"Noah" and "On the Mend"

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you are all doing well and had a nice Christmas Holiday. This past year was quite busy for me, not so much in the art realm but being a daddy. It has been a real joy watching our little son grow and experience things for the first time. He is almost 11 months old and he is absolutely beautiful. I will be sure to post some recent photos of him when I get a chance, but I did do a little ACEO (aka baby brownie) of him yesterday afternoon. It's very tiny just like he is.

I am hoping to get a little more time in the studio this year. I'm really getting the itch to do some creating but I will take whatever time I am given. Recently, I've been mostly drawing and doing commissions and I'd like to share a drawing I did late last night. It is called, "On the Mend". It is about a tree that is broken, not only physically but also spiritually. It wasn't until he was touched by Love and Light that he is now on the mend. We have all struggled and know people that have struggled with ailments. Here's to a new year ahead in hope of living in Love and in Light.

Have a wonderful day! ~James

You did it again, James! You brought beauty and Spirit andhealing and joy all in one package. Thank you for creating your heartfilled works of art for those of us who live for the purity and innocence that your art is steeped in. The little faerie's pom-poms at the hem of her dress were an especial source of magic; the tear was, as well. Of course, Noah and his teddies were like sweets for the soul. God bless you, Brother and greet your Muse!

a lovely post. I am happy for your happiness of being a papa. Both these pieces are lovely. Last night I was looking at the wee dragon ACEO that I bought from you. It is amazing that you can put so much wonderful detail in a small work of art! Know that your art is being enjoyed.
