Description Hello and welcome to 'Colors Of My Heart' a collection of fine art prints and Canvas selections featuring my original acrylic painting
This colorful painting was inspired by the beauty that lies within us all when we are in JOY...at PEACE...INSPIRED...in LOVE with others, ourselves or our surroundings...in total contentment.
It occurred to me one day that if I could 'see' this beautiful state of mind and emotion, what would it look like? Would it be swirls of vibrant beautiful colors?
I wanted to paint 'our heart' 'our core'. I believe we have 'these colors to paint with' there is no shortage of what we can use. I don't always remember to live like this, or to see my day to day in this way. There are days when all I see, feel and 'paint with' is a blend of gray.....but when I see others in acts of kindness and love, I know the colors are there... vibrant as ever.
I thought perhaps in a small but loving way, this whimsical little face with it's joy, it's glee and it's many swirls of color would remind you of the possibilities and of your true nature! Here's to the inner Picasso's and the discovery of colorful swirls yet to unfold! Love Leila

Hello, welcome to my "Positive Art To Lift Hearts" Fine Art Gallery.
As a recording artist and songwriter, whose music promotes peace, love, unity and celebrates various cultures and their rhythms, I had always expressed myself in this way musically, but had been long inspired to create an art collection featuring original paintings and positive art messages promoting love and the beauty I was inspired by.
I began painting and making music from the beginning but had never thought of my art as having a need to "strike out" on it's own, like a younger child wanting to distinguish itself and "self define". The time had come when this child could not be ignored and called for my attention and love as much as his older sibling "music" LOL
And so here I am, immensely blessed by the opportunity to offer my work and to have an outlet to share this other aspect of myself! It is my hope that the offerings found within, inspire, move, and give birth to a deeper love for yourself...love for others...love for our planet...love for the diversity of our world and promote peace in all its forms, within your lives and the lives of others.
Featured in this gallery, is a small sample of works from my various collections
"BEAUTIFUL ME" - is a collection celebrating the beauty that is you! to inspire self confidence, self empowerment and self love
"FABRICS N FLAVORS OF THE WORLD" - is art inspired by the gorgeous fabrics/art of various cultures. Mexican pottery, Kutch fabric, etc...etc.
"THE OFFERINGS" - is a collection inspired by the desire to give love to others, appreciate, encourage.
There are collections celebrating our planet, "WORLD IN MY HANDS," and others such as "HUMAN TAPESTRY," to promote peace.
My art can be found, not only here as fine art prints and canvas, both framed and unframed, but at the locations below as gifts, Ceramic Art Tiles, Handbags, Jewelry and other "handmade offerings" that will be coming soon to my LEILASWORLD HANDMADE store.
And of course my music...should you wish to find out more, the links are provided below.
Whatever part of my "world" you find yourself visiting, my intention remains the same. May it bring a smile...make you laugh... and brighten a corner of your life. Blessings and in gratitude, Leila
