FOLLOW YOUR ART: FINDING JOY
What brings you joy?
Now more than ever we’re appreciating the simpler things in life… a healthy home cooked meal, a quiet time reflecting on the patio, playing with our pets or a refreshing glass of wine with someone we love. For me, it’s all of the above and being surrounded by art – art of all shapes and sizes. Art inspires me and allows me to continue following my passions in life. Art brings beauty into our homes, offices and healthcare facilities. The other day, I was installing a newly framed painting in a clients bedroom and when she saw it, she gasped and said, “I really missed this while it was in your frame shop. It makes me so happy and I can’t live without it!" Art is beautiful, but it truly makes us feel good. Don’t we all need more of that? I say YES!
A SPECIAL MEMORY PRESERVED
I truly believe that things happen for a reason. I ran into Lucie at an out-of-town wedding, and ran into her again at breakfast the next day. Lucie's adoptive mother had brought her a surprise gift - the tiny outfit she was wearing the day Lucie was brought home from foster care.
When I saw the tears of joy in Lucie's eyes, I offered to preserve it in a frame for her as a gift. She was thrilled, and sent me her little bear she had as a baby - it made everything even more special. I also contacted her mother, and asked her to write a letter recalling how she felt when she saw Lucie's tiny face for the first time. Here are a few images of how we preserved the special memories, as well as the final gift. Her story warms my heart!
