so I have this thing for paint.
it’s more on a bright-incalculable-soul level, a love for all things tangible and abstract,…the powers of color and textures and intriguing subtleties found when color meets space and brushstrokes spread the love from paper’s edge to edge.
the drama of art is an endless fascination.
a friend made me a journal once with “the splatter girl” on it’s spine, and I guess that’s what I’ve been known for. I used to cover t-shirts and walls with the delicious spontaneity for everyone who’d humor me, and those days were mighty loved.
earlier this year when I was rebrandinging my photography business, I decided paint was the only theme I could really be excited about. after more thought, it turned out to be perfect. I have this habit of over-analyzing or romanticizing every thought that enters my brain, but I don’t think I’m crazy in believing that the art of painting is very much like the magic of relationships.
the colors, the texture, the layers – the unique expressiveness.
and photography? I’m entirely driven by feelings, (INFP to the nth!) and I want my people to genuinely see themselves and their imaginative love in the images we make together.
the amazing jennifer olmstead tied all my ideas together and designed these beautiful cards. and then! it seemed only appropriate to paint the other sides : )
(and yes, I ignored the tons of paint I already had and splurged on a new CRAYOLA WATERCOLOR SET.
you’re never too old for that new-box-of-crayons joy!)
. . . and then I had fun.
ahhh I just love them!
if you might have friends who need pretty pictures, I’d love to send you a bunch to give out! nearly all of my work is through word of mouth and I can’t appreciate that enough.
so anyways, if we ever meet and you see dried paint under my nails. . . now you know why : )
