An Art Swap

March 29, 2011

I so enjoy creating for someone with a kindred spirit. A person who really gets why your soul feels the need to create with your hands. That is why I really enjoy participating in art swaps. Last year, I hosted the Canvas Art Swap at Silver Bella. I paired two Bellas and each of us created a canvas for each other. I created a canvas for Natalie and she created one for me... Just look at all the beautiful detail that went into Natalie's artwork that she gifted me with...Natalie is an incredible artist. As she created this gorgeous artwork for me, she was battling cancer. Each time I look at this lovely piece of artwork, I a reminded of an incredible woman who gifted me with a little bit of herself. I will treasure this piece always.

So I encourage you, if you have ever thought about joining an art swap, do it. I think you will enjoy it. (Check back here next week, as I will be announcing an art swap that I will be hosting.)

Wishing you all a blessed day, dear friends.

That is an beautiful piece, Sheila. I don't know Natalie well but I have been very moved by her courage and her willingness to keep creating and living her life. She's a great example to us all. XO
