Shining on the Inside, Shining some more on the Outside

 8" x 8" x 1.5"
Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas

Have been listening to a lot of Wade Morissette in yoga class (yes he's Alanis' sister).  His lyrics below really touched me deeply and inspired this little heart painting above as well as the other little hearts I have done.  So simple, pure and true.

Joy on the inside and peace on the outside
Loving on the inside and laughing on the outside
Kissing on the inside and healing on the outside
Flowing on the inside and thriving on the outside
Clearing on the inside and accepting the outside
Shining on the inside and shining on the outside

Here's a shot of this little canvas from the side. The heart pops off the canvas almost 2 inches for a fun effect.  The whole piece is ripe with texture. This painting is currently on display at The Cameron Gallery in their "Made for Love" exhibit.  My friend is actually on her way to pick me up and we are heading over there for the "Lovers' Preview" event from 3-6 p.m.  It is my hope that this piece will make someone a wonderful Valentine's Day present. Time will tell...


  1. That is gorgeous! I've been looking for the name of this song as someone played it in our yoga class yesterday :)

  2. Thanks, Casey! And thanks for stopping by, Lindsey! that piece is still available, email me at if you would like any details. Glad that song spoke to you too.
