Hi sweet friends! I hope everyone is having a great start to the month of June. It's finally my favorite season (yay, summertime!) and I think that this brand new collection of paintings is a great reflection of all things summer and JOY!
This series includes 14 original abstract paintings and one limited edition fine art print, and they're all based on the theme "Fullness of Joy."
The “Fullness of Joy” Collection was created out of my love for encouraging others and sharing joy through painting. I wanted these abstract paintings to be cheerful, yet layered and complex due to the challenges in the paths that some take to find their joy. Beautiful moments peeking through the journey to find joy are represented by bright colors layered beneath the shades of white. I believe that joy is a continual journey throughout life and it can be found even within the quietest of moments.
These paintings were created with love and acrylic paint, chalk pastels, oil pastels, pencil, texture tools, and even some watercolor. Using a variety of different materials to create these original works represents how joy can be found through varying circumstances. The paintings in this collection are all abstract because I believe that abstract paintings tell a different story to each viewer, and each person may be drawn to different elements within the pieces.
I have chosen a different joyful saying to compliment each painting. These sentiments are meaningful to me, not only because my middle name is Joy, but also because of my personal journey, my faith, and my mission to share joy through my art.
I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on this "Fullness of Joy" series, so be sure to comment below or contact me if you'd like to chat! View more images and join in on the fun over on Instagram as well. Ya'll are awesome, and I hope your day is filled with lots of joy!
