Abstract Art Fall Pumpkins

Thanksgiving is a few days away which means the fall season is coming to an end. I want to share one last fall project with you before the Christmas festivities kick into full gear. Instead of a DIY tutorial, I will show you the abstract art pumpkins I created to decorate my coffee table.

I used papier-mâché pumpkins, regular craft paint, and a little creativity to make these abstract decorations. When I first purchased these pumpkins, I imagined covering them in fabric or glitter. My goal was to create an unconventional fall craft that did not include autumn colors or patterns.

I was randomly scrolling through Instagram and found two unique nail art designs. The first was cow print and the other, bold geometric shapes. I decided to recreate the designs on the pumpkins rather than my nails.

Holiday Gift Guide: Sharifa Creates Art

playtime sm (1)

With Christmas being less than a month away, now is the best time to purchase gifts for friends and family. Typical presents include pajamas, savvy electronics, and gift cards. But, have you ever considered giving artwork as a gift? 

I have an art business named Sharifa Creates Art. I started it three years ago to sell my original abstract paintings. Over time I’ve come to realize that visual art is more than just something pretty to look at, it can have a positive or negative spiritual impact. I create my paintings with the intention of sharing joy, encouragement, and the good news of Jesus Christ! All of my paintings are created in a worship environment. Before they leave my hands, they are prayed over and anointed for the purpose they will have in your life. 

This year buy a Christmas present from Sharifa Creates Art! Gift a canvas painting to the art collector in your life or use an art magnet to stuff a stocking. Your loved one will have a one-of-a-kind painting that no one else owns. Artwork from Sharifa Creates Art is the perfect fit for any space – from office cubicles to gallery art walls.

Black Girl Magic Art Market Recap

It’s been a long time coming, but I finally had the chance to write this blog post! At the end of July, I participated in the Black Girl Magic Art Show and Market at The Insomnia Gallery in Houston, Texas. This was my first art market since graduating from college. Today, I’m talking all about my experience.

Prior to learning about this event, I was taking a Bible study class called Chase The Lion. This class encouraged me to pursue God’s dream for my life and the fears attached to them. God showed me that it was time to step outside of my comfort zone. I began praying for an opportunity to participate in an art show or market. It was a struggle for Continue reading “Black Girl Magic Art Market Recap”
