Cherry Blossoms on Canvas


Hello world!!! You know that feeling like there's  a lump in your throat and you just want to scream with excitement, wait more like squeal?!@ Well that is how I feel every time I look at this painting now that it is hanging in my living room! I am so happy I can share this with the world through the power of the internet. My true inspiration was my wonderful fiancé who is always trying to expand my artistic point of view and pushing me to try new things. So this painting was truly created with love, every single brush stroke that went on this canvas. I hope you all like it and if you have not given painting on canvas a try then maybe this will inspire someone.Did I mention it is an amazing stress reliever? Absolutely addicted!

New art

Been wrapped up with life I haven't been able to enjoy anything. Not complaining, simply stating sometimes we just get used to being on autopilot. For example, have you ever arrived home without even releasing you didn't really enjoy the ride home because you were thinking while you were driving. That's how I have been for the last couple of months just trying to get through with juggling schedules with work and kiddos extra curricular activities and sports.

Now that I have two weeks off on vacation, my goal is to enjoy as much time possible with my children and squeeze in some art time. I have a new inspiration in my life and I must say I love love love her! Andrea Gomoll is a genius! I can relieve whatever emotion I am feeling through this art. I will be sharing my journal on my YouTube channel when it is completed but for now I will be posting a picture every now and then here on my blog to share with anyone who wants to see them...if you are reading this then maybe you kept reading because you can relate to the "autopilot" term and you should give water coloring a try =} let me know I would like to see =}

My dream has come true❤

So while I was crafting at 1 in the morning on 2/14/13 my honey decided to let me start opening my gifts so.. anxiously I start ripping them open completely not knowing what to expect because my honey is not very romantic and has never given me a piece of jewelry lol; this is the man that gave me a twilight poster on our first year of dating (I was not laughing then) and dinner and a movie for the following three. So I was completely clueless as to what I was going to be looking at in a couple of seconds one box was labeled Harumy Tun from Tiffany&Co. (because I was sneaky and called the number on the box when it arrived on Monday)  the other box was much bigger and it was from Henri Bendel (which I love) Well I opened the Harumy Tun box and there was a gorgeous necklace that was inside a suede Tiffany blue bag that was inside a Tiffany blue box then moved on to the next box and expecting something big all I kept pulling out was brown tissue until I finally got to the small Henri Bendel bag that had two small Henri Bendel fabric bags and inside of the first bag was a gorgeous necklace and at this moment my honey got down on his knees and asked me to marry him!! Wait go back a couple of seconds his first words were "this is a promise that your upgrade is coming" and I said "what?!" He then asked me to marry him and said all the amazing romantic words every woman dreams about and placed a band on my finger and I was completely numb instantly!! I did not melt like in the movies I was shocked, excited, confused and overwhelmed with emotions all at once and within seconds I was numb! I woke up this morning and it finally hit me, I am now ENGAGED!! Sure I live with this man that I love so dearly and true we have a bundle together and we are raising my two older children together as a family but like my father once told me " why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free" don't laugh! Those words have stuck with me for 8 years when he warned me to be careful with men and focus on raising my two children. Being raised Catholic I have always wanted the blessing of GOD with the man that I am sharing my life with and it is finally coming true!!!
In this picture you will notice gesso on my hands because remember I was crafting in my happy room when the love of my life decided to take me down a new path in my life!! It may not be romantic for many but it was perfect for me =}

Happiest Day this year!!!

What do you see?
