Nov. 15 Post

30" x 40"
Acrylic on Canvas
This is a painting that I did last night. It was very spontaneous. My Pastor has written a book entitled "Encrimsoned". In the book, he asks "Are you are willing to live a life of daily encrimsoning? Carrying your cross daily - Denying yourself daily - Following Jesus daily". Tonight I attended corporate prayer time as I needed to ask for prayer for a dear brother and a trial we have been in. It truly was a sweet time of prayer. After the session concluded, I approached my pastor and showed him and his lovely wife a photo of my newest painting, and told him the title. I told him that I could not afford $10 a book, but that God had given me the idea of passing copies of the book out during my show at Vista Lights coming up on November 20. He gave me an almost full box of books...76 copies to be exact. I asked. I received. Thank you, Jesus. I hope that God will use me, my art, and the books as His instruments for His own Glory. You will notice that I did not mention my pastor's name...I know that he wants all the glory to go to his Creator!

New Landscape

Acrylic on Canvas with Paper Application
15" x 30"
Paper Portion

This is different. I am having trouble coming up with a title. Feel free to suggest something. There is a story behind it...well, maybe the title should be "A Story Behind Everything"??? There are 3 small red dots under the central tree that you can't see in the photo...for those of you who know my art, the 3 dots represent the Holy Trinity.
Update - And the title is..."Absolution"

"Soft Shore Summer"
Acrylic on Canvas
30" x 40"
This is a commissioned piece by a designer for one of her clients...I hope they will like it...all I was given was the wall color (Quietude - a pale green with a little blue) and that the painting should be very "soft"...well, this is soft and very much so that it did not photograph very well.

Angel's Trumpet

You have probably noticed there have been no garden photos lately...well, that is because the garden has been suffering the late summer blues. My Angel's Trumpets have finally started blooming though. These are really interesting...the buds start out a really deep lemon yellow, then turn almost white, and then open salmon and then blush pinker as they age. The photo has been edited with a "painting" effect. Enjoy!
