OBAMA: Made In USA



Hello Pin Pals,
I have to be honest. Realism has never been one of my strong points but I am estatic about the way my new pieces are turning out. It's definitely God cause I'm not taking any painting or sculpting classes, nor have I ever! Although I do pray before I start each piece and ask Him to guide me. I was asked earlier this year by one of my collectors if I could do a painting of Obama. I immediately felt honored and nervous at the request. Honored because this person has bought other pieces from me before and really loved my work but nervous because realism just wasn't 'my thing'. Or so I thought. I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and onto my faith. Here's a sneak peak at the Obama commission I just finished. The unpainted photo shows more of the detail of the actual 3D pieces. It was a wonderful experience and I loved having full creative control and mixing my graphic design and fine art skills. During the creation of this piece, I've been asked to do a few more commissions with this style. I'm loving my life as an artist!!!

Much love,
Renecia

Maternity Paintings


Hello Pin Pals,
I absolutely love my latest creations, the maternity paintings with my new 3D sculpted, mixed media style. The Joy of Jayden, also on a 12"x 9" canvas has just been finished and was so titled because the soon-to-be parents are really enjoying the pregnancy and their upcoming bundle of joy!

Much love,
Renecia

A new name: Yaya!


Hello Pin Pals,
I am so excited! Life just never turns out quite as expected. My son and his girlfriend are the new parents of a handsome and healthy baby boy named Acelan! Never thought I'd be a grandma so soon but hey, worse things could happen. I have realized that it's a blessing to be alive and well to see the next generation created from my genes. Thank you Lord for once again blessing me!!!

I created a painting titled, ACELAN in honor of the pregnancy that brought me my first grandchild. It's a 9"h x 12"w 3D sculpted mixed media piece on canvas. I had a great time making it, but it was also a very emotional time for me. One of my babies was having a baby. Wow! So now I have a new name, Yaya which means grandmother in Greek. Gotta have a cute name for a cute grandma!!!

Much love,
Renecia
