Embracing Life

There are no brakes on life. It’s hard and fast and furious if we fight it and try to slow it down. Since that doesn’t work, what if we embrace it – no matter what the old devil has thrown at us? He will make sure to distract us with things that keep us down rather than build us up. He makes evil things look like something we want or something we should want in order to be happy. But we never are.

I painted this painting called “Hello World” back in 2015:

It’s funny my very own work means something more to me now than it did back then. When I painted it, I was thinking of a world of possibilities and welcoming those possibilities. And, I still do think of this.  Now, I also see him outstretched and looking to God for guidance and being open, welcoming His presence. Since there are large buildings, I imagine him to be in the city where there is lots of noise and distractions but he is focused, has direction and determination. 

Because of all this, I love the painting even more. I’ve held on to him for a good deal of time but I do feel he’s ready. I have listed him in the shop . 

I hope he brings someone joy, just as he has me.

Engagement Gift

I’ve created a new ornament all about the proposal! For this one, I wanted to show the man on one knee holding out a beautiful engagement ring and the woman delighted with the scene in front of her. I hope I captured this most happiest occasion:

I so love my job and creating precious ornaments that are sure to be treasured for life. It makes people happy, so what more could I possibly want? <3

These are available in my shop here. I thought they’d make a sweet gift for a precious friend or relative who just got engaged or even a treasure for their bridal shower.

Paintings Galore

I was able to reach my goal of getting 48 listings up today! I figured I’d make another post this evening and then I’m going to leave the computer for a good long while. It’s been a long day of listing, editing photos, sharing photos and such. Though, I truly love my “job”!

Okay, that’s enough for tonight and probably more than anyone would want to actually look through at one time. I realize these are photo heavy but maybe my overly talkative post earlier today makes up for that. 🙂

xoxo and good night my friends,

Rhonda
