Unique Christmas Card Idea | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art

illustrated family | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art
Can you believe it is that time already to start thinking about Christmas cards?  Whaat!  I hear ya.  I’m just settling into all things Fall and not ready to let it go so I know how easy it is to put off planning for the next thing.  Christmas, however, will not wait for us to be mentally and physically ready (it’s coming ready or not) and I’m here to help you make the start of the season more personal and beautiful.
Sending Christmas cards is a classic tradition that is one of my favorites, and I like to make a whole special event out of it.  A warm drink (preferably coffee), my favorite pen, Hallmark movie, and fireplace going if it is cold enough.  taking time to send a personal greeting to all my friends and family is important to me especially for those who I can’t see often, and let’s be honest, receiving Christmas greetings is just as exciting.

 Meaningful Blooms is a new floral series full of symbolism and emotion.  Each painting will be released one at a time as they are completed, and the original as well as fine art prints will be available for purchase.

I am excited to share this new collection with you, but I am also a bit nervous.  Can I successfully expose my heart in a visual way to you through the paintings?  Will they be well received with the same love that they were created with?  Will they ignite hearts and inspire change?  These are the questions I ask myself because I want to be a voice for the voiceless, and it is my prayer to have my voice joined with an entire choir of voices.

What Defines Home | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art

 

I have been thinking a lot about home lately, and how I would define it.  Maybe because of the recent house portraits I’ve painted or maybe because of this season of staying at home (probably both).  Either way, it has been on my mind.

Home is where dreams are made, new chapters begin, and stories end.  It’s being carried over the threshold, welcoming a new baby, hot meals around the table talking about the day, holiday celebrations, birthday parties, family movie nights, seeking wise council, laughing, crying, and praying together, high school graduations, collage diplomas, planning weddings, and saying goodbye.  It’s waiting for the kids to return home for a visit and holding the first grandchild. Home is our own little warm, cozy, and safe part of the world where we feel free to let life happen. Home is where our story begins and ends.

If you are anything like me and my family, you have found yourself spending more time in the kitchen since the stay home order. I have been doing more home cooked meals, baking, fermenting komboucha and kefir, and I even joined the "sour dough" club.  I find it comforting knowing I'm preparing something delicious and nourishing for my family, and we all can use some extra comfort during a time like this.
