I designed this in my head as I was driving away from an appointment early Saturday morning. Like a vision...POOF! There she was...in my mind's eye. So I set to work creating her and what 'she' stood for. As I finished this piece, I was reminded of my own life...where I am, and how I have worked to arrive in this place. And the words which appear on the 'road signs' are true "destinations" for all of us. Trust, Balance, Love & Happiness. And this pretty lady empowers herself with bravery, freedom & strength . Thank you for liking Heartwork City. I hope you take a moment to tell me your story of hope, courage & joy. Because those are the things that HWC stands for. Always.
Don't Forget About Custom HWC Artwork!
If you're redecorating, moving into a new home or just need something INSPIRING to adorn your walls...don't hesitate to call or email me. I have successfully created more than 40 personalized paintings for a variety of projects (new home, new office, birthdays, wedding anniversaries, redecorated master suites and so much more)! Think about this: if you are heading somewhere to buy a painting...say Cost Plus World Market...you are going to spend anywhere from $50 - $300 for a piece of reproduced art that is likely already on your neighbor or your colleagues' wall. Wouldn't you rather spend that amount of money on a custom piece? YES! I can't wait to hear from you and start creating something amazing!! (805) 835-5991.
Custom Birthday Painting for a VERY sweet 10-year-old....Giddy 'UP!
YES! As many of you know...my brain works in magical and mysterious ways. I often dream about my paintings long before they're created. Well...welcome to my nocturnal wanderings!! This piece, entitled Butter-Horses (24 x 30 canvas), was inspired by a dream where sea-horses transformed into beautiful butterflies. Therefore...the Butter Horse. This mixed media piece was created to have a whimsical, child-like appeal. When I look at the rich & vibrant yellow and purple hues...I am reminded of a carnival or a circus. The extreme 'busy' nature of the piece calls forward a child's play: always moving, busy & imaginative. I hope you can lose yourself as you view Butter Horses and think about a time when you were able to play, create or just be... I look forward to seeing you at my Spring Show! Happening in April. Stay-tuned for location and time. And thanks for loving Heartwork City!
PS-To view ALL of Butter Horses...please head to the Gallery tab and click on Heartwork Canvases at the bottom...
