Texture Tuesday - Grandma's Berries

It's Time for Texture Tuesday. The theme this week
is gardening. These are Grandma's Berries. Actually, I think
they are Papa's. But she and I were in the berry patch to take
this photo. I have cropped it, used a guassian blur, added
Kim's Bentpages edges. If you love playing with your camera
and your photoshop, pop on over to Kim Klassen's Cafe.

Grapes in a Crystal Bowl Watercolor

Beautiful crystal bowl, plump grapes and morning sunshine.
I love this image. I love painting glass. 
This is my first attempt at painting cut or faceted glass
Wet Canvas has 1,000's of great, free images
in their reference library.
It has been a little while since I have made a WIP 
(Work In Progress) video. I thought this would be a
good project to do that with.

I look at these big, fat juicy grapes and think 
about the land that God promised His children...
When they reached the Valley of Eschol, they cut off a
branch with a single cluster of grapes. Two of them
carried it on a pole between them. Numbers 13: 23
Our God is more than enough!

Worship Dance Alliance

Dance With Me! Watercolor 8 X10

Last night I had the honor of being part of Christine Obert's
Worship Dance Alliance Celebration and Graduation.

I got to fly my silk flags with my friends, Keith and Karen.
Joe took pictures for me so we could capture some of
the dances and presentations. 

Julie has been taking dance classes at Christine's

I love this one of Rosetta. She is using my Holy Spirit Fire 
streamers. I was amazed with this image, 
as it looked like fire.
Praise Him with timbrel and dance...
Let everything that has breath
Psalm 150:4 and 6

Better With Age

This is a commission I recently finished for a friend
of mine. It took him years to rebuild this beautiful '57
Chevy. It was a pile of junk when he bought it and now
"Wanda" is better than she was when she came of
the assembly line. Jimmy took a lot of care and great pride
in making her new again, restoring her.
God does the same thing with us. He searches for us,
finds us, sometimes neglected, abused, or left for dead,
Others might see us as not worth the effort but
He sees beyond the faults, beyond the wreckage,
and knows the potential and that we can be
"Better With Age"

If any man is in Christ, he is a new creation: 
old things are passed away and behold all things
are made new.
