This is a wooden plaque that I painted barn red with acrylics. I darkened the corners with pigment black. I used sandpaper along the edges. There is a random pattern of stamps and large swirly circles in the background- also in acylics. The letters are wooden. I embellished with burlap and buttons.

From the moment of conception He has given me an infinite canvas. A canvas to sketch an intricate pattern of my life. He has endowed me with the tools to errect such a picture of magnificent beauty by blending the colors of my soul. With this canvas I will paint with exquiset detail untill my soul comes together with my Creator. I intend to waste no space on my canvas. I will produce the most vivid stars as a symbol of my brothers and sisters. The moon I will draw to represent my father, the guiding light who teaches me by his example. My mother who gave me my life light will be shown as the beaming sun who nutures unselfishly. Because I am the perfect creator of this canvas. I know that my life is but limited on this earth. When that exillerating day comes for me to depart my casing I will have left behind an artistic masterpiece that can never be uncreated and will be cherished by my liniage forever. The most profound gift is not life but the knowledge to understand life. The greatest gift that He has given me is my spirit. A spirit that is of Him. A spirit that will rejoice and extacy when it finally knows the unknowable. -Author unknown

Art is never wrong
A home is for free expression not first impressions
