...hopeful folk art for children 

and the people who love them

Coming soon to my ETSY shop 
~ authentic giclee prints of my newest painting series 

I created a series of acrylic on canvas folk art paintings - on which I have applied wise words from wise men: John Calvin (French Theologian and pastor during the Reformation, 10 July 1509 – 27 May 1564) , GK Chesterton (English writer, Christian apologist, 29 May 1874 – 14 June 1936), CH Spurgeon (British Particular Baptist preacher, 19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892), William Gurnall (English author and clergyman, 1617 – 12 October 1679), and John Newton (British sailor and Anglican clergyman, writer of "Amazing Grace", 24 July 1725 – 21 December 1807).

What is an authentic GICLEE? I offer a limited number of fine art reproductions labeled "Giclee" in my etsy shop. These are NOT home-printer reproductions! These are professionally printed on a commercial printer by an authorized Epson Giclee master and are printed to heirloom/museum/archival standards on highest quality archival artist paper. They are brighter and more vivid than even the best home prints could ever be and they are, dare I say, better than the originals in intensity and saturation! When I use the term "Giclee" in my shop - I mean it. (Watermarks do not appear on final giclee prints). Each giclee is signed and dated.

I will be placing my Giclee order soon. I will be offering 8x10's and perhaps something close to 5x7. Additionally, there may be a series of blank greeting cards and Artist Trading Cards! I am currently working on 5 more paintings in this same style (owls and cats) - which may or may not have text... Decisions! Decisions!

YOU are such an incredible inspiration. I've said this before, and I'll say it again! I'm so fortunate and happy that I met you years ago, via eBay, and now we remain friends at Facebook.

Amazing what He puts before us, if we (I) would just be quiet and listen to him and follow his plan and not try to run the show ourselves (myself).

When I visit your lovely home here on the internet, (which I long ago saved as one of my favorites), I get such a peaceful and hopeful feeling. Not only does your art make me smile, it makes me feel so good inside because it's always so genuine and inspirational.

You've been through life's joys and sorrows, as we all have, and through it all, you've always maintained your faith, hope and love.

Your strength of character, your unending endeavors in acknowledging and submitting to that which is beyond this worldly realm as you continue to place Him before all, makes you such an incredible soul.

You are more resilient and yet more open hearted. Your kindness and inward beauty surpass everything that is typically known as beauty in this world, you have a beautiful heart and soul.

I never know when I'm going to write or what I'm going to say or who I'm going to write to, I've just let myself visit here today, I was led here for a reason. I think it's because I just wanted you to know that you have made a impression on me and I will continue to strive daily to be a person of more faith and gratitude, such as you!

Many Blessings to you in the new year!
