Door of Hope

There may be updates to this later as God speaks to me more about it. I’m kind of tempted to do more digital work. This is a mixed media collage. Digitally, I just did did auto color adjustment and enhanced the contrast. I added the “Juno” filter from Instagram. It might be fun to doContinue reading “Door of Hope”

Crossing the Jordan

I see us crossing from a place of hopelessness and despair to a place of promise; a place of answered prayers; a place of victory. We are crossing from a  barren, empty place of affliction and bondage to a place of freedom, bounty, and fruitfulness.  After I made this spontaneous art piece I noticed theContinue reading “Crossing the Jordan”

Testing out my new camera.

Me (age 51), Lilah (my grandaughter, age 7), Mt Trashmore Park, Gosnold Park, and my new camera. I tried it out today for the first time.

I wanted it to be playful, spontaneous, and whimsical….Its likely to change entirely. Its evolving. Perhaps now it looks a little heavier, but its not done. I will goContinue reading “Playful”

If I were a landscape

If I were a landscape, there would be a lot to take in; it might seem to be confusing at first and even a bit bewildering. There would be odd juxtapositions in the landscape; things you wouldn’t expect to go together and even contradictions. There would be a complex cityscape intermingled with a vast expanseContinue reading “If I were a landscape”

Just Be

Poem not sure of date, maybe January 2020. My heart be still. My heart be still. Sometimes you must stop. Sometimes you must be real. Not trying to impress anyone…Not trying to be anything I’m not… Feeling something down deep inside of me trying to come out. Longing for words, and forms, and shapes…longing toContinue reading “Just Be”
