Art process: Choose Life

Here, you can see earlier versions of this artwork. It’s cool how God can bring things together. I’m not sure if I should tweak this anymore, but for now, I’m happy with it. This is a digital image that was made spontaneously on Coral Painter and Photoshop. It’s so fun to just play, experiment, andContinue reading “Art process: Choose Life”

Thanksgiving Turkey!

I’m working today, but it’s a fun day! Today we are making turkeys!! I did a lot of prepping for a potential of 72 patients at a psychiatric hospital. Keep in mind that some people come into the hospital for suicide or self-harm, so it is not safe to have a whole bunch of peopleContinue reading “Thanksgiving Turkey!”

Art process: Digital work in progress…

This is a digital work in progress. I don’t like it yet, so I’ll keep working. I started by making a digital painting in Coral Painter 19 and then I added three different artworks of mine (including an alcohol ink painting, an acrylic painting, and a mixed media) and more digital paintings. It’s a littleContinue reading “Art process: Digital work in progress…”

Art process: Explaining the progression of my “Journey” art piece.

This is a mixed media art piece. The final image is digital, but here you can see some of the progression. In the first image, you see an oil pastel drawing with one piece of fiber paper with stars to the left. I layered the oil pastels and then scratched into it to created thisContinue reading “Art process: Explaining the progression of my “Journey” art piece.”

The Gift

I believe the time has arrived for God to bring His promises. They’re his beautiful gifts to His bride which has persevered and waited patiently, holding onto faith despite adversity and affliction. God says “It’s time for the comeback! It’s time for restoration and recompense!” See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springsContinue reading “The Gift”

A Day of Leaves

I went out collecting fall leaves in the neighborhood today. I brought the outdoors inside at the psychiatric hospital today! I let them touch and smell the leaves, and we made art with it. I had 3 bins like this for 4 groups throughout the day. Each group could potentially have up to 15- 20Continue reading “A Day of Leaves”

Overcoming and Truth

Above, are three stages of one art piece shown as digital images with the most recent stage at the top and the oldest at the bottom. Truth and Possibilities were taken with my phone whereas Overcoming was scanned. I added the word Truth digitally to the Truth image. I did tweak the color just aContinue reading “Overcoming and Truth”

Change is Here

I did most of this last night and added the word, “change” to it today. This was made in response to receiving new pan pastels, a set specifically made for portraits with 20 different colors. One of the gifts that I received when I was licensed as a minister on October 1st, was a $200Continue reading “Change is Here”

Surprise Beginnings

For some reason, this reminds me of an ice cream cone. “Surpise Begnnings” was the title that came to me. What’s on my mind is the subject of breakthrough and small beginnings. I titled it “Surprise Beginnings” because sometimes we don’t even notice those small beginnings, but they are surprises from God meant to encourageContinue reading “Surprise Beginnings”

Weird Is As Weird Does

I was in a weird mood. I kind of let loose. This kept changing. I think I needed to vent. I just let the alcohol fall where it wanted for part of the time. I splattered. I dripped. I worked and worked, and worked. I overworked. I destroyed and put back together. It changed aContinue reading “Weird Is As Weird Does”
