Hey all! It has been a while since I posted some pictures of recent paintings. I took six more paintings into the coffee shop today! (https://mylifewithnf2.com/2012/04/13/friday-the-13th/). They will be on display starting next week. I am really excited about the extra time to display my artwork. I painted some summer theme sets, but decided I am not going to show the pictures on here yet…I will 😀 just not yet. Here are the ones from the past month that have been on display for a few weeks.
Blooming Bird of Paradise
Polka dot Poppies
Do you have a favorite? Or any you don’t like? I am trying to keep my abstract style but use different techniques and themes to broaden my horizons. (My dad would be proud of me for saying that phrase.) 🙂 Let me know what you think. Sometimes I feel stuck in a rut–like in a certain style or brush stroke or colors and so it is nice to hear some different ideas.
I have a lot to think about and sort out regarding my paintings…now being for sale and all. When I first started, I was painting for friends and family. The thought of selling my paintings made me feel like taking profit for the gifts God has clearly given me. Kind of made me have this weird feeling when I thought about it, so I just pushed it off. Then God started opening doors.
I want to use my paintings to not only encourage others with my story, but also with giving back to non-profits I support. If you could keep me in your prayers as to what areas God wants me to give back to, I would appreciate it.
This is the start of a whole new chapter in my paintings. I am nervous and excited. Nervous that I will start to ridicule myself instead of painting with passion. Excited to share my paintings and story with more people…getting out of my comfort zone. Excited to give back because God has blessed me with so much.
