The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

All that Matters

~~I thought I would share some beautiful artwork to brighten up this cold winter day!
Sierra drew this and I just love it. She says that it's Hawaii. There's a blue dog resting in a beach chair. In the water is a goldfish and a blue whale. She says the the boat is "the big ship" that we went on a couple of years ago. I just love her creative mind. She inspires me.
~~Today while riding in the car and listening to Air1, this song came on by Autumn Road called "All That Matters." I couldn't find a link to just the song itself but I did find the video. To be honest, the video is a bit kooky and silly so just listen to the words instead.

~~As I was driving along I heard two little voices behind me singing "All that matters is..." I truly hope that I can really help the girls learn the truth in those words, especially when they're teenagers and start to feel the pressure to "fit in."
~~And...I'll give you a glimpse of my work in progress. The skin is only just beginning to take shape and color. There will be quite a few more layers. This photo is a bit dark also. It's the best I could do on a cold, cloudy day. Now I have to finish it, lol. You guys will hold me to it. :)

**PS: I'm actually still working on the blog design. I haven't gotten all of my links back up yet.

Kasie, simply stunning!!! Doesn't look like you have that much more to go, as far as I'm concerned.

Really nice, a stunner!

Wow, that's looking wonderful! And Sierra's picture is cool and imaginative and unique in the "draw what you see" style than the canned "this is what an X looks like" that most kids do. Cool!

I can hardly believe how talented you are, girl! That is amazing. Those pieces are going to mean so much to your girls when they are grown.

And Sierra obviously takes after you. :)

Your new painting is looking wonderful so far!! And funny that you mentioned that song....I read this post on the day you originally posted this entry and later that day I got into the car (I listen to AirOne all the time) and "All That Matters" came on. I couldn't help but think of you and your little girls. So precious are they!! :) And I love, love, LOVE this song!!!
