The Gathering

"The Gathering"
28"x22" Oil and Mixed Media
Not priced

     Oh boy am I having some fun!  I'm experimenting away and enjoying the process!  I love the mood exhibited by the body postures and the elongated shapes.  The colors were strategically  used in order to cause a "pop"!  What does it say to you?  
     Anxiously awaiting the May issue of Visual Language Arts Magazine, in which some of my pieces will be published!  Dreams come true!

28"x22" Oil and Mixed Media
Contact me for Purchasing information

     What does it feel like on the other side of the battle?  Do you ever feel exhausted and beat up?  Bruised, scarred, and shaken?  I painted this after coming through several of those battles, and unknowingly just on the verge of yet another.  The covering of the Lord is my veil; my strength.  This is not a look alike self portrait at all, but one in which I hope portrays the essence of "coming through".  I hope you like it.  Don't forget to watch for my work that will be published in the May issue of Visual Language Arts Magazine!


"All Encompassing Lion of Judah"
28"x22 Oil on Canvas
"Warrior Spirit"
9"x11" Oil on Oil Canvas Paper

     These are a few more of my warrior series.  The Lion was painting in 2014, and he is still one of my favorites.  Someday, he will be sold and will take up residence in someone's home, but for now he  hangs as a gentle reminder of Jesus, and what he does for me.  He is both gentle and fierce.  The GREAT NEWS is that I just got notified that some of my pieces will be published in the May issue of Visual Language Arts magazine!  It's a dream come true for me, and the personal email from the editor will always be a treasure.  Look for it coming soon!

Deliverance Warrior

"Deliverance Warrior"
40"x30" Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

     Have you ever felt like you were in a war zone?  Well, my family certainly has been!  I created this piece while doing spiritual warfare for a loved one.  Every energetic line was a decree, a cry, or a prayer.  Over the past several months I've found myself painting in a series of warriors.  Thankfully, the battle belongs to the Lord, and one way that we fight is to stand our ground for truth and what's right.  I've enjoyed these vibrant colors and the large canvas.  I've experimented with different brushes to cover the canvas quickly, as these paintings are done during a worship setting, usually at church and sometimes finished in my studio.  
Ephesians 6:12
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
