At Show Offs Art, our goal is to provide fun, funky inspirational art and gift products to help you “Show Off” a little of who you are and what you believe.
We hope our art with Scripture provides some encouragement or a reminder that there is a plan for your life and everyday is worth celebrating.
We started Show Offs Art to encourage other mom’s and their families. We find our inspiration and challenge in the Book of Deuteronomy:
Write these commandments that I've given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.
Deuteronomy 6: 6-9 (The Message)
Every piece we do has a “story” behind it and our desire is that the art serves as an inspiration and encouragement to your family. Our hope is that by having Scripture all around your house; it will “get inside” you and your children.
Show Offs Art began a few years ago with one piece of art. The “Heart and Globe” with the text of John 3:16 was actually created following the inspiration of another similar painting. (See photo)
The painting which inspired the Show Offs Art “Heart and Globe” was originally painted by then 11-year-old Madison, a mentally and physically disabled girl from Tennessee. Right before Christmas, Madison was painting a picture of a heart as a special gift for her Dad. Just as she was finishing up the “heart” painting, Madison turned and picked up a big brush covered in turquoise paint and added her own final “touch.”
This last-minute addition to her painting was the large circle painted over top part of the completed heart. Although the final painting was quite different from the original plan, Madison’s dad loved the gift. Then as he looked closer at the painting, with the big “heart” and smaller blue-green “globe” he said, “This is a cool visual of John 3:16, for God so loved the world. We think of the world being so big, but God’s love is so much bigger than the world.”
Now the “Heart and Globe” design, inspired by Madison’s original work, has become the centerpiece of all we do at Show Offs Art.
