The "Blessings" Collection
a collection of rebirthed art pieces with messages to uplift, bless, & inspire
A few years ago I began a series of original 5" x 5" canvases I call "Mini's". Each canvas had a word to uplift, bless, and empower - ie, faith, love, joy, hope, etc... and a flower. The canvases were cut from larger, rejected canvases I no longer loved and then I painted on top of these scraps and re-purposed them. This gives the entire collection a feeling of re-birth - a great foundational theme. These paintings have gone on to bless cancer patients, newly married couples, friends going through a tough time, or someone who wishes to brighten their day. From these 5" x 5" "Minis" I created reproductions of some of the more popular original pieces - 10" x 10" printed on canvas - called "Blessings". I then created "Mini Blessings" on artboard, cards created from old rejected paintings, and new to the collection - Eco-Printed Journals. All of the pieces in the collection have the re-puposed/re-birth foundational theme and a message to uplift, bless, and inspire.
