I love meeting people ! I love meeting online people that I may never ever get to meet in person. It is kind of what I do these days. But more on that later.
I first “met” Leslee Horner when I started following her blog Waiting for the Click. She had a great blog and was a fabulous and engaging writer. I honestly am not sure how I first found her but I found myself very excited when she would write a new post. Her words usually carried quite an impact with me and I was grateful I had found her. As time went on she decided to take a break from blogging and recently I reconnected with her on Facebook and I have picked up with her again in a different way.
Leslee is not only a writer but an artist. A pretty amazing artist in my book. She creates what she calls “personalized intuitive art” which is a combination of collage and acrylic painting. Once she has the name of the person the artwork is for she magically creates a masterpiece. I asked her to create one for me and I was blown away when I received my painting.–Please check out her website here.
I love it, don’t you? (Click on the picture to enlarge to see the detail if you want to! It is awesome!) Then she posted another picture online that she had just done and I HAD TO HAVE IT! It was the perfect fit for my downstairs bathroom and I think you will agree.
I commented to my husband that I absolutely LOVED having artwork done by people that I know. He looked at me and said “Isn’t this from one of your imaginary friends who you have never met and most likely will never meet? You don’t really know her.” Well, yea, but YOU know what I mean!!! I know her!!
I do have some other “favorite” pieces of art in our home. This one is by my mom and I love it!!! I have several of her pieces. And I DO KNOW her!!! Isn’t she talented?
And then of course I have to feature “Cotton” Ketchie who I DO know who is a wonderful artist from Mooresville, NC. I am happy to say that we are friends in real life! This is just one of our many pieces of “Cotton’s work. Check out his gallery here.
I just realized how horrible all of my pictures of my pictures are after I looked at the post! Sorry—but you get the idea!!!
So there you have a few of my favorite pieces of art. What is your style? Is there any piece in your home that is your absolute favorite?? I would love to hear!
