“Promise”-Complete


Well I’ve finally finished something.

I feel like I’ve been pulled in 10 different directions and it’s not going to stop yet.

So what have a finished? #2 in the Three Fold Prayer series: “Promise”

Here it is for your viewing pleasure.

I really like the blue on this one. It’s just so rich.

As for the bookmarks yes I am still working on them and I was hoping to post those as well but the darn things take so long to dry.

So they’re not finished yet.

Maybe tomorrow…I dunno.

Well Cheers for now!

Three Fold Prayer & Thanksgiving


Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you all!

I spent all of yesterday baking, cooking and painting. Fun!

So what did I get accomplished you might ask?

Well, I made two pumpkin pies, baked some yams and made stuffing.

Oh and I also finished the watercolor on the “Three Fold Prayer” series.

I was able to finish the writing on the first piece “Persistence” however I haven’t had time to take a picture yet.

You’ll just have to wait until my next post.

Here’s a look at the recently added watercolor layer. Continue reading

Three fold prayer-edited


Alright so after testing out the 195gms paper I find myself un-impressed.

So I’ve decided to re-do the series on the same paper I did the “Life Simplified” series on.

Same size and everything so instead of being 9″x12″ they’ll be 11″x15″ approx.

I’ve also changed the last image to something more suitable.

The series will be based on the three fold concept of prayer presented in Luke 11: 1-13.

Persistence, Promise, Provision

I’ll update once I’ve added the color.

Cheers,

A

“Life Simplified” at a glance


Just thought I’d do a quick post to review the “Life Simplified” series. So far the series consists of 7 pieces.

Each done using watercolor and permanent marker on 11″ by 15″ Cold Press acid free heavy weight paper.

Here they are in the order they were created. Continue reading

#7 of Life Simplified


Create ~ krē-āt
verb
14th century Middle English, from Latin creatus, past participle of creare; akin to Latin crescere to grow te:

1: to bring into existence
2 a: to invest with a new form, office, or rank b: to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior
3: cause, occasion
4 a: to produce through imaginative skill b: design

I’ve finished the last piece I had painted for the series, #7.

From here on I’m back to square one in terms of the creation process.

Interestingly enough 7 emphasizes creation,

so it’s only fitting that I pause here before going on.

I’ll update once I have more images to add. Til then, I leave you with #7 “Create with me.”

#5 of Life Simplified


Sometimes things feel so complicated.

The weight of life weighs heavy on you

and you don’t want to get out of bed

let alone go through another day.

You just pray to God hoping something will change

so you can see the light.

So you can bare the light.

This is where I’ve been.

I want to dedicate this piece to my husband.

Who in my darkest hour

when I didn’t think I could go on

reached out with his heart and saved me.

I love you.

You are my knight in shining armor.

“Save Me” #5 of the Life Simplified series. Continue reading
