On days when I am feeling particularly low or when I just need a chance to feel inspired and renewed in my craft – I grab my camera and start to photograph the little things that remind me how very blessed I am.
In life, it’s easy for me to lose focus of God’s active presence and goodness that is always sustaining me and keeping me “afloat” in the sea of life – I wanted this piece to be a visual reminder of that.
Through the storms of life, may the only thing brewing be your coffee.
– Irish Coffee Blessing
Creativity has allowed me focus, drive and purpose in my life.
My goal in creating this piece was to inspire hope and to celebrate a victory in her life.
When presented with a design problem, I begin by researching online and see what other designers came up with for similar problems. I limit my search to maybe three pieces. I do not want to model my work off others, but rather open my mind to different ways of thinking. I’ll also create multiple sketches (spending five seconds on each) to get an idea of how I want the final composition to look.
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?
