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.

To Forever Cherish
~~All children have special things that they cherish. It may be a teddy bear, baby doll, or a beloved blanket. These special "lovies" are dear to their hearts. They comfort in sickness and chase away the fears on dark, stormy nights.
~~As I was working on this piece I had another idea of its meaning.
This painting is about so much more than a teddy bear. It's about cherishing those special moments with our children.
Cherishing the memories of an ordinary day.
Because all too soon our little ones will be grown. The "lovies" will be displayed on a shelf or stored away in a box.
But the memories we make each day are the things that we will forever cherish.
