First breath of fresh air

A collection of art and a dedication to life.....

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it - begin it now. 
~Goethe

Welcome to the sneak peak of my first (official) art line ever! It's been a work in progress now for 3 months. Hard work I must add. Sunny days, rainy days, late nights with headphones in my ears, in my studio some days, outside mostly, lost in my creative spirit. I've named the line, "Fresh Air", since all the paintings are inspired from my travels these last few months through Hawaii, Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. 

As any artist might feel in the beginning, I feel quite vulnerable showing these to the world. As vulnerable as someone might feel breathing their very first breath of air ever. These pieces are my own perspective of the world, and reflections of my soul. Have you ever felt that you've been waiting your entire life for something to happen? I felt that this week. This has been building for years, my fingers itching to paint it. 

This collection is dedicated to a very special soul who actually took their first breath of fresh air this very moment. It was dedicated to you even before you were born, but you came early. You've melted my heart with your big eyes and dark hair. You are more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. 

I love you M.Dominique.
