Art inspired and created from the heart

Skye Rose

Skye Rose


This painting is one of my latest creations, it was fun to paint I am working on producing paintings in a shorter time frame and reducing the cost of producing some of my art. The challenge of painting a painting in under an hour or an hour and a half is motivational and with luck will make me a better artist as I am less judgmental if I haven’t spent weeks on a creation.

This painting was inspired by and painted with the thought of a fellow blogger in mind. She is a Sweet Lady with a heart of gold her name is Skye and the comments or roses she shares were the feelings I was reaching for as I expressed my thoughts in my art. The subdued hearts and colors were the initial thought and I almost chose to use a bird like pair of images to make a heart shape in the sky. I decided to do the rose as it felt right on the back ground.

Skyes blog is a real treat if you would like to check it out.


Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit and choose to come and visit again. I will be posting more of my art in the near future as well as some art created by some of my friends as they choose to share it as well as some of their stories of inspiration as they share from their hearts the art that they produce. Thank you again and I hope you got a smile out of the visit.

  7. Joe this is such a beautiful painting and I’m glad you chose to paint it to honor our friend Skye. Skye is such a special young woman and dear friend. Her love of the Lord is evident always in what she writes and in what she does. She truly is one of God’s beautiful roses. (I can hear her now if she reads this comment, saying ‘oh pish posh!’)

    • Yes Elaine, Skye is truly one of those beautiful Roses created in heaven for us to embrace and enjoy as we share time with her on this earth and beyond. I appreciate the thoughts and sentiment shared yet with that in m ind my simple painting inspired by such a beautiful being is nothing near the beauty of Skye nor could it ever truly be compared. A simple gesture she inspired as she shared a thought about a painting I created for a friend. I am grateful for the friendship and joy Skye has brought as she shares her true beauty and her heart in her words and her actions. She like you ahs a heart of Gold! Thank you for sharing yours in such a beautiful way! πŸ™‚ Joe
