I love using little scraps of paper to add interest to a piece. It adds the element of the unexpected. I've been very prolific lately, in order to restock after good sale days. I think the economy is beginning to recover!
My daughter's high school graduation was last night. We had a ton of people and fun and love and food flowing through our house afterwards, so I thought this painting was appropriate. We are truly blessed and so very proud of our little Dixie Star. She's all grown up and heading off to Anderson University in the Fall.
I once read about a woman seeing a message sprawled on a Paris sidewalk. It said, "The city of Paris is full of beautiful mysteries, and you are one of them." I never forgot that story. I began to think how wonderful it would be to spread love and joy by writing beautiful messages on sidewalks with chalk. That idea has evolved into the original poetry I often include on my art, and is the reason I call myself “The Sidewalk Chalk Prophet.”
