My Soul

My heart belongs to my daughter. My soul however is up on a shelf waiting for a special someone to dust it off. It is in a can with his name on it, he has seen it through my eyes. Its there for the taking if he can reach it. ~Amanda Delight

Jared Knight

This painting I did of Artist, Jared Knight was inspired by the style and composition of Vincent van Gogh's self portrait with straw hat dated 1887. 

Jared Knight is an abstract painter, who explores the world without formed thought. He feels that organized thought is what is destroying us. He has been painting all of his life, and in every dream. painting, for him is a way of life, a way of finding, and losing ones self. Abstract painting is dangerous, and fast. He warns you to be careful when viewing his work... you might not make it back.

I have known Jared since 2007. He has become a great friend and confidant. Not only has he been instrumental in my growth as an artist helping me understand the ways of the industry, but he has seen me get through some huge milestones in my personal life as well. We have exchanged paintings back and forth that we have collaborated on and we have also done each others portraits. Not to mention, we have made several videos of each other...and Jared has posted some hilarious parodies of yours truly that I absolutely adored!

Thank you Nicole!

Today when I got home I was greeted with a blog posted on my Facebook.  It was written by Nicole Cameron-Baer.  She is an OB Ultrasound Tech, or as I would say, My People!  She has a kind heart and is a pleasure to have on my friends lists.  One day soon Im sure well will share crazy patient stories over a hot cup of tea. 

Thank you Nicole for your support and following me on my journey.  I love the order in which you listed my hats, for I list them in that order as well.  Its an order of importance in my life.  My daughter being number one and my art coming before my career in women' s health.  I truly love what I do as a mother, artist and professional for they introduce me to wonderful people such as yourself!
