Simple Sunday with Artist Chris Brandley

Welcome to Simple Sunday!


Tonight we are featuring a piece of art by artist, Chris Brandley from Keller, TX – United States

This is her bio:

I grew up in a military family, and had the opportunity to visit and live in many different cultures around the world. My art reflects my travels and life experiences.

I have loved creating art for as long as I can remember. My college major was in Visual Arts at Baylor University in Waco, Tx. where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1989, with a certification in art education. My career began by teaching middle school art in the public schools for 11 years while I painted murals on the side. Taking a leap of faith, I resigned from teaching, and started my own business (‘Creative Wall Designs’) in 2002, creating murals and decorative painting in residential and commercial establishments.

I am also very passionate about painting with oils and acrylics on canvas, and have sold these along with prints to collectors locally, as well as nationally and internationally.

I am truly blessed to be able to do what God created me to do, and I give Him all the glory!†

  3. ANGEL AIR

    Little angel dressed in white
    descended through the bright Spring light,
    touched the ground where seeds lay cold
    so they would grow upon the wold.

    With firm but gentle love caress
    she touched the flowers’ petal dress
    and as their blooms spread to the sky
    sweet fragrance was set on the fly.

    Wafting across hill and dale,
    divine odors fixed their sail
    anointing air with angel’s breath
    till autumn chill brought flowers’ death.

    Inspired by the artpiece “Stop and Smell the Flowers” by Christ Brandley

    Thankful to Chris Brandley for such beautiful art to write to :love: :love: :love: :love:
    I type it in can read then apply as is too, light..hummm Gonna have to go bold
    Memories With You Grew

    When little the flowers are as tall or taller than you
    To stop and smell making life true taking away the blues
    I haven`t a clue why this is true
    Just me being little and love smelling flowers as I view

    Now grown and big I lean over you
    Stopping to smell…I may pick a few
    I love the memories within they grew
    Sweet scents of past refreshing and new

  5. PRETTY LITTLE MISSY

    ~

    Flowers pick right from the garden
    The smell so sweet
    Colors pretty to see
    Little hands did pick
    Pretties picture did see
    All dressed in spring colors
    Rosy cheeks and a happy smile
    Makes remembrance a keep sake to be
    To see pretty little Missy all a glow in pearly white

  7. Once upon a time there was a little girl in white.
    Susan was able to see the small things in life .
    She had no worries when she stopped to smell the tulips .
    Little Susan fell in love with the bright colors.
    A stander by shot the picture.
    Reminded him of early days with his own daughter.
    For he knew he was a great father.
    He stared for awhile.
    For he saw something in this child’s spirit .
    He saw in his digital camera how special Susan truly was .
    Susan never noticed the man.
    She was busy loving the warm day and the flowers .
    That what child grace really is .

    ***********Rose for Mother************
    For you see, soon is Mothers’ Day And I can’t
    visit my mom to give her a rose, She is so far
    in heaven.For it wasn’t very long ago The angels
    came and took her home.So I’m picking some roses
    from the garden for my mom grave. And tell her
    presence and love have always been there then and now,
    Everything in her nature is to only care.
    With every soft hug and kiss The world seems more beautiful
    and blessed.Washes my clothes for me,
    tickles my toes for me,giggles and talks with me,
    and also goes on walks with me,Says “sweet dreams
    to me,Sings sweet songs to me,I am glad she belongs
    to me. want tell her we’ll meet again someday And
    we’ll pick roses together.

    “Stop and Smell the Flowers” by Chris Brandley

    PRECIOUS CUPS OF PEACE

    Sweet cups of springtime nectar,
    translucent in the sun,
    bring joy to my heart,
    as I come here to the garden
    to admire each and every one,
    sipping a bit of golden nectar
    with the honeybees
    and butterflies
    who dance among
    the tulips growing
    in the garden
    and glowing
    in the springtime sun.

    And as I stop here
    for just a moment or two
    to share in the beauty
    and to witness the scene,
    my heart is bathed
    in the nectar that flows
    from Mother Nature’s
    precious cups of peace.
