CELEBRATING GOD'S CREATION THROUGH ORIGINAL WORKS.
Been working on this painting for a few months. It is a take off of "House of Refuge Beach." It is larger, and has a slightly different view. I worked from a couple of photos I took in the morning as a storm passed by. I was interested in the shadows and highlights on the white foam and in the rocks. Added the birds for more interest.

I have worked on this painting for over a year, off and on. Re-drew him ten times at least! I like to free-hand most of my work, so I tend to do a lot of adjusting instead of just filling in color. I think it gives me more freedom to exaggerate things or change the perspective as needed.
This was fun because his eye was so big and gorgeous, I just had to play it up! And also because I haven't done my namesake in such a long time.
Took one of my abstracts and added this angel to it. Love the way it came together!
This angel is for the kind of joy you can only find (even in hard times) when you lay down your plans and seek the Lord's.
Angels are not like humans and humans do not become angels (according the the holy scriptures). The fallen angels are far out numbered, and we have been given power over them in Jesus name. So when we forgive and pray blessings on others and ourselves, our Father's angels battle for us, helping us overcome the trials and hardships that come against us. They have been given charge over those who seek the Lord.
Just added the canoe to this painting of the Spokane River. There was a bunch of canoes piled up just to the right, so I decided to pull this one over and include it. Didn't want it to take away from the rest of the painting, so I added lots of weeds in front of it. Really like the way it adds more interest to the composition.
This painting is about Retreats and Bible camp. So many life changing decisions and good memories!
Created this painting a few years ago. It is now available in cards and prints!
This is surrealism. Lots of symbolism too. The sunrise represents the new covenant, and the crown of thorns is for the suffering He bore for us to find healing and eternal life. The dove is for the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, who lives in us when we commit to living for him. (Which is not the same as being religious, but living day to day as He leads us, by his strength and power to overcome the hardships we all face.)
Got to do a paint-out a couple of weeks ago! Even though it was extremely hot that morning, it was by far the best plein air (on location) painting I have done in a long time. Way too much fun with my friends from Pennsylvania! Thank goodness for the little pavilion we had for shade and a cooler of ice cold water!
This is an older painting. I did it alla prima, or all at once, it is of Lake Okeechobee. I truly love the texture and color that is unique to knife paintings. Some of my students are doing palette knife beach scenes right now, so I wanted to post this one in response to what we are doing in class. Ready to frame

This drawing won Best of Show in my second year in college. I just made it available in print. It is made up of hundreds of tiny dots. Shadows are created by placing the dots closer and overlapping them at times. Highlights are made by scattering the dots farther apart. Very intricate and detailed work.
I did this large painting a few years ago, and now I just made it available in print. It combines many thoughts and memories from many places. Poured myself into it for a few months. Created entirely from memory! Love the way it came together. Here is what I originally wrote about it:
I have been working on this painting off and on for almost a year now. It is all about contrasts and texture, as far as the technical aspects go.
This painting is far reaching too. Emotionally we all have things that need healing. Sometimes a sunrise or a sunset, a cup of coffee with a friend, or a moment of silence can touch us deeper than anything else at that time. This painting combines some of those ideas: dreams I have had, horses I have ridden, and prayers cried out from the depth of my soul in my most turbulent times. Always God reaches out and heals the hurt a little more.
