Footprints in the Sand

A lady approached me to create one of my 20by20 canvases, using warm colours and the popular “Footprints in the Sand” story as inspiration.
(Go HERE for a full account.)

While I prefer to work without boundaries, I really do love to step inside a customer’s heart and soul and bring that intention to life. This lady is very religious and caring and lovely and delightful.

After I finished the background, I sat for quite a while with the quote and scribed maybe a dozen sentiments. I needed to think about what that quote meant to her, how it has helped her in difficult times and why she holds that story close to her heart at all times.





And I think I chose the right one because she absolutely loved it.



Thank you Kerry for allowing me to create this beautiful piece for you and trusting me with your story.

xx Giovanna

  1. This is stunning work Gigi. I love what you have done with the Prima flowers. I have many jars of these and I am in the process of cleaning out my craft room. I was going to get rid of them but I think you’ve swayed me not to. 🙂
    btw – I got your email. Sorry I haven’t responded yet. I am not working right now so I’m sure we can work out a time to meet and chat. 🙂

    1. Hey Suze, thanks very much. I was in a similar boat with all the flowers left over from scrapbooking days. If you have time there’s a video on my Vimeo channel on using up the flowers and gelatos (but you can just use acrylic paint or watercolours). Only 2 weeks until school holidays!
