Lighthouses are a great symbol of guidance to safety. I’ve attached two art prints I have created of lighthouses using entirely different approaches. On both, I added the same verse which I thought fit perfectly with a lighthouse. The verse refers to the “Light of Life”, which I think of as Love, Hope, Peace and Joy. We all seek that and find comfort in these feelings. With the Christmas Season upon us, especially this year, we definitely could use as much Love as we can muster for each other and the Hope that we will conquer this pandemic sooner rather than later. Peace and Joy we all seek in our everyday lives on a daily basis. All of this is within our ability as individuals and is one of the few things we can actually control on a daily basis.
This first print, I created the lighthouse in a very abstract matter.
The second print, I created using ink drawing to outline the lighthouse structure and then filled in the color with a watercolor/airbrush technique.
May your holiday season be filled with Love, Hope, Peace and Joy!
This week I’m featuring a series of art prints I created that were inspired by a project I took on for a kids room. The series is five prints of flamingos done in an abstract style. On each of the prints I added a word of inspiration. The series has a whimsical look to brighten the day and words of inspiration to guide our way.
I’m starting with “Family”. Family represents many things to each of us. It could mean your immediate biological family or an extended family or a work family or even the family of man. We are in this together as family from our individual households to the planet as a whole.
Next in line is “Peace”. Our faith and hope lead us to a feeling of peace. Live each moment “in the moment”. There is nothing but the current moment in our lives. The past is just that and the future has not happened.
Stay focused on the present moment and enjoy our next message “Love”. Love springs eternal and connects us to each other. Love celebrates the present moment and enriches our lives. Love for ourselves and love for each other.
Day in and day out each of us have so many things going on albeit it physically or mentally. It is usually what needs to get done or what do I need to accomplish today. It can be your mind racing about current issues in your life or stressing about the future….it’s a multitude of ongoing things. When I feel myself getting a bit overwhelmed, I remind myself to pause, take a deep breath and quiet my mind. I like to picture myself hiking one of my favorite trails in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest….the peace and quiet of the forest takes over…….
Love And Gratitude is an inspirational art print I created using inspirational thoughts as an overlay on an original art print of mine titled: Candy Cane Rose Bud. I created this wall art print using a subtle watercolor painting technique of a rose bud just opening up. This technique uses subtle brush strokes and soft colors creating a warm look.
