This Video that Will Inspire You to Find Freedom!

“Break Free” Limited Edition Print Release

Purchase Print Here: “Break Free” Limited Edition Print

 

“Break Free” is a painting created by artist Nicole Troup, that benefits women who have been rescued from human trafficking. A portion of each print goes directly to the local organizations; She’s Somebody’s Daughter and The Truth Home who both aid women locally in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

The print not only stands as a symbol of freedom from the sex industry, but inspires everyday women who have found freedom in God by letting Him break their invisible chains from obstacles in their own lives. These obstacles may be struggles such as bitterness, unforgivness, fear, insecurities, addictions, etc. Nicole hopes that this image is a daily reminder to allow God to break you free from everything that has imprisoned you in chains.

Have You Ever Tried This For Mother’s Day?

Custom Charcoal Portraits to Memorialize the Ones You Love

“It takes someone BRAVE to be a mother, someone STRONG to raise a CHILD, and someone SPECIAL to love someone more than HERSELF…”

I love this quote, because it represents my own mother and so many mothers I know. That being said I’m opening up my MOTHER’S DAY orders for custom charcoal portraits created from your quality photos. Let your wife, mother or grandmother know how special they are by commissioning a unique gift that memorializes your children, grandchildren or even your beloved pets! I can squeeze in two more commissions before Mother’s Day, so please contact me if you are interested!

Womens Month! Support Women Artists Everywhere.

The National Women’s History month amplifies women’s voices to honor the past, inform the present and inspire the future of women, including women in the arts.

As I continue the ongoing art series, the “My Story” project, I’ve been inspired to start a specific series that highlights the stories of women artists from the past and present and their valuable contribution to the art world. Most of the paintings will be created in collaboration with the artist and will use design and color in the background that reflects the artist’s work. For the first painting of the series I’m highlighting American abstract painter Kim Stadin. The background of this painting reflects the abstract lines and vivid colors she often uses in her work.

“My Story” Project: Women Artists Series
Kim Krawitz Stadin‘s Story

Kim Stadin Art is an American abstract artist and television producer living and working in New York. She graduated from Syracuse University and is currently a Producer with Dateline NBC.

Her work is characterized as being colorful, vibrant and captivating. She says it is a reflection of how she feels when she is painting.

“The world can be complicated at times. The events that surround us, that we hear about on the news, are often so dark and tragic. Those are often the stories I cover as a television producer. Painting gives me the opportunity to escape into my very own creative bubble, a fantasy of color, a place where I can use pure spontaneity. To me, color represents life and happiness. I use bold and bright colors to create art that brings a soothing flow of positive energy into any space in which it is placed. I’ve personally discovered that color can have a truly fascinating effect on our every day lives.”

You can purchase Stadin’s work here: www.kimstadin.com.
