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 challenge to say the least.
The original painting has taken 8 months from start to finish. It is one of the largest paintings I have created to date. I love painting big, it always gives me a thrill to create something larger than life and this 6 feet by 5 foot piece is quite a statement. The original painting had over 1000 Swarovski Crystals it is a site to behold. When you own the original you will have the only one in the World.
I am used to traveling to art shows all over the country and seeing all of you in person and hugging you. This all stopped and I found it tough to paint.
And my life revolved 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 an arrow to my heart, I had stopped PAINTING! WHAT????, 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. Times like these can kick you off your purpose, your passion, your dreams! And I was NOT GOING TO LET THAT Happen!
The painting was 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.
