Embarking on new things...getting out of our comfort zone

Hello again friends and family~
Just wanted to share with you some thoughts and inspiration I have acquired on doing the things we thought we couldn't...this is the first post on this, two more parts to come! The first thing I have to share is that is something that takes self confidence...that you can do anything you set out to do, if you really want it enough! For me, now, it is starting an art business, selling my art, and making a living on doing so! Lots of artists are doing it now...not so far fetched! It of course is something I have to work hard on! I am prepared to do so! More to come...
Peace, Tina

Check out my Etsy shop!

Happy Monday!

Hello friends and family~
I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! Lots of prayers go out to all affected by the hurricane! I hope that you had some time for some creativity and some art in some form! I really try to make a point to everyday, even if it is some small sketch or something! Can be a spiritual process too! Well, this is short and sweet today, will post more later perhaps and for sure this week! God bless you!
Peace and love,
        Tina

Art brings hope and comfort...

Hi there dear friends and family~
It always amazes me every time I do art how much heart one puts into their work. I mean, that is what it is all about...often times it is also cathartic. Truly when I paint, I put so much thought into it, so much of myself. It is almost like a journal entry with paint on canvas bringing comfort, peace and hope. That is also what I hope my paintings give to the viewer. This is my desire. It is a beautiful thing to share oneself with another, possibly bringing comfort, kindness and compassion to another person. Art is to give. Art is not only for ourselves I have fully realized. This is why I do what I do. I am in school for Art Therapy. I do not just want a degree, I want these tools in order to help others, giving them some peace, hope and comfort that I believe God has called me to do. To be His instrument, through my paintbrush to transmit His love, peace, hope and comfort to others. I hope I can do this the way in which He wills me to. His little servant (and painter.) May God bless you with love, kindess, gentleness, hope and peace. To Him be the glory!
Your friend,
    Tina

Finding hope with art

Hello friends and family~
I am a believer that God gave us art as a gift...a means of expressing oneself. It also is something to be shared with others, not to keep to oneself! That is my intention with my artwork. I want to share it, not keep it under the bushel basket! I hope that my art brings a sense of hope and peace. The artwork that I do is from my heart, my thoughts, my ideals, morals and values. I want it to reveal these things and to make the viewer smile. I enjoy all types and styles of art, and I am working on my own style that I will carry on with. I will keep you posted on things, and please stop by again! Thank you for visiting! Peace, Tina

Working on getting my art business off the ground...

Hello friends and family...
Well, I knew it wouldn't be easy, but I am diligently working on my art business. I am wanting to be a full time artist, along with finishing school and so on. I offer handmade original art, prints, and other artful objects as well as mural paintings for the home. It has been interesting trying the to perform the balancing act of starting a business, having a job, soon to start school and everything in between! Brad is so supportive of me and my art, my biggest fan he is! I want to share my art with others, in the hopes of bringing some happiness, peace and joy to the viewer. I feel a calling to this. Art shares ourselves with others too! Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I hope you are having a wonderful day! God bless and peace to you!
