His mercies are new every morning

One night I had just this urge to paint so I did. I did this with very bad light and didn't think it looked good. I had such a hard time while painting this not sure why but when I finished it and stood back to look and it. I was amazing how it turn out. You see during this time I was struggling with feel like I was not ever going to achieve what I wanted to achieve. I was dealing with feeling inadequate in being a wife, a mom, a sister, a friend and even as a leader. I even thought I would never be a good painter. So when I started this painting I went with an attitude of lets see if I can do this. So when I step back I saw God telling me that I could do ANYTHING with him. I soon became overwhelmed with his love and his goodness. I remember feeling so encourage with something I painted. It was a picture of his mercies are new every morning. From then on out I knew I could do it. Just had to take it one day at a time. Now I painted this picture in December and a lot has happen and change and its been a hard three months but I still know I can do it. I can still run this race and follow him all the days of my life!!! Enjoy!

Don't they look delicious!

So I have done pretty good with painting one painting a week. Last week I got to pain another painting. You see I have painted since I was in the 3rd grade. That's when my mother put me in an acrylic painting class. In taking that class I was introduced to a new desires in my life. From then on I always wanted to paint in fact one of my best Christmas was when my parents got me this acrylic pain kit. Well when I was in the 5th to 7th grade I was home schooled and lost interest in fact that would be one of my dark years. I was very rebellious and was very angry at my parents. Then I went to Evangel Temple in 8th and 9th grade. I took Art and it sparked that desire once again. For my 10th and 11th grade I went to Grand Prairie High School and continue to take Art classes. Well if you don't know I became a mother at 17 and then never painted again. Then one Wednesday nite at my church my friend gave a word for those who loved art r wanted to pursue art more to raise their hands. She prayed over us and that's when God lite that fire in me again. Slowly I bought some supplies. Then finally after hearing God tell me over and over again make time for painting I did it. Now I know I can do it again and slow everything is coming back to me. So I purchased some painting books to teach me new and remind me of somethings so this is one painting I did from a book. I really need to master the shading thing. Making an object 3d is not something I have ever been good at. But I do know with practice I will get better.

I am so proud of myself!!!

Well I am trying my hardest to get back to painting but being a mom of three is quite hard especially when they want to paint with you. :) I have such a heart for art. Well I follow several art blogs so yesterday I decided to paint. I need to start so I can sell my painting in the future but I got to practice before I even consider it. I look in a magazine to see what I could paint and found a picture that would so go in Angela's bathroom. So I decided to paint it as a present for her. It didn't take to long so that was always a good thing you know with three kids and all. Here is a pic. I am so proud of how it turned out. :)

Please give me some feedback good or bad I want to improve!!!

Seeds of Faith

Well here is a painting I did after my quiet time with the Lord and yes it was at 230am. I have had a rough day so I got into the word and listen to my soaking music. Well the Lord gave me a picture and this is what came out. Its not great and I did it in bed with dim lighting. I saw land with mountains behind these seeds and the Lord said that these seeds were my prayers and seeds that I have planted for my family. He showed me that they were sprouting but now fully grown. So that I would see growth but still keep praying. It was very encouraging to be shown that. I don't feel so hopeless and I will continue to pray his promises in.

So this painting will be called Seeds of Faith. It was done with watercolor pencils. Thank you for reading and I pray God to encourages you in whatever area you need encouraging in.

So I have decided to start a blog where I just display artwork, mine and others. A place where I can share my feelings and opinions about art. Art is a way of expressing ones feelings. I love to blog but I think paintings can speak louder then words. My dream is to open a Gallery displaying my artwork and others especailly young adults. But first I have to find the time to start painting. You see I am a stay at home mom of three kids. I have been married 8yrs to a wonderful man of God. Plus I am a teacher to my boys. So we will see my plann is to paint atleast one painting a month. I would like to post a painting a week. So if you know someone that paints and wants to display it let me know. This will be the start of a new career for me.

I am very excited about where God is taking me. I have had this desire in my heart since I was in 1st grade. I have always known that I wanted to do soemthing along the lines of art. I use to want to be a art teacher but hey whos to say that won't happen. Well better go to bed now Good Nite and God Bless!!!
