Happy blog birthday!!!
My goodness, I cannot believe this year has gone by so quickly (and yet, it feels like it has been ten). One year ago yesterday Beautiful Hello Blog began! I am beyond thankful for you, my dear readers. You encourage me more often than you know, I have learned so much, and met so many wonderful people this past year because of this blog! I hope you all have been inspired as much as I have. This is such a great community. I value every one of you. Thanks for making this blog a part of your creative journey!
One year ago I featured artist Donna Walker (the first ever Artist Showcase post!) Donna is fabulous, her work is memorable and beautiful created and I feel like Donna’s work deserves a second look! But let’s be honest, most of you didn’t see that first post (which may be a good thing…. It’s a bit rusty!) I was delighted and surprised to find Donna’s work in a local Charleston gallery! Made my day when the shop owner, another gallery visitor and I got into a conversation about art and Donna’s painting. See? Artwork brings people together!
I love the thick, clean strokes of paint Donna Walker uses as well as the warm and vibrant colors. She paints in a very organized and almost graphic style that is so vibrant and eye-catching. If you would like to learn more about Donna Walker and see her work (and goodness, is there a lot to see!) head over to her site and shop.
Have a beautiful day and be sure to eat a cupcake to celebrate the Beautiful Hello Blog birthday!
