Year of Inspiration 110

Artwork #110

In case you just stumbled upon this recently, I am doing a 365 project where everyday for a year, I hand-letter a small piece of inspirational, faith related artwork. I then post them on my blog and on Facebook and anyone who wants it can have it! Just e-mail me with your address and I will send it to you for free. So, if you like this one, or browse down and see which others are still available, just let me know!

Yearof Inspiration 109

Artwork #109  

This seemed appropriate today as I get my 20 year old ready to spend a month in Italy for an architecture class. He leaves this evening and I'm praying, anyway, for protection and for an
SAFE flight with EASY connections.

Year of Inspiration 108

Artwork #108

I think I should have this posted everywhere in my house. My 20 year old is leaving tomorrow for  a month in Italy and although I am happy for him, I do worry about his safety and, well, everything....

I painted some new paste paper backgrounds yesterday and even reused the backs of some old ones I just wasn't using. So now, I have about 70 new pieces to choose from and I am excited about that! It'll be nice to have alot of choices, especially when I take them on my trip....coming soon:)

Year of Inspiration 96-98

From top: #96, 97 & 98

Went on a little trip this past weekend to be with a couple of my boys for Mother's Day, and forgot to take my art supplies along so that I could continue my 365 project! So, on Saturday, I posted the photo on Facebook in place of one, but today added the lettering. Then this morning, also did Sunday and Monday's installments. I know that I want to try to continue these when we take our trip to Europe, and was planning on taking supplies...but it slipped my mind on this short trip:) I'm hoping that I will be able to find the time in Venice, Provence and Paris, but I know how I am on vacation....want to see it all. This time, though, we are wanting to be a little more laid back about it.

I just love the colors in this one. One of the new pieces of paper that I cut up...but it was a small piece so there aren't many to use.

Year of Inspiraton 89

Artwork #89

I was getting kind of tired of the same old stock of backgrounds to use, so I rooted through my files for some more painted paper to cut up. Sometimes it is hard to cut up a nice piece, but at least this way they are getting used:) As always, this is free for the asking....

Year of Inspiration 10

Day 9, Artwork #10

Happy Valentine's Day! I chose this saying because of Valentine's day. I'm sure there are people with broken hearts out there today who could use some reassurance that they do heal, and your faith can help with that! These are lyrics from a song...and I should have paid closer attention to the artist, but I didn't so if anyone know this song, let me know!

Yesterday's posting on Facebook was snatched up within 3 minutes...actually had 2 people want it at almost the exact same time. That was kind of fun, I just hope the one who didn't get it will find another that she likes soon!

Year of Inspiration 27

Artwork #27

This saying is loosely based on Romans 5:8...kind of like the way it is worded. Hopefully, someone else will like it too! Cut up some more paste paper today, so will be having fun using new colors etc. Still feel like I need to make some brighter colors with more texture. Someday soon maybe!

Year of Inspiration 88

Artwork #88

I've always liked this saying:) Wish it were possible... Another rainy day in St. Louis..I know it is spring but this is getting ridiculous! Having furniture delivered today--wouldn't want that job in the rain...I don't even like going out in it.

Had a very thoughtful friend anonymously leave a cute cone of flowers hanging on my chair on my front porch yesterday in celebration of May Day. I didn't actually see it til this morning, but it made my day! Wish I knew who to thank!

Year of Inspiration 86

Artwork #86

Had to do this one over because I left out a letter! Better now, than after I had notecards printed like was pointed out to me this week. Never even saw that I had repeated the word "the" on one of my past pieces:(
