SUPERBOWL : TREASURE MAP OF HOUSTON

houston-super-bowl-li-logo-october-2014_133624Visiting #Tx? If you need recommendations from a native Houstonian as to where to go eat and drink or sight see in #Htown, look no further. Lex Lumiere teamed up with her mom J (the petite feisty foodie) to create a free Houston Treasure Map: treasure-map-of-houston of the city she grew up in so you could enjoy some of their favorite places. The printable version of the map is here. If you want the artsy version, where she actually scribbles artwork on your paper, you either have to catch the artist at the Okra Charity Saloon where 100% of restaurant proceeds go to local charities or at another Super Bowl event, if you can. 😉  Enjoy exploring Houston through the perspective of a local Texas artist, it’s kind of like walking in the artsy footsteps of Frida Kahlo or Picasso….

Please consider making a Love Offering in exchange for our services, your support helps us continue doing work that helps and blesses others.

CAPTURE YOUR LOVE STORY

military-couple-kissing

When my fiancé passed away unexpectedly and quiet suddenly, I realized the importance of capturing a Love Story. It is easy to take the time we share with the people we love for granted.

Kahlil Gibran’s poem, On Love says it best;

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, 
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth. 
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart. “

It has always been a natural curiosity of mine to ask couples or their parents, ” How did you first meet? “ If you stop and think about it, it takes approximately 24 people, actual couples meeting, connecting and falling in love for YOU to exist. Yes, your parents, each of their parents (your grandparents,) and their parents (your great-grand parents) and their parents etc… What are the realistic odds of falling for someone considering all the factors that have to fall into place for things to work?  If you have ever spent time in the dating world, real connections are rare and are not to be taken for granted. Consider for a moment, what was the spark that connected you together as a couple? Now what about the rest of your family ancestry? I find it fascinating that there is no such thing as coincidence but an underlying universal synchronicity to life, which is where this art series originates from; the chemistry of love connections.

Museums often have painted portraits of people hans solo above a fire place mantle but what about of a couple, a painting that captures the ‘ spark ‘ of your #LoveStory. This is your opportunity to capture the romance of your favorite #Wedding or #Engagement photo in a custom #Painting, to own #Art that is personal to you.

Currently I have a rare Limited Edition contract with Groupon to paint 100, 20″ x 24″ Paintings for $500, normally $1000. Signed by me, the artist and it includes a Certificate of Authenticity. (COA)   Limited time offer to own an original painting that embodies your Love Story in a work of art.
