An original collage of mine recently sold.  I wanted to share about it…

This original collage “Having Vision” is full of things that are very important to me.  I used acrylic paint, my own photography, paper, and stamps.  

The front doorway of the house is a print of an original water color I did of my friends front door.  This painting is pivotal as it is what launched me into my art business about 7 years ago.  When I gave it to her as a gift ,others saw it and strongly encouraged me to paint commissions like this for others as a business.  So the “sight” quote from Helen Keller is about me having the vision to explore an art business, take a chance.   The photo of daisies by the walkway is a photo of mine of my moms favorite flower.  My mom has always supported my artistic gifts.  The house represents “coming home to who you were meant to be and launching from home to share it with others”.  The mixture of different textures and elements celebrates color, creativity and new ideas.  The eye in the window ties in the quote as well of “having vision” to step out of the comforts of home, in faith to take the chance.
