Giving Back

We all need to give back a little...  Uganda, Africa gave me so much the three years that I traveled there.  The heart of those people taught me so much.  The Spirit of God that reigns in people is so powerful, and resonates in my soul.  I'm doing this 16x20 watercolor in order to donate to raise funds for the children of Uganda.  Last year, my painting brought a nice amount of money, and I'm believing this one will, too.  I'll update the progress throughout the week.

22"x28" Ink on Yupo

     This one is finished.  I worked a few days on the 30 in 30 challenge.  You'll have to read the blog below for all the tidbits concerning this painting.  It's a great story, and will be shipped off in the next few days.  I'm pretty pleased with it.

Work in Progress

Work in Progress

I've been commissioned to paint a memorial type painting for a young woman that lost her baby.  I've been seeking the Lord for a couple of weeks, mulling it over in my mind.  The woman's sister in law (who commissioned me), mentioned that when she would see a Cardinal, she would be reminded of her baby.  Somehow, I knew the cardinal had to be in the painting, but I just couldn't feel peace about painting a pretty little cardinal eating out of a bird feeder or sitting on the fence.  Yesterday, the Lord showed me that this baby, in full Spirit is worshiping the King of Kings with fullness,  joy, and wild abandon.    I could just see Creed fulfilling his purpose in heaven.  It doesn't help with the loss and pain, but it does help knowing that he really is in the arms of Jesus.  I was just reminded this morning (after painting yesterday), that the scripture that this momma has held dear to her heart, is I Samuel 1:27-28.  I read it this morning, and was blessed beyond measure...that,  "I heard from the Lord", because it reads...."And he worshiped the Lord there."  Stay tuned, as it's not quite finished.  I can't wait to get to it!

"Fire Starters"

"Fire Starters"
Although I saw this 30 in 30 challenge coming, there's just not much I can do about it.  I've started a new job, flying pipeline patrol.  The days are pretty long and very "high alert-ish".  I'll be painting on my days off only, cut at least it's something.  I did this one on Sunday, during worship.  It sold before I could finish it.  I've learned...when they want it, let it go!  

Day one of the 30 in 30.
