Can you believe it? How lucky am I to be spending a snowy Sunday at home painting in my sun room with windows all around me, and all I can see is SNOW! Yes, this is Atlanta! It has been snowing ALL DAY! It has been several years since we have seen snow come down like this. It is so pretty! I had to take some pictures and show you. I also took some pictures from my perspective as I paint in my studio. Wouldn't you just love it? It was so peaceful today. It looked like the trees had their branches stretched way out as if they were begging for more! I could even imagine little tongues sticking out as they tilted this way and that way, trying to catch every snowflake. It was an amazing show!
Atlanta has started to become more of a tropical area with Georgia being a more tropical state. But today, it felt like the old days. It was more like North Georgia, and more beautiful than I can describe. I can remember the days when I would walk to school in the morning and I could feel the ice crunch under my little feet. It was always like this the first month of school. I can even remember going back to school shopping and buying sweaters, coats, long pants and tights. It was always so much fun. Going back to school shopping always meant winter would be coming, and we might get snow that particular year. It was something to look forward to because it meant a day out of school when we needed it the most. The timing always seemed to be perfect.
Please enjoy looking at my pictures, and the not so much progress being made to the dance painting. I took a break this weekend to go and see two different plays I had friends in. They were wonderful! Now I am ready to start a new week and get back to work.
Tonight I am going to add the OAOE Team tag to most of my work on Etsy. Hopefully it will help unify us as a team. We are the Original Artists on Etsy Team. I updated my shop bio as well. The front page of my store should read a little differnent now.
Have a great week, and thanks again. Beth Kiwi=Arts www.kiwiarts.etsy.com www.kiwiarts.artfire.com
Kiwi-Arts was founded after a long journey of visions.
One morning I awoke with a strong urge to experience paint. I wanted to feel the paint in my hands, I wanted to touch the brushes, and I wanted to mix colors all day long. I loved the feeling of paint on different surfaces. I developed a desire to apply paint, and scrape it off again, only to continue this process as visions began to reveal themselves. I studied art/painting at Spurill Art Center for the Arts in Atlanta Georgia under the direction of Chery Baird and started to fulfill my desires of freedom.
My paintings are painted by seeing beyond the image itself, and my desire to express freedom. All of my paintings are a spiritual journey and my hope is that my audience is able to feel this journey as they view my pieces.
My goal is to inspire others through my passion for life. My wish for you is to find peace within yourself, and that you listen to the small voice that is within us all. Share positive energy, and fuel others by it. Do not hold onto negative feelings, and express yourself through your given talents.
