This is my little space on the internet where I wear my heart on my sleeve, where I keep it real and above all, where I hope to encourage others. I share my life with you, not because I think I’m awesome, but because I believe that life is meant to be shared. And maybe, just maybe, God will use my story, experiences and randomness to encourage you in your life.

The joy of Canvas Clusters

I placed the order and let out a shriek of excitement. I was one step closer to having my first canvas cluster on my office wall. I have loved the look of canvas wraps since before I was even a photographer and have since been itching to display my work in such a beautiful format. I spent hours mulling over layouts and photos and was finally ready to press “send order”. I was in Wisconsin when I finally placed the order and wasn’t back to AZ yet when they arrived. Had I been, I most certainly would have hugged the UPS guy upon their arrival. Joe used this situation to tease me telling me that he was going to open them up to get a sneak peek before I did. Thankfully he knew better than to actually do that! When I arrived back home I could barely contain my excitement. I was like a kid on Christmas morning waiting to rip into my presents. I started with the big one first and I’m pretty sure I let out an audible gasp. It was in that moment, that I truly felt like an artist. Seeing my work on the textured canvas gave me a new appreciation for what it is I have the honor of doing. The way the colors and pixels combine together to tell a story of love, laughter and life had me taken aback. I am blessed by each person that steps in front of my camera and these canvases reminded me of that.

Main center canvas: 20×32

2 side canvases: 16×20

3 center canvases: 10×10
