It’s been a long time since I wrote something for my blog. Since March to be exact! Sorry!
I last posted about how I started painting as a new creative outlet since closing my clothing business. Well this new hobby has taken me to a whole new world these past several months!
I have spent my days painting, loving on my family, and keeping my house from falling apart. I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting this new adventure has been. I have been commissioned by countless people to paint custom artwork for them as well as selling my original paintings. I have painted people, churches, barns, houses, flowers, farm animals, dog and cat portraits and even someone’s chameleon!
Creating art isn’t the same as when I designed clothes. You only wear an article of clothing a handful of times, before throwing it out the next season. What I am creating now is so much more meaningful. Artwork touches the heart and can bring so much joy. It reminds us of the past, can help us hang on to the present and can push us forward into the future.

My favorite part of this new journey has been hearing WHY someone loves and relates to a piece of my work or WHY they want me to create a custom piece for them.
I am thankful for the Lord directing me in this new path and for the community embracing me and my new found passion. I have met so many wonderful people and have had doors open I didn’t know existed. More on that another time…
I’m grateful and thankful for this wonderful life.
