I've been painting since I was a little girl. It's one of those things where I can be who I am and use my imagination take its own course. It's very relaxing, too... My daughters JuJu and Soapy love it when a new painting is placed on my chair in the morning - they get so excited and give me a feedback and they're pretty acurate.
For some of my new readers : Five years ago, I gave one of my paitning to my brother in law as a Christmas gift. People who saw it loved my work and several friends asked me to paint something for them. That's when I started thinking about turning my passion into a profession. Last year December after carefully designing and organizing for eight months, I launched my own business: It's called "Barefoot Chic Design" and you can click on my logo on the right sidebar if you would like to check out the website...
I still have my part time job, but I am slowly, but surely heading towards my goal which is to have my business as my full time job. I would really love to be a stay at home mom again (I was a house wife for six years until the fall of 2008) and do what I love the best - Painting.
The photo above is my new creation "Hope" that I painted for a giveaway that's going on right now over at my dear friend Dionne's blog. Please head over there and enter if you would like.
With all of the things going on in my life and around the world, I tend to cling on the word, "Hope" - I think it's such a beautiful word, don't you agree? I always look up in the sky and hope....
Hope you're having a lovely day!
