I created this image near the beginning of when I began to explore art through the world of mixed media and collage several years ago…I had just completed an online painting/collage class offered by Paulette Insall,and discovered Kelly Rae Roberts through Stampington magazine. So, armed with a little knowledge and tons of inspiration, and head swimming through the constant creativity I find in Scripture, I was eager to tackle this first fully original project…as I sketched, the middle girl took on some semblance to my sweet tweener, and the girl on the right reminded me of her best friend. The woman on the left has a hairdo like the one I seem to always don, and so in some small ways, this became a “self-portrait”. The soft vintage colors can blend with most any decor. Since there were three girls, the scripture (which you can find handwritten along the borders of the painting) “a cord of three strands is not quickly broken” came to mind. And it is my prayer that we all continue in friendship through their years to adulthood and beyond. Do you have a relationship like this? Then you are blessed! Consider gifting this to your closest dear ones! They, too, will be blessed…

I have always been a collector of things. I remember gathering pretty pebbles in a baby food jar, chosen from a creek that ran through the farm I lived on as a girl. Mom poured water in the jar to help clean up those precious gems, and we placed it in the porch windowsill where we could admire the soft beauty of the stones...the jar remained there through that winter, the frigid temperatures causing the water in the jar froze, trapping tiny air bubbles amid the pebbles - the effect was beautiful. I've never outgrown the wonder of finding the surprise of beauty in the ordinary rhythms of life. For me, my art and my calling to help others are an extension of my passion for gathering together fragments and bits of beauty from around my world... And that is what I want to help you with. To discover the quiet beauty and remarkable peace that waits to be discovered in the ordinary, commonplace, collected moments that color the masterpiece that is your life! {In expressing ourselves creatively, we are inspired and inspire others!
