Interview with Beautiful Bev

I am delighted to introduce a fellow artist-blogger that I have had the good fortune to get to know through joining Kelly Rae's e-course in Taking flight as an artist. Let me present you Beautiful Bev who blogs at Her writing in her blog is always soul-nourishing and a comfort to my heart as she reminds her readers to have hope, faith, peace and love. Bev's graceful spirituality is reflected in both her words and her art.

Come check out some of her gorgeous and uplifting art pieces below!

You can find more of Bev's art to inspire you and fill you with love and faith of God in this link.

1.) Your work shows your deep love and faith for God. What kind of message do you wish to spread out through your painting and what kind of positive impact do you wish your artworks have on people who come across them?

Before I get started, I would like to thank you for doing this interview. I am so happy to have gotten to know you through Kelly's e-course and this community of bloggers. The message I spread out through my paintings is that God is a god of love, hope, compassion and in Him we live, and move, and have our far as having a positive impact, I hope that those who see my art find encouragement, support, validation, just feeling that they are important...

2.) What are amongst the bestest insights or lessons you've gained from joining Kelly Rae's 'flying lessons'?

Kelly's class really helped me deal with fear. Fear was keeping me from moving forward. I realized through a lot of what she shared of her experience, that I am just a girl like anyone else, that I can make beautiful art, and that people would want to buy it.

3.) What kind of action(s) has the e-course propelled you to take?

To really tighten things up with my Etsy shop, which I had opened before I took Kelly's improve the appearance, and work diligently on getting traffic to my blog and to my shop.

4.) Do you have any words of wisdom for those pursuing their artistic goals? What are they?

If you dream it, you can do it. Really. YOU CAN. A year ago at this time, I wasn't even making art....and while my shop is not going gangbusters yet, I fully anticipate that with the hard work I am putting into it, God at the helm, it will all happen in good time.

5.) What is your definition of happiness?

A deep, abiding relationship with God is my definition of happiness, for without Him I have nothing. He is what makes my life and all that happens in it possible.

6.) How does your family inspire your artwork?

Just through our daily interactions! I think through our relationship with our family members we are inspired...the emotions and feelings that come about as a result of those interactions often inspire me to create an art piece.

7.) Describe an ideal day of art-making you've experienced or wish to have.

For me an ideal day is one with no interruption, all the ideas just flow and come out on the canvas as perfection(nothing ends up in the trash!!!)...I have had days like that, but not as many as I would like. One ideal day(or two) I would like to experience, and have not, would be that of an art retreat. That is a desire of my heart, and I have been praying about it...

8.) Do you have a blogger(s) that inspire you? Do share with us their links.

Oh my gosh, there are so many, but check these few out:

Thank you dear Bev for letting us have a close glimpse into your art and heart.

  7. Eva-this is such a great interview-such thoughtful questions...and I love Bev's art. It was a pleasure to read and savor the beautiful work.
    I want to support you in your time of hardship-I don't know what you are going through and can all seem so overwhelming, so alone. This book -Broken Open-has been a blessing, a gift...I can't even begin to tell you. It is written from the heart and has the most amazing stories of suffering and transformation. Of what it means to be human and how we can use pain for the many gifts it brings. I know it is difficult in the moment-but if we surrender to our life...I think there is wisdom in
