I had a sense of Christ coming out of the tomb - a sense of resurrection and restoration.  May we walk in that resurrection power of His love and grace today.

The Father's Heart

This painting was done to express the great love God has for his children. I think many people have not experienced the love of God and so they think they don't need Him, or they think wrongly about who He is. I have experienced God's love in so many ways - great and small. I know He loves me and I know He loves you. Take some time today to tell God you love Him. If you don't know for sure if He loves you - ask Him.

Dancing Before the Lord

This painting came as I was praying for my daughter. She is a wonderful dancer and very musical. The figure just seemed to happen in the center as I was thinking about her. Different colors are beginning to represent things to me. Red is God's love and Jesus's blood shed on the cross for our sins. Light blue represent the Holy Spirit. Yellow and gold represent the glory of God. I was listening to a new album - You Make me Brave from Bethel Music.

I felt the Holy Spirit wanted me to turn my paper so it would be in the portrait position to give me room to move. This one just sort of popped out in a short 15 minutes. The initial movement formed the structure of object that seems to go up and up. Lots of energy and color in this one.

Going Home 36" x 48" watercolor crayons on paper

This one was full of energy and lots of swirls and organic shapes. Then all the vertical lines seemed like people walking into the light of Heaven. You can see that I am still using 4 pieces of paper taped together to make one large surface. When trying a new process I always look for the cheapest way to do something before buying any new supplies, making sure I will stick with the process. So after this painting I ordered drawing paper (100 lb weight) that comes in rolls of 36" x 10 yards. I now cut my paper to size. I also found a water soluble crayon that can be ordered by individual colors instead of just buying a whole set.

New Paintings

 I have been spending some time painting, during my prayer time, while listening to worship music. At first it was difficult to start, because I didn't know what would happen. This is the first "painting". I used crayons and this took about an hour to feel like I was finished. I used 4 large sheets of drawing paper taped together so this is about 36" x 48". I call this one Awakening. It really felt like God was awakening me to a new level of worship with the Holy Spirit helping me.

 This is the second one. It was finished in just  a few minutes - may ten or fifteen minutes. I call this The Holy Spirit Hovering.
 This one really surprised me. The building shapes came first, done with a purple water-soluble crayon. Then everything else surrounding the "city" happened. I switched to water soluble crayons which give a more painterly feel. I draw with the crayons first and then use a brush with water. This is A City on a Hill. Revelations 21
