A Long Way From Home

My good friend, Renee has moved a long, long way
from home (home being West Texas).
She is settling into her home (temporary) in North Dakota.
Let me say again-a LONG way from home.

One of the first things she did in her new "land" was
to seek out a place to worship, 
which can be like trying to find a new family
Along the way she took a few pictures 
of some great, perfectly aged churches. 
When I saw her photos on her blog I
asked if I could paint this great window.

The window nor the building is the important thing.
The important thing is worship and the freedom
to gather with others to worship.

But the hour cometh, and now is, 
when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit 
and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship 
him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 
John 4:23-24

Thanks, Renee!

W.I.P. Copper, Grapes and a Pear Watercolor

I wanted to share this little Work In Progress video. 
I absolutely love painting metal! And grapes! And pears! 
Well, you get the idea. I love to paint. 
I haven't painted much in the last week or two. 
There has been a lot of road time; shows, workshops,
conferences, doctors' appointments, etc.
And I have been "fall" cleaning. The cooler weather has
been a welcomed change to the hot and dry summer.
Change is in the air. I have a feeling that our
winter will be as extreme as our summer,except
where the summer was hot and dry this winter
will be cold and wet. We could use the "wet".
Here is the finished work.
Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God!!!
