I haven't been taking much time to paint lately, so this was a good one to "kick-out" this week!  I have a few paintings that I'm not quite finished with- it's so hard to get back once you've walked away for a while!  More to come soon!

Confident Faith

After I painted the first wave for my son, I wanted another.  It was really "inside me" and needed to get out.  There is such a connection for me with the ocean and it represents so much- change, storms, peace, calm, faith, perseverance, challenge, courage, and so much more.  It was a great week for painting!

Soli Deo Gloria

Soli Deo Gloria- "to God alone the glory"
My son Alex requested a painting for his 13th birthday.  He really wanted a picture of a wave, and because it was for him, I wanted it to be really special.  This was the first painting I'd done in several weeks, and when the inspiration came, it came like a flood!  I want it to be a reminder to him that no matter how big the waves seem to be, his faith can carry him through.
Happy Birthday Alex!  I love you with all my heart!

Dogwood Blooms

I haven't painted in several weeks due to a lot of other "stuff" going on, so I was very excited to get inspired a few days ago and get rockin' on some paintings!  I've finished 2 others that I'll post later, and started another.  
Most of our Dogwood trees have died over the last few years, but we still have a beautiful one in our side yard.  I took several photos of some branches, so you may see a few more of these!
Yay Spring!
