Who's Ready for Spring and Warmer Weather!
I know I sure am...late February in TN, we start expecting some mid 50's, but for a week now we have been cooped up inside because a relentless layer of thick ice and now more on top of it tonight as I type! I did get a little productive painting done for upcoming Easter classes at Faithful Strokes and some beginning ideas for summer camps.
These two grids were some I had left over from the previous year and Christmas. Let me know if you are interested in any of them.
New, original swirly cross design with chevron background; completely customizable!
Here were my new designs for Faithful Strokes for the Valentine's/end of winter season this year
Here's a remake of the popular 'I Will Praise You in this Storm" We do plan on having a new, fresh line of scriptural/representative art COMING SOON!
Here is one I love for the simplicity in the foreground, yet intricacy in the background.
Three piece set of black and whites with burnt orange umbrella.
Original chevron painting with an encouraging quote from a friend.
Original painting of a beach sunset.
Cute family tree idea a customer saw on Pintrest.
Well, these are just a few of the paintings I've done since I posted several pieces back in Februrary! Where does the time go! Here's one of my sweet boys...growing up and getting awards at school!
I did get to go to Winter Jam this year again which was amazing!!
Posting all this, although very random and just trying to play catch up, it makes me feel really blessed. I get to stay home most of the time to be with Colton and available to go to school related stuff with Preston. Then I get to teach art for Faithful Strokes while getting to do custom work on the side. The Lord has tremendously and perfectly provided this year and continues to amaze me. I felt a little bummed when I got on here because I was behind and haven't had as many orders as I had hoped, but going through my pics made me realize, I really have been uniquely blessed by the Lord in every area of my life. Just because my life is not just like someone else's or they have more "success", etc doesn't mean I'm not exactly where the Lord wants me. Plus, no one has the exact blessing I do and, for that, I am thankful. God bless you all. I am thankful for you as well!
