I have recently started selling my artwork, which is exciting and super encouraging! There is great joy in knowing that someone else loves something I made. Who wouldn't feel happy about that?! However, I feel like a little piece of me is being sent off when someone walks away with a painting. I see my heart and soul go out the door! But, I know that the person giving my artwork a new home has connected with it in some way. They hopefully feel a bit of what I was feeling when I created it. I like to think that happiness and peace and love flow out of these paintings every time they are looked at. I sound like such a Hippie when I say that, but I seriously hope and pray that is the case! I feel inspired by God when I paint, and I know that my love for Him is poured out on to the canvas and I am my happiest. I love creating. I also love giving! There is nothing quite like being able to give to someone else and be the answer to a need or the solution to a problem. That is why my husband and I set up the Pflug Family Giving Fund. It is a donor advised fund that is managed by the National Christian Foundation. (NCF) By depositing proceeds from artwork sales directly into the fund, I am able to increase our giving by almost 50%! We can then request grants to be sent out to any charity or ministry that we want to support. It is pretty awesome! So I get double the benefit- the thrill of selling a painting, and the joy of spreading the blessing to others. I hope that my buyers will be inspired to live generously....it really can change your life!
