God bless you and your family and friends during this dark time.
Artists - we must shine our light into the world!
Art has the power to heal, to help us express ourselves, to process, to focus on the joy in our lives despite the fear, the sadness, the isolation that we are all experiencing.
I thank God for my daughter, our pets, artmaking, gardening, home and creative projects during this time. I can be a resource to other artists who are struggling - please do not hesitate to contact me if you need to talk.
Let's do our best to focus on faith, not fear.
Times are uncertain, and we don't know how long it will be before we can return to some type of normalcy. Whatever the new "normal" will be. Embrace the quiet, the cleaner air. Stay safe in your home, and reach out to the loved ones in your lives. When the thought comes to you to contact someone and check in, do it right then. Their lives may depend on it. I have lost 2 friends in recent years to suicide. The mental health struggle right now is real. A few kind words and just knowing you are there and sending love and good thoughts- is invaluable during a dark and frightening time. Please reach out, and shine your light into the world. The world needs it. Shine your talent, share your voice, share your artwork, share the amazing person who YOU ARE! We are isolated but we are not alone. We are together in prayer, in our hearts, in our spirit, and we will continue to shine, through this darkness, and into the light once more.
GOD BLESS YOU!
Also, thank you all for your support! I am now exclusively working on my artwork, art sales, commissions/custom orders and online gallery. Stay tuned for more available works from our inventory and further updates to the website. All available works are also available as limited addition prints per request. We accept payment plans, and also donations for my artwork and the gallery, through Paypal and Venmo. Any amount can make a big difference and help us keep our lights on and the artwork happening. If you are interested in a painting and can only pay a little at a time, that is fine! We can figure it out, and I can ship the work to you once it and the shipping cost is paid in full. I am offering all of my works right now at "studio direct" prices - meaning my artist price, straight from the studio, 50% off of gallery retail price.
Stay tuned for new paintings here, on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram!
