Renee Ortiz Studios

I am jumping back into the world of art --mostly abandoned for the glorious task of raising my kids. With two off in college now and just a year and a half left with my last, an aspiring ballerina... after years of homeschooling and pouring myself into helping God shape these young lives, I find myself at a rather non-unique crossroads. What is next? So instead of waiting to the last straw of this emptying nest, I decided to tiptoe back into the art cravings that God has planted in my soul. (Whoa! that's a mouthful!) April 2012 I challenged myself to completing a painting a day-- and I've done it! I can't go to bed without this finished-- which is sort of neat. However the art is starting to pile up around me! *Grin* Recently I have launched "on my heART", a division of my art that I'm hoping God will use. Everyday, my heart is broken by children dying from lack of clean water, women who are forced into slavery, orphans and discarded lives... I want to help them all, but lack the resources. I know that am here for a reason, and figure that with the artistic gifts that God has blessed me with, I can create awareness and perhaps raise money for some of these causes. For any painting that God has placed on my heART, the revenue derived from original or prints will be donated directly to the charity organization associated with it. So life is good. Joy is found. Here I go! Come along with me. I love the friendship and support. Renee Ortiz Studios joined Society6 on October 21, 2013
