Bliss with you ~By: Vintage Nina~

This is a painting I did for my hubby for our Anniversary. He works with metal so I added lots of metal elements. some have words on them ~wisdom~love~peace~ wish~ things that remind me of him and the man he is. I LOVE HIM !!!

I used rust from the metal pieces around the eyes.
When he was in the Airforce and in Guam I would find pinnies, and I used them on the side of the canvas.
The guitar stand I got for my hubby from Mike at TheWoodsDontLie he has such beautiful unique handmade wood pieces go to his etsy store and check it out Listing: http://www.etsy.com/listing/113426170/guitar-stand-hand-made
Hope You enjoy!!!

Lunch Box Love ~By: Vintage Nina~

Every day I write a little note to my daughter Isabella. I draw a little something on a napkin and give her a little note of LOVE.


My mom used to write me a note sometimes before school and she would always draw an eye for "I" when she wrote "I love you", so I had to do the same for my baby girl.

Below is an image I made for her that we turned into earrings for her birthday, I can not believe my baby is 10.........where did the time go??? 
 Look at my little budding artist~
The finished product! "Love is in my World"

Maybe you will be inspired to draw a little something and write a little love note to someone you love today!
Happy Day!!! ~Nina

"Know Your Truth" ~By: Vintage Nina~

Hello.......Beautiful, it has been a while since I last posted on my sweet blog space, so I am bringing the Love back!
The last year for me was full of growing.  When you are undergoing treatment to save your life.........you have plenty of time to truly look at yourself, others and grow. I feel through this time I was able to express myself in my art in so many ways. I feel the universe pushing me and giving me signs each and every day to help me along my path. This painting was during a time when the treatment I was on was just simply making me more sick every day, and I was having a hard time doing anything, but she came out.....
I have always loved Frida Kahlo and as I sat in my own pain I had so much more respect for her. Also I felt the Virgin Mary with me, after the loss of my daughter in 2002 the Virgin Mary has been  very important in my life! I had received a message during this time from Mother Mary and I had put it in my Journal and from that came this painting...... 

 The Flowers I made from a Vintage Children's book with layers of ink, paint and glue. I love the colors and the texture.....you know me I can not do art with out dimension and texture!!! Look at her necklace ~ it is made from my Mothers Broach from the 80's......Love it!!!

My message on the painting from Mother Mary:
Open......Break......Breath.......Listen to Your Soul.........You are a Gift.........A Beautiful Child of God!
Know your Truth......Live your Truth........When you do this Life is Easy......You will Enjoy Every Day....Every Moment.........Every Second..........Live in Light and Love!!!
I hope you enjoyed. I made a promise to my sister that I would try to post something on my blog every day for the next 30 days, so.......here I go
