"I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. LIFE is art." quote from Pinterest
I do believe art is seeing things in a way that no one else does. Seeing how the background frames the foreground. Seeing the beauty among the mess. Seeing the broad color palette our God has so graciously given us on a daily basis.....
I have had a dream of selling t-shirts and opening my own studio for a while now. I have been holding tight to a couple of designs for t-shirts for over 6 months ... always not sure of how exactly to get something like that started. Recently, God has provided in some surprising ways for our family.... that is a whole story in and of itself....Because of God's provisions, we are able to think about making my dream more of a reality.
All that being said, I am now launching my first (hopefully of many) t-shirt designs and options. All of the proceeds made from these t-shirts will be going to the bigger part of my dream....
In January 2014, I will be - Lord Willing - opening a studio - which is my shop in my own backyard. My hopes are that I will be offering art classes to toddlers, homeschoolers, after-schoolers, and in the summers conduct several craft/art camps. No, my degree is not in art - but I do love art. And I do promise to teach your kids how to get messy, how sometimes drawing outside of the lines is fun, how to play with different mediums, paint on wood, brick, modpodge, and who knows what else. I also promise to teach God's word to them throughout each and every lesson. For it is God that has so graciously given me this gift and to HIM I give all the glory.
