DaySpring selected 9 paintings of mine to offer in their online store!! :-) Yay!! They're gallery-wrapped canvases in a terrific 18x22" size!
Refresh Your Spirit is one of my personal favorites. This photo was taken in my art studio. I love happy art and this one captures a lot about me – my favorite colors, a cool lemon and who doesn't love a striped straw! :-) My spirit is refreshed just looking at it and I hope it evokes similar feelings for you!
Ever since I was a teenager perusing home design magazines, I've always been drawn to rooms that are clean and bright with a touch of vintage thrown in. A fun, retro sign hung over a sofa or the breakfast table always made the perfect design statement.
But what about the message? It's so important to have God's Word visible in our homes –why not make it meaningful and stylish? I'm inspired by the passage in Deuteronomy 6 "these words which I command you today shall be in your heart ... write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." Surrounding ourselves and our family with His Truths can help instill them in our hearts.
Expressing our faith throughout our home is central to my work – in the art I paint, products I design, the ideas in my book, and in this Inspiring Ideas blog. My work is about meaningful style. Putting God's Word in our heart is easier to do if we see it often, right? We can influence a life for the better through our home decorating!
My art combines uplifting scripture with that classic vintage style that goes anywhere. To create the look of retro signs I paint a background of multiple layers of color on wood panels. Then design art and type based on a Bible verse or uplifting phrase that speaks to me. I put each piece through an aging process to give it an authentic finish.
DaySpring.com is reproducing a selection of my works in 18x22 gallery wrapped canvas. The art flows around the sides and they are such nicely crafted wall pieces! I love the wrapped canvas style that fits with any decor and the corners are tucked to perfection. I know you'll be so pleased with DaySpring's quality! They put so much labor into these American-made canvases and still they're so affordable!
