Welcome to my blog!
I want to begin by thanking each and every one of you for finding happiness and joy in my artwork. I started this journey almost three years ago and everyday since then, has been a new adventure. I feel that having a blog will give you a glimpse into my life as an artist. I absolutely love creating in my studio, but equally as much, I love the conversations that I have with you.
Today I thought I would share how I title my paintings. You'll notice that almost always my paintings are given a name. The majority of my paintings are female and I think of them as my daughters. When I was younger I always imagined life with my daughters. God choose to give my husband and I two very special boys instead. So my paintings are my daughters, and each of my daughters needs a name. I am drawn to "old-fashioned" names. My own sons are Luke and Lincoln. These classic names remind me of a simpler, more innocent time. I feel, these older names are like great vintage dresses - eternally beautiful and never go out of style. While I am creating in my studio a name usually comes to me, but if one hasn't I go to an online baby name database and find the perfect name. I often get suggestions from you as well, and I love hearing them! You'll be happy to know that I record them all in my art journal and come back to them often.
Have a lovely day and keep sharing your beautiful names with me!
