smArtee Art Prints

I recently was the lucky recipient of a set of 3 beautiful 5 X 7 art prints, all signed by Robin, the owner and mastermind behind the shop on Etsy called smArtee by smArtee.  Thanks so much to Trendy Treehouse and Mommy's Memorandum for the great giveaway.

I was so impressed with the vibrant and rich colors that Robin uses and her talent in general.  I remember looking at these prints and thinking, "Helena, it's not very often that you see artwork and say to yourself, I really love that."  But that time I did, and so I entered the giveaway.  What are the odds I would win twice?  But that's exactly what happened.  And so now, I've got three prints to put up on my wall in a little theme. The top painting is called, 'Two in A Crazy World', and of course I have the two beautiful birds on the bottom.

I think that we're all thrown into a world that is just so fast-paced and full of change. Many times we don't even have the time to think about our decisions and why we're making them. We have to do things basically with our own best judgment because no one before us has ever had to go through some of the things we go through today.  I look at the painting on the top and the kaleidescope of color and I have to think, yes it's crazy, but it's also so beautiful.  If I can even take just a moment to stop and just catch my breath, like these two birds, I think I will be ready to jump back onto the merry-go-round.

I anticipate that I will hear more of Robin and her great work.  I hope you will all go check out her work and give her a thumbs up on Etsy!
