Inspired Art: Beth Allen

I absolutely love stumbling upon unexpected beauty and inspiration.  It can happen when I’m in a boutique, when I’m browsing etsy, when I’m reading a blog or book, when I’m meeting a new friend.  This time it happened in a moment of what I like to call “Instagram Serendipity”, when you find someone on IG with whom you were meant to cross paths.  I have been searching online for the perfect painting of Christ to hang in the boys room. And I’ve been on the hunt for nearly two years–looking for a piece that is bright and happy and gentle–a piece that my young boys can relate to, can identify with, can find peace in.  I’ve found hundreds of pieces in my search but none ever felt quite right for the boys.  But then…this:

It’s called “Not One is Alone“.

My heart leapt. I knew I had found the one.  When I went to find the artist I learned that I had somehow ended up  on Beth Allen Art’s IG feed–and I was in love with ALL of her work.  I can’t really say that I’ve ever had an experience where art has “spoken to me” before now.  Sure I’ve appreciated art. But never has it resonated so deeply as it did when I poured over Beth’s portfolio.  I wrote her immediately and asked if I could share some of her work with y’all and she was kind enough to say yes.  Meet Beth Allen you guys–and be ready to fall in love:

    You want a internet site devoted on the product and to appointing.
    He teaches people that being a leader is a choice you make for yourself, now.
    After the performance, he mentioned he was from Denver and how it was his pleasure to
    be in Pueblo, Colo.

    The blogosphere is a small world. I’ve been following Beth’s blog for a while AND NieNie’s (the last portraits). Cool that you connected!

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any
    recommendations?

    I think the admin of this website is truly working
    hard for his web page, since here every stuff is
    quality based material.

    Perhaps because of Herve Leger Replica how we show our pieces, or just the assumed way of Herve Leger,
