune this year and like most running from one end to another trying to figure out my way in these times has been a challenging to say the least.
I am use to traveling around to art shows all over the country and seeing all of you in person and hugging you. And you know how much I love to hug! This all stopped and I found it tough to paint.
And my life evolved around new adventures: Teaching art classes on zoom, cleaning closets, reorganizing areas of my home.... like the rest of the world these activities became the modus operandi.
As time moved on through these months all the important things in life became apparent to us all. And at the top of my list was LOVE, family, tolerance and helping others by inspiring hope, happiness, love through my art.
One day, I was taking a long country drive and it hit me like a an arrow to my heart, I had stopped PAINTING! WHAT ???? I said to myself, that is my job!
That day I decided to start painting every day. And I picked up a brush and energetically started working on this HUGE piece.The capacity to love your life stems from gratefulness and appreciation of all that we have around us.
This piece, born out an explosion of love for all the beauty life holds and all its twists and turns and all the deep appreciation we have for the simple things in life like hugging your family, visiting with friends and all the things we hold dear to us in gratefulness.
Filling & transforming your world with good energy is my entire purpose for painting. With a heart full of gratefulness, I present to you this original.
And from the bottom of my heart I Thank you for being a part of my life.
Your Heart Artist :)
