Artwork by Lillasmom
My life completely changed last June, when my lovely, lovable, beautiful, beloved daughter went to Heaven… Since then I started to paint. My PAINtings are a piece of me and, I hope, they represent and spread the unconditional love, kindness, beauty, patience, and courage she represents. Without painting I would be submerged by pain.
I just started with oil paint. The photo I’m submitting is my first painting in oil and still a work in progress. I would like to learn how to use the mediums and the different techniques. I’m particularly interested in glazing, portraits, and realistic paintings.
I want to find my style after I’ve learned from the masters.

I simply must paint.
See how art can touch someone’s soul
Be able to express creativity
Do work that I sincerely and actually believe in
Being able to put pencil or brush on paper ideally anytime I want
Feeding my creativity
See that what Is done has made someone happy
Give people a new perspective
Live in a world where everything is an idea or possibility for new art
Endlessly being able to learn and grow
Experience having people explain how much my work means for them
Experience the flow of creativity
Create the possibility to expand ones imagination
Be able to move people intellectually or emotionally through something I’ve made
Make a living from something I’ve made and in which I put my heart
If fortunate, share my art with the world
Work with and through beauty anytime I want
