Dios te Ama
I have a dear friend who is a fantastic artist.
Her name is Anne. She is just one of those people who can pick up anything and make something beautiful from it - and look out if she is picking up a paintbrush! Years ago, she painted a fabulous mural in our guest bath here at the ranch. It is a winding, tuberous botanical that she aged and made to look a hundred years old.
Anyway, I was working on the spring collection and came across this 10 pesos note that someone had scrawled "Dios te ama" on. I loved it and asked Anne to create a watercolor collage for a t-shirt based on the pesos' message, "God loves you." The only guidelines I gave her were these:
- include the 10 pesos note,
- have a handmade Mexican craft feel,
- and send a message.
So, about a day later (really, she is super fast) this illustration board shows up.
See, isn't she fantastic?!
Here is what Anne has to say about her inspiration and thoughts behind designing this piece:
Could it be that I've come full circle in my heart and mind and once again believe as a child that simple, trusting belief that: Jesus loves me this I know....and everything else is secondary?and,
In the midst of all the craziness & wonder of life...THERE HE IS - LOVING US!
Anne also wants you to know she is, "blessed to be a wife, mother, friend, artist, and interior designer living in beautiful Fredericksburg, Texas." She says, "I am almost positive I have died and gone to heaven as this wonderful place is Heaven on Earth! I count it a true joy to get to help create in any way for Double D!"
