I’m a little behind on my bird paintings–sorry folks! I was hoping to have two to post today but there was a catastrophe outside my studio today–someone ran over the mailboxes and it seemed to draw a crowd, which led to talking which led to not getting both of the paintings done. I have no idea where the mail was delivered but it was nice meeting some of my new business neighbors.
Now back to the Tern–they are cool looking birds and that’s why I chose to paint it. As for knowing anything about them, I’m too tired to learn anything so it’s just going to be a picture tonight. 🙂
On the easel–a Great Blue Heron–very difficult to paint on a 7″x5″ format, but it’s almost done. The other painting is a Virgina Rail.
I am a curious artist who enjoys stimulating dialogue, exploring perspective and relationship in all things art, life (human and animal kingdom alike) and my beliefs...I avoid politics when possible.
A little background on this blog--I'd been going to an art group for Christians called The Responding and a few months in I decided to respond--yep, I'm a slow one to respond. About the same time my husband wanted me to illustrate some of his children's poetry, which is far from my style. I was praying about it and woke up with the idea to start doodling responses to my morning devotions and hopefully I'd be able to develop a style that could work for poetry. I decided to doodle through My Utmost for His Highest. At first I started with just doodles, then I decided to add a brief thought response on the back of the card. Then one day I thought, "Why keep these to myself, I'll start a Facebook photo page. Eventually it became this blog.
What's planned for the future? When I've doodled through the whole book I plan to do a physical show with them. I will also choose some to develop further and the remainder I will. sell them. All proceeds will go to relieve abuse of all kinds. Currently I'm exploring ministries and orginizations that have credible backgrounds to invest in. More details will be made available as I continue on with this venture. I'm trusting God to lead me.
