“Explosive Love” is Art You Love by Elizabeth Traub. When I was thinking of name for my art business I was like every young entrepreneur excited about a new business venture. “Art You Love” is something we have all experienced at one time or another. If it’s not art that makes your heart explode with love maybe it’s your lover, your children, your heart on matters that are important to you.
I love color. Painting has been a passion for me my entire life. Raising a family, running a business and doing the last 30 years of life had me painting furniture pieces late at night during a Lifetime movie. It had me painting in the backroom of my store when I needed a break, alone time, or just needed to work out something in my head. My five kids will always remember the dining room table covered in paints and they could join in.
When I started my first business. I was selling hairbows I made door to door. My heart was exploding with the love of the idea, the love of the process of learning how to sell, the love of knocking on a door and the anticipation of that next sale. I was giddy and excited. My heart exploded with each day making hair bows while my children played. I loved it.
As I finished up this piece I had my first 5 sales and my heart was exploding. “Oh my goodness I am doing this!” were my thoughts. And more layers of paint added because I could not stop adding colors because my heart was, “Exploding Love” all over the canvas.
When you look at this piece. Ask yourself how your heart feels, towards your people, your job, your process for accomplishing something big or small. I hope you have that, “Exploding Love” feeling. Because even it’s it’s for a moment it fuels your heart. Be fueled today with, “Explosive Love”.
