I’m trying to catch up here, so I’ve posted three images to start with. Which are completely different than my more recent art. The thing is, I’ve wanted to really make a difference with my art, which is why I created the Everyday Saints and Animal Saints series.
But. I lost the joy along the way, and it was starting to feel like a chore, a job… not the wonderful fun creative experience of creating art that I missed. My painting didn’t spark joy to use a Marie Kondo term, so I threw it out. Well, not literally. I still have the paintings.
But I decided that life’s too short, so screw it. I’m going to have fun painting. And this is what flowed out. And keeps flowing. So much so that I’m having trouble breaking away to do anything else, including posting these.
Oh, and I’m calling this series “Sparks of Joy.”
I’ll talk more about the technique and how I came about it in future posts, but for now I just wanted to get started catching up with sharing these.
They’re small, affordable, and perfect for small or intimate spaces. The 8″x8″ paintings are $128.00 and the 6″x6″ one is $96. Free Priority Mail shipping in the USA.
