My best friend once said, “I will see you on this side or the other”, to an elderly family member he thought my not make it until the next visit. This painting was inspired by the smiling spirits that are all around us as we live our lives. Generations of family and friends move back and forth adding to our dimension of experiences even when we are not consciously thinking of them. The connections we make are never lost and wait for us in the rhythms of daily life when we take a moment to notice them.
I use several layers of acrylic paint that gives the artwork depth and character with touches of metallic copper and gold acrylic that catches the light in a magical way.
This one-of-a-kind original piece is painted on 140 lb. heavyweight, acid free paper and is sold unframed, ready to be styled to fit your unique décor and aesthetics. I have found that my artwork looks stunning featured in an oversized frame resting upon a solid mat.

Please visit my website: saradijulio.com- Sara DiJulio’s paintings are vibrant and powerful—so imbued with color, passion and energy that her work—created on heavyweight watercolor paper—seems alive and in motion on the page. “I never know where the paint will lead me when I start, and the end is always a surprise.” Finding inspiration in the lush greenery and flower-filled gardens of the Pacific Northwest neighborhood she calls home, Sara works in a variety of mediums, including charcoal, oil pastels, acrylic, watercolor and metallics. “Painting is like life, taking you on unexpected turns and down different paths.” Before committing to painting full time, Sara utilized her artist’s eye and design talents in the commercial world, crafting a career in the development of fashion accessories, sports bags and designer luggage—an occupation that took her around the world and exposed her to a variety of cultures and customs—a background which clearly informs the captivating art she creates today. With the stated goal of “bringing joy to people’s lives through art,” the Seattle native and University of Oregon graduate follows a simple philosophy as she pursues her craft: “Be willing to take risks when you create.” “I think you have to be willing to take the risk of ruining what you’ve already put on the canvas—in order to make something truly special. Truly extraordinary.”
