Create in me...


This is Tuesday, but I am going to do an art blog today...I think I'm finished with Staci's painting. I say I think because I just don't know if I might get one more chance before thursday night to put some last minute touches on it. If I don't, than it is finished. :) I am not sure why, but I want it to almost look, "unfinished" mainly because that is how we are with God, as the song says, "he's not finished with me yet". So, I feel as though, painting what I think about Staci, means that God is not finished with her and there will always be more to paint.

Hopefully I will have something else to blog about tomorrow, if not I know I will be posting a special blog soon about the book, Holy Vocabulary by Micheal Kelley. Stay tuned!

Stirred not Shaken


So I've begun a painting for Staci, as a housewarming gift. I have the first layer almost finished. I paint in layers, I suppose most people do, if they know what they are doing. You don't just start slapping paint on, all the time. There is a place for that, but when you're really trying to be conceptual and real about a painting, you have to start inside. Inside your heart, your mind, inside a sketchbook or a scrap piece of paper that you had nearest you when the inspiration came. Either way, inspiration strikes and you are able to begin putting your emotions on canvas. I think that is part of the reason I love art so much is because I am such an expressive person.

Psalm 51:10
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
So here is the first part of a journey I'm on to create something that reflects what I see God doing in my sister.

A look back...






I love going through some of my older digital art pieces, mainly because they tell me the story of where I've been and things that have been meaningful to me. It takes a photograph and makes it into much more than just a photograph, but a journal in digital form.





I suppose that is enough for now. Just staying creative and keeping myself in tune to the things I enjoy. Hope you can find some enjoyment in these pieces.
