This past November I considered what I was thankful for. My spouse, family, health, and job were among my first thoughts. I viewed the #blessed Twitter stream during the few days surrounding Thanksgiving expecting to see many tweets about similar blessings. While I did see some of these blessings tweeted I was surprised to see dozens of tweets about pie.
Pie has been around in some form for thousands of years and it is no secret that Americans love their pie. For many of us, seeing a pie brings to mind family gatherings and happy times. So I thought to myself, is pie a blessing?
I believe, as Christians, we should take a moment to pause and give thanks to Jesus for what he did for us on the cross.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. In the Twitter world the pair of phrases #blessed and #breastcancer appeared together in more than 25 tweets between October 1, 2013 and October 22, 2013. The #breastcancer hashtag appeared without #blessed over 1100 times during this same time period. Twitter users were feeling blessed to be a survivor, know a survivor or be able to donate to research and spread awareness. It was through these tweets, that I was inspired to create the four artworks below.
I enjoy creating designs that are colorful, inspiring, and meaningful.
