Dios te Ama
Posted on 25 April 2010
I have a dear friend who is a fantastic artist.Her name is Anne. She is just one of those people that can pick up anything and make something wonderful from it - and look out if she is picking up a paint brush!Â Years ago, she painted a fabulous wall mural in our guest bath here at the ranch.Â It is a winding, tuberous botanical that she aged and made to look a hundred years old.Â Amazing. Anyway, I was working on the spring collection and came across this 10 pesos note that someone had scrawled "Dios te ama" on.Â I loved it and asked Anne to create a watercolor collage for a t-shirtÂ based on the pesos' message, "God loves you". The only guidelines I gave her were these:
- include the 10 pesos note,
- have a handmade Mexican craft feel,
- and send a message.
See, isn't she fantastic?!So we took Annes' artwork and 'Double D'd' it up to make the, what else, Dios te Ama Tee. Here is what Anne has to say about her inspiration and thoughts behind designing this piece:
Could it be that Iâ€™ve come full circle in my heart and mind and once again believe as a child that simple, trusting belief that: Jesus loves me this I know....and everything else is secondary?and,
In the midst of all the craziness & wonder of life...THERE HE IS - LOVING US!. Anne also wants you to know she is, "blessed to be a wife, mother, friend, artist, and interior designer living in beautiful Fredericksburg, Texas."Â She says, "I am almost positive I have died and gone to heaven as this wonderful place is Heaven on Earth!Â I count it a true joy to get to help create in any way for Double D!"
