Hello I have the best inspirational story to link you to over at Lisa Minckler's blog!
She gave me just a few notes about what she wanted for a canvas that she asked me to make for her, I was scared at first. After calming down with excitement I let my creative juices flow and then I stopped to think "am I doing this right?" But then I just let it go and created what I hoped Lisa wanted from me.
Yes she is not my usual canvas style and you are probably wondering why I altered her eyes. You need to go read the best real life story ever at Lisa Minckler's Blog only she can tell it!!!!!
Here are bits and pieces of her story just a teaser
"you'll literally be my arms and legs' kept replaying in my mind. HOLY CRAP...I wanted to ralph right there on the side of the road."
"my ears were filled with the glorious sound of her doorbell that seemed like the singing of little angels. My nerves were instantly calmed as the door slowly opened and what I saw on the other side of the threshold would change my life forever."
" GASP...what the hell did I just say??? Did I just completely botch this?"
"Now, here's where I tell you a bit more about Cheryl and explain the reason for this incredible canvas."
"We sat down at the kitchen table and she opened up her life to me and explained why I was sitting in the home of a woman in a wheelchair, drinking tea and talking."
" That was Cheryl's welcome home party.
She ended the story with, "Yah, it pretty much sucked."
"See, Cheryl is a very attractive woman who prides herself on always looking her best. She has that gorgeous thick black shiny hair that makes all the rest of us women sick and her makeup is done to perfection;"
"When I walked back into the room, I nearly pee'd myself.
I had never seen a more ridiculous sight in all my life and I don't think I've laughed that hard in forever."
"finally able to explain that the cones were"
"And different she is...and wonderful and inspiring and most definitely a human being that I respect and admire."
"So what does this have to do with my earlobe after all of that?"

I was so honored to be part of Lisa's story but so moved as I read it. As I was reading her story I was so emotional after realizing how my canvas was fitting into it. Divine direction is the only way I could create a canvas to match her story. Lisa is amazing, so is Cheryl and you will be moved by this, in a good way. Thank you Lisa for asking me to paint your story!!
