Worship Art

Three older paintings and one new one. I hung these up in our little place just because I thought they looked good together and a couple months later I realized that there is a theme. Can you guess what it is? The latest one (on the bottom left) is magnifying what is in the others.

Cartoon Selfies for $20.00

Caricatures are fun! It’s you in cartoon form; it’s a Cartoon-Selfie!
I have been doing a lot of cartooning lately. I guess I just need to laugh and have some fun in my life. Cartoon Selfies (is what I am calling them because that seems like it would be more politically correct) are great for gifts, profiles, parties, events and fundraisers!

Uncluttered

Uncluttering our lives so we can do and be and live freely without distractions is a beautiful thing. Sometimes it is not a bad thing when we lose things or have to scale down our lives. It is amazing what we can do without. Decluttering our lives of things can be calming and allows us to focus on what is most important in our lives.
"Uncluttered" can be purchased at House of James

This Orignal Acrylic Painting can be purchased at House of James in Abbotsford, BC.

ART for a CAUSE

“ART for a CAUSE”

Fundraising for charities, non-profit organizations and causes has always been on my heart. There is always a need and yet there is always a sense of helplessness when we think of how we can help. ART for a CAUSE is a fundraising tool for Charities, Non-profit organizations or causes. The idea is to rent out art pieces to businesses, offices or individuals for a monthly fee with 50% going to the Cause. The idea came to me from someone else who was doing this for their cause. It combines my 2 passions; Art and Causes. I have donated my artwork to many causes but I have not made money myself. Everyone needs to live so that they can help others so I decided that I can only donate my art if I make a living too.



Vision: Renting art pieces out to the business community in support of the Charity, Non-profit organization or Cause
  • Each Art piece will be an original Acrylic 4' X 4' painting
  • Rental Fee will be 200.00 per painting per month
  • 100.00 to Charity and 100.00 to the Artist Susan Harris
  • The goal is to rent out 20 paintings which would mean 2,000.00 for Charity and 2,000.00 for the Artist.
  • Oppositions to purchase artwork with rental fee going towards purchase.
Current Project:

Spring Time

Spring time has always been my favorite time of year. I must have been anxious for it to get here because I painted this at the end of February shortly after I broke both of my elbows and had to be stuck in the condo like a cage animal. Sometimes it is good to focus on what you are looking forward to. It gets you through a difficult time.

Embracing Life's Ups and Downs

Recently, I tripped on the city sidewalk and broke both of my elbows. My immediate thought was I can't move my arms and how am I going to paint now. You know what your passion is when crisis heights and your first thought is how am going to do what I love. Before the Doc operated on my elbows I asked him when can I paint. He said the next day; right after. It would be great theory. I was relieved. Well, I didn't paint to next day but a couple weeks later I gave it a go. And even though my arms were not working exactly as I wanted it was the best therapy; not only for my arms but for my soul.
