‘Lockets of LOVE’ by Debbie Arambula

What gifts life brings us each day, like little lockets of love, blessings that fill our day with joy, hope, happiness and even, occasionally, a realization or two.  A few days ago I had the pleasure of taking care of our grandbaby, Ruby Jane, and what a gift this was for my heart and soul. 

Funny Story: while changing her clothes, Ruby looked up at me and started this whole amazing 5 minute long conversation about a piece of my art that is sitting on her window sill.

OMG! It was beyond precious & I so wish I had a video camera. Honestly, it was 5 minutes long. Now keep in mind, she is only 3 ½ months old, if there is one thing I have always believed in with babies, that they are old souls and that they are aware of so much more than most give them credit for.

Anyhow, she was looking at a little framed piece about 2 inches tall. She literally stared at the piece and told me all about how she loved it, and it was so pretty, and she wants one in her bedroom, and she can’t wait to paint with me and so on.

This was a very special moment with my granddaughter and I was instantly reminded of the preciousness of my own children. Needless to say, my heart filled with an overwhelming feeling of love for my own babies. Funny how grandbabies are like little gifts that keeps giving in so many ways and on so many levels.

But here is the funny thing. She just went on an on staring at the art and telling me all about it for 5 long minutes. I was shocked to see this baby 3 ½ months old be affected by one little piece of art. SILLY ME. This is exactly what people tell me all the time and I just take it for granted!  Every time I paint, I have you in mind. I am not sure if other artists paint this way, but for me, it is that little girl inside, wanting to make you smile, laugh, feel better, be happy. And when I saw this effect on my own granddaughter, it hit me like an arrow straight to my heart. 

For weeks now, I have been hiding one of my new paintings from the public eye, and honestly, I have been a bit tormented on releasing it. I am SO IN LOVE WITH THIS PIECE, just like Ruby Jane was when she was staring at the piece.

Honestly, I wasn’t even sure I wanted to sell the original, but then, unwittingly Ruby came to your defense. She helped me realize that ‘Lockets of LOVE’ is one of those magical pieces that would be the perfect VALENTINE GIFT. Such a perfect gift for a mother, daughter, granddaughter, grandmother, a couple in love with a huge family. It is the perfect celebration of Love.

 ‘Lockets of LOVE’ is about family connections, friend connections and how they drip into your heart like a garden of flowers, ‘Spreading LOVE’. A perfect inspiration piece for what I call the Year of Love, 2014!

‘Lockets of LOVE’ was inspired by the unlimited capacity to fill our days, and others, with pleasure, good thoughts, wishes, positivity… Now, I am not talking with a Pollyanna-type attitude. No, that’s wishy-washy. I am talking about the simplicities of spreading love in a smile, good manners, setting a good example, being kind, helpful… Just look at this painting. How does it make you feel? What’s it saying to you, your heart? 

Possibly your own story lies in this painting. And if the art can inspire a 3 ½ month old baby to talk about the art for 5 minutes, well need I say more?

I am just the muse. My dream is simple: To inspire you every day, through my art, to pick up the paint brush of your life energy and create a masterpiece. To never lose your dreams, to love yourself more than you did yesterday, to find pleasure & happiness in the simple things in life, and to find the humor in the challenges called Life. We are in this life together, otherwise we wouldn’t have connected. Thank you for being a part of my life. You have no idea how you inspire me!
