It's pretty amazing to see how a connection with one friend creates a connection with a new friend. People come into your life for a reason and it's amazing to see how those connections come to be.
One of my sweet friends introduced me to Lizzy Ragsdale and I'm so happy that she did! Lizzy is a local Nashville Artist who creates one-of-a-kind paintings...a piece that is tailored specifically to fit your vision.
Lizzy and I began chatting many months ago and at the time we (my family) were in transition. We knew that we were going to be moving, however we did not know where we would end up settling nor did we know what our home would look like. I had lots of ideas and a vision for our new home but it was hard to see those ideas through until we actually laid eyes on what is now our beautiful new home.
As a young family, we never truly invested in any artwork for our previous homes. We had a few things but nothing of significant meaning or of any real value. We actually ended up parting with most everything before buying our new home...we wanted a fresh start.
I knew from my initial conversations with Lizzy, and after visiting her website to review some of her work, that a one-of-a-kind painting of hers was just what our future new home would need. So once we got settled in our new home and brought in a few pieces, such as our living room rug, I reconnected with Lizzy and we picked back up where we left off. It was time to move forward with having her create a piece of art for us!
We started talking about colors, etc and I shared a few pictures of our living room rug knowing that I wanted to tie in some of the colors from this rug as well as neutral colors to match the surrounding environment. I knew Lizzy would take my feedback and create a masterpiece, which she did!
I am in love with our one-of-a-kind painting that was created just for our home. I haven't named it, maybe Lizzy has, but I can tell you that every time I look at our painting I think about God's beautiful creations and how amazing He is. It makes me think of those many moments that I've personally looked up at the sky to see pinks, golds, and blues as the sun sets...those moments of peace and reflection. Those moments where I'm reminded of how great God is. These are the feelings that our painting evokes...it's just perfect.
So if you are looking for a unique, beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece of art for your home or even as a gift for someone else, I highly recommend that you consider working with Lizzy Ragsdale. She truly understands her client's vision and makes it come to life on canvas! I'm such a huge fan and I'm sure we will be adding additional pieces of her art to our home in the future.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
