I was so honored to get to paint our elementary campus’s front doors and windows. Their theme this year is the acronym H.A.P.P.Y. which stands for HAVE A POSITIVE PRODUCTIVE YEAR.  What an awesome way to welcome your students every day… With big colorful smiles!  I had so much fun doing this…


My Landscape

I have not painted a landscape such as this in many years. I had a friend ask me to paint the view from the front porch of their daughter’s house who is actually stationed out of the country right now. I prayed and prayed it would look good. I know GOD can do anything—He makes the best landscapes!
Here is the product of prayer and acrylic paint:

Here’s the original photograph leaned on the painting. It’s a blessing to me. I’m def not a professional landscape artist, but this was a fun challenge.




I did not make this, but I think I will.  I love this.  I’m so glad GOD changed my heart.  I’m so overwhelmed by His gift of Jesus and the NEW LIFE we receive, because HE paid it all.  I pray that all will allow their hearts to be transformed!  Amen.




So, I’m an artist.  I LOVE to create.  Painting is my absolute favorite.  I’m also a teacher and some of my students look at some of the things I create and ask me why I didn’t become an artist.  I’m not sure what they are thinking qualifies a person as an “artist,” exactly.  I believe the things I create qualifies me as an artist–the way I think qualifies me as an artist and the things I’ve mastered do as well.

And really, I believe, TRULY BELIEVE, that we are all artists.  When it comes to creating a drawing or sculpture OR other type of artistic creation–some are quite amateur, some are advanced and some mingle in the middle somewhere…out there.   Whatever “level” you find yourself, you can still call yourself an artist.   When it comes to other things besides creating pieces of art, though, I believe you are an EXPERT ARTIST of some kind.  You know there is something you do and you do well.  You have mastered the ART OF [INSERT TASK HERE].  Am I right!?  So, really, we are ALL artists.  You may create a great proposal or budget request or hamburger!   Your piece of art may come in the form of a big sale, mathmatic equation or piece of furniture.  YOU ARE AN ARTIST!

So, go make some art!  🙂
I do believe I WILL!
