😊Happy Morning Friends, I decided to post a #throwbackthursday pic today. I’m not sure why, but feel like someone may need it, including me. So here goes. This painting was originally completed in July of 2014. I titled it “Hope”, 36”x 36x 1.5”. “Hope”, this hope was a promise that God has for me and my future. You see I’ve always know that I’m supposed to paint and create. For as long as I can remember I’ve desired to turn nothing into something, to embrace emotion and joy. After completing “Hope” I painted for friends and family odd pieces that they loved but never were truly what I felt I should be painting. It took me some bumps, u-turns, and stalls to get back in the right direction. In 2017, I committed to myself to keep going forward no matter what. Because of “Hope” I’ve been able to develop a style of painting and definitely a passion for painting flowers. More importantly I’ve met some absolutely wonderful and encouraging friends along the way! Thank You ! I Hope this brings you some Joy. Look how far you’ve come! .
