Art Friday: Trisha Romance


Art Friday: Trisha Romance

I was in two minds about doing a post today as it is currently Christmas Day in the Northern Hemisphere and Boxing Day in Australia and visitor numbers might be very small. But if I bring a smile and joy to just one visitor today with artwork by Trisha Romance, then I have done my job. 

I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas Day (in Australia any way) and your celebrations brought joy and happiness to all who shared it with you.  Who ate too much on Christmas Day? I certainly did!! And who has leftovers in their fridge - I do, lots of ham and turkey that will be enjoyed in sandwiches in the coming week :)

Trisha Romance paintings are sweet and touching. Her colours are gentle and her topics are serene and peaceful. I think you will particularly enjoy her mother and children scenes as they are beautiful. 

I love these two paintings - Santa after completing all his hard work delivering gifts and good cheer around the world. I know Santa isn't real and has nothing to do with Christmas, but there something very sweet about these paintings. Santa is little like Narnia, its not real either, but sometimes when I open my wardrobe, I just wonder if I could pop through to the other side and see what is happening! There is still a child in me somewhere!!!

  1. Those are great, I love them!!
    Funny story about yesterday's meals - we started the day well, I got the slow cooker started early (making chili), but I mistakenly did put it on hot enough and by the time we wanted to eat in the evening it wasn't cooked!! So in the end we used a massive zucchini from the garden and poured quiche mixture into it and around it and ate something like a quiche-stuffed zucchini instead!! Oh well - now we have chili to eat today and tomorrow instead, which will save me having to cook for longer! :P

  3. Yes, it's Christmas day here in Arkansas USA, but the day is winding down now, and as I sat at the computer I thought that, just perhaps you might have posted art Friday, and sure enough you did! So yes, you brought a smile to a face and I always look forward to Art Fridays! We have much of the same taste in the arts! Thanks for always sharing.
    And Merry Christmas!

  4. Jo.. Enjoyed Art Friday as always. It's Boxing Day in the UK now, but these lovely paintings were just what I needed to help me unwind from a somewhat hectic day yesterday. Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to post them ;-)

  5. Lovely paintings, and I really enjoyed the Santas. It seems the artist does know the true meaning of Christmas, as Santa has a nativity under his tree.
    Love the gentle scenes portrayed here.

    1. The artist is just so talented - her paintings are gentle and full of emotions. The Santa ones are very sweet and I love the sleeping kitty cat with him!!

  7. You featured another of my favorite artists, Jo! All of her paintings touch me, but there's just something special about the mother/child ones. I had fun posting Christmas art, now I need to find the time to continue. I don't think I made a comment, but I loved your post about art and storytelling.

    May 2015 be a year of growing closer to God each day. Happy New Year, Jo!

    1. Her mother and child paintings were also my favourite, they are full of love and emotion. Just beautiful.

      I write down a list of my favourite artists or themes I want to do and when I have some time I might do two or three at once so I have a collection waiting to post on Fridays. It is time consuming and when I don't have much time I don't write very much!!

      Happy new year :)

    2. Jo, it's so tempting to spend a lot of time with art that I don't believe I could ever do a regular weekly feature! But you do a great job and I never miss your post.

      Speaking of lots of time . . . See what you think of something I just came up with this week. I love pictures of churches, so I created a Pinterest board and am slowly adding art and photos to it. I'm nowhere near through, but would love to do a themed post on it sometime. Here's my Pinterest link for the board: http://www.pinterest.com/pianolady831/art-upon-this-rock/
