Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. ~ 1 Peter 4:10

Vertu: An Art Exhibit

I'm super excited to share that two of my mixed media paintings were selected to be in a juried gallery show.  This is my first juried show!  I took the leap of faith and decided to go for it; the worst that could happen would be that they said "no thanks".  I'm so honored that my pieces were chosen and my work will be shown along side such amazing local artists!  The Artists' Reception is July 9th and I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to share!!  If you are in the Dallas area, my work will be up throughout the month of July at the Artists' Showplace.

More Gut Art

Here is another journal page from my Gut Art Book.  It was inspired by the artist Terri Hallman using Mystele's pulled art technique.  She is a bit different for me, but I loved creating her! The words at the side are a journaling list of all the things I love and that inspired me about Terri's work.  That is the cool thing about the Gut Art Class; it pushed me to look deeply at what draws me to other artists, artwork, imagery, etc.  I want to keep pushing myself to notice these things and then explore them more in my own artwork.

This little gal was inspired by my daughter.  Just a quick, blonde blue eyed girly. 

Here are some more background pages in my book just waiting to be explored further:

Super fun working in my Gut Art Book.  I'm looking forward to spending some more time with it!  By the way, Mystele is currently taking registrations for her 3rd Gut Art Class.  I highly recommend it!! :)
