Once Upon a Canvas

Hello there! My name is Becky, and I’d like to share a little story about how Once Upon a Canvas came to be. *** “Bulldozer, digger, dump truck!” “Bulldozer, digger, dump truck!” My nephew Adam shouted the words over and over as he ripped open the gift I gave him in early 2009. My sister-in-law had asked me to paint Adam a piece for his bedroom for his 3rd birthday. Adam had finally realized his older brother had a fun outdoorsy mural on his bedroom walls, while he still had Winnie the Pooh decals on his wall. He wanted a “big-boy” painting. So, as I picked out a blank canvas that was almost as tall as my 3-foot-tall nephew, I couldn’t wait to see his little eyes light up at the sight of the painting. As my creative juices spilled across the canvas, I couldn’t help but wonder if my painting could top any of the toys he would receive. But, when Adam rattled off the name of every construction truck in the painting, it was clear he loved it. That was his little 3-year-old way of saying, “This painting is awesome, Auntie Becky!” Seeing the impact my painting had on Adam reminded me of how powerful art really is. In an age of gadgets and gizmos, it was awesome to find that original artwork superseded Thomas the Train that day. *** From that day forward, I was reminded why I love making art for others. Different mediums and canvases convey an array of emotions. Vibrant paintings express excitement. Serene paintings display a sense of peace. Simple paintings create a feeling of order in a space. And, at first glance, art provides a sense of amazement in the world around us. My creativity goes way back, and I continue to foster it on a daily basis – well almost every day. Following my undergraduate schooling, I strengthened my design skills as a publication designer for six years. Not long after that, I pursued a career in art therapy. All the while, I continue to freelance and shower my creativity on others. As you take a look at my art, you’ll see a blast of creativity. I hope you like what you see and will consider buying a print from my store. Enjoy! Custom-made art is also an option.
