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

Inspiring Illustrator~P.J. Lynch

~~So today is cold, yucky and rainy outside. Call me crazy but I love these kind of days! It's the perfect day to stay in with a warm cup of coffee and paint, which is exactly what I've been doing. Savannah has been happily playing with legos and playdough and I'm working hard to get this cowboy finished.
~~This week at the library I picked up a book for the girls called "When Jessie Came Across the Sea." The first thing that drew me to it was the beautiful illustrations. This morning I finally took a few minutes to look up the illustrator and I'm so glad I did! The artist is a man named P.J. Lynch and he's been an illustrator of children's books for more than 2o years. I'm now going to be looking for more of his books. His work is beautiful; realistic but with a softness that makes it perfect for illustrations. I always love to share other artists and so I encourage you to check out his website here and also his blog.
~~Well, back to work for me!
Happy Friday everyone.

Hi Kasie

Illustrations often draw me to books as well. I often look at your atrwork, admiring it and thinking how perfect it would be in a children's book.

I hope you entered your cowboy piece plus some of your other artworks into the competition. It sounds like a great opportunity to showcase your talent and diversity.

I used your link to learn more about Akiane. Wow, what an inspirational young lady.

You and your girls looked absolutely gorgeous at your sisters wedding - stunning.

Hope you are having a beauty full day.

Lots of love and hugs
Elise
