What He Says

This is what's on my pallet.  It's been way too long since I've been in my studio.  Enjoying the day, listening to good music, daydreaming with God, and painting.  I decided to do an underpainting of this still life using water-soluable wax pastels.  Thought I'd just use the complimentary colors to see what happens.  The mood I'm in....I rather be painting large, wild, and with texture and a pallet knife.  Too bad, this is small....we'll see.

The Lord spoke to me about this painting.  So many times when we think about ourselves, we think the opposite of what He thinks.  Our true colors are the ones that he sets to compliment us, and because we have experienced the opposite, it gives us a depth that others don't have.  The depth of understanding and empathy, rather  judgement.  Let's clothe ourselves in what He says.  Amen?

His Love

"His Love"

12"x12" Oil and Cold Wax on Cradled Wood.

This one was lot's of fun.  It has so many layers, and so much drying time.  It was not intentional at all, but God knows that I dedicate my art to Him.  I see the nail, the Rose of Sharon, the Heart, and the Tie that binds us to Him. Bless His Absolute Holy Name, Jesus.

#2 Sing A New Song

#2 of "Sing a New Song Unto Him" Series

#2 of my "Sing a New Song Unto Him" series.  Oil and Cold Wax on Cradled Wood, 12x12".  There is something that I really like about this....the depth of color, the layers, the texture, the depth of the meaning of the scripture:  Psalm 144:9   I will sing a new song to you, my God; on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you.

Is it time to sing a new song?  Is it time to draw a line in the sand, to jump off of the fence, to really live?  The time is now.
