A shout out to the lovely people who have encouraged me on my latest artistic endeavor - thank you very much! I've been exploring the making of Canvas Prints and Art Wear from images of my paintings. You have helped me to navigate and take steps forward. It's incredible how far a dose of encouragement will go! So I've added some articles to the collection from landscape and seascape paintings. They bring out the earthy tones and color combinations of the Northern Coastal region. I'll add the links in the comments in case you want to take a look.

Here is a Children's Rash Guard with a design from my painting "Pink Rhodys." Kids are all about color, so this was great fun. Etsy link in the comments.

Oh goodness, I am not a fashion model! I prefer to be at my artist's easel, digging in the dirt or making a little sawdust! But sometimes it is helpful to know how these garments look on real people.
Several years ago, I painted this floral called "Hope Roses." Roses often have multiple meanings, and my favorite meaning for yellow roses is "hope." We can do without many things in life, but we can't survive without hope!
I have wondered from time to time how my paintings would appear on fabric. Recently I found a printing company that makes not only sharp, colorful canvas prints of my paintings but also prints clothing. My athletic daughter and granddaughter introduced me to "Rash Guards." They are stretchy, comfy, and fit snugly. If you entertain the idea of ordering one, consider your comfort level with "snugly" and select the size accordingly.
In the comments, I'll add the link to my Etsy shop for the clothing and the art canvas prints. Thank you to those who have offered kind comments. A word of encouragement goes a long way!

The calendar says "Summer" although it feels like "Fall." I painted some friends gorgeous Dahlia Garden and it is the inspiration behind this Etsy Rash Guard design. The front says "NEVER ALONE" and the back says "IN THE GARDEN WE HAVE THE BEST CONVERSATIONS." https://www.etsy.com/listing/1305091403/colorful-in-the-garden-rash-guard?click_key=0926c3ca965dc48948f6a92540c7f5d830390fda%3A1305091403&click_sum=0fb09293&ref=shop_home_active_1&frs=1

For some time, I have wondered how some of my paintings would appear on fabric. I discovered a company that reproduces vibrant color well and here are some examples. These are Rash Guards. WHAT IS YOUR OPINION? Is there any you would pick over the others? I would also be interested in the opinions of gentlemen on what they would prefer to see on their ladies. There are more choices over on Etsy.com https://www.etsy.com/shop/NehemiahsArt Thank you, friends and family. The term "Rash Guards" started with clothing to be worn under wet suits for surfers. Now they are used as active & athletic wear for all kinds of busy lifestyles. Thanks again! Names on the individual photos.

Behind each artwork is a story. The scene may seem ordinary, but it is often in the everyday things of life that we discover hidden beauty and meaning. Art expresses the deep notions of life.

I am establishing an online store to make canvas prints available that are more affordable and to support the mission of Nehemiah's Art Studio and Gallery which is:

The Story of Nehemiah's Art - "Rebuilding Lives Through Art, Faith, & Community.
I chose the name Nehemiah's Art for my studio because Nehemiah is a story about rebuilding. The dream for this studio came about during a dark time in my life. Throughout that period, I would read Bible stories at night to the sweet five-year-old who occupied my attention in those days. When we reached the story of Nehemiah, the children's Bible said that Nehemiah means "God wipes our tears." I knew then that this was my story. Life can be challenging, but God is compassionate.

So what does this story have to do with an art studio? For one, I have art students from all walks of life. Sometimes my students have experienced a rough road in their journey and learning to draw and paint has been an outlet for them to express their emotions.

Behind each artwork is a story. The scene may seem ordinary, but it is often in the everyday things of life that we discover hidden beauty and meaning. Art expresses the deep notions of life.

I also wanted to establish an online store (through Etsy) to make prints available that are more affordable and to support the mission* of Nehemiah's Art Studio and Gallery.

I'm Penny Fregeau, the artist behind Nehemiah's Art. While creating art has been a lifelong passion for me, I especially love to help others find that creative spark within themselves. With that in mind, First Friday in Fortuna is around the corner! I love that our community creates ways for the people of our town to get together and have fun, support one another, and celebrate summer on the North Coast! First Friday is happening on Main Street on August 5th. If you have a budding art student that would like to join us at Nehemiah's Art for a two-hour workshop, then send me a message. There are a couple of easels still open. From 6-8 PM on Friday, August 5th we will be painting and/or drawing together. Openings are for middle school age and older (for the young, and young at heart). Helpful Hint: Mom & Dad can drop off their student and go enjoy a "date night" downtown. Price of the workshop is $20 for the evening, and this includes art materials which are provided.

What does it mean to "only compete against ourselves"? This is Art Axiom #13 in a video series that pulls together the sayings that I find myself repeating to art students. Competition can spur individuals on to be their best, or it can discourage a person completely, causing them to give up. In the context of creating art I put forth the argument that the best case scenario is to compete with the finest version of ourselves. Art is individual, and no one in the world can create art just like you...it's like a fingerprint! I'd love to hear your comments :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBSo2-ON4zg

"HIS MASTERPIECE. Every artist strives to create what can be called their "masterpiece" - their best work by which others will know them. In Christ Jesus, you are God's masterpiece. Not a mistake, not an accident. God takes you as you are - broken, disabled, or just a plain mess - and refines and chisels away until the person He created you to be - His masterpiece - is revealed. But unlike a gilded statue or painting hung only for admiration, God fashions us to be useful in His Kingdom and to accomplish the work He planned for us from the beginning of time." - Commentary from The Beyond Suffering Bible, Tyndale Publishers
