Expressions of the Wind

 Redbubble Prints, Wall Art, Apparel, Stationary, bags, cell phone covers

“Expressions of the Wind” is a digital art piece that has been created from three separate acrylic paintings of creative expression. Layering them on top of each has created a whole new and surprisingly lovely expression of wind. If we could see the wind it might look like this.The abstract shapes, swirls, swishes, and dancers expressing movement might suggest wind, which is one of those things that we can’t see but we can feel it and we can see the effects of it. The presence of God in the form of the Holy Spirit is sometimes referred to as the wind. We can feel Him and we can see the effects of Him but we don’t always see Him.
I love the flow of this piece with the gentle soft colors of pink, coral, mint green with a hint of iridescent.

Going from Black and White to Color

As a budding artist I spend hours drawing and perfecting my skill. My own lack of confidence did me a service as well as a disservice. Working very hard I become excellent at creating a perfect portrait in black and white, however, it was not always enjoyable as I didn’t feel I had the time it took because I felt it had to be perfect. I denied myself the pleasure of creating and I wasn’t expressing my heart completely. I was stuck in black and white; not living and creating in color.
One weekend I went to an artist retreat with an Anglian Priest and his wife. He led the spiritual and she taught the art. Even though excited to learn watercolor and calligraphy, the first words that came out of her mouth made my heart sink. “Tonight we are just going to play as if we were at kindergarten.”
This is not what I signed up for but a surprising journey of healing began. By the end of the weekend I was bawling. A crack of hope began to open up this gift of creativity that would bring me from black and white to color.
The crack opened up even further one day as I was journaling my prayers. I kept getting distracted by drawing little pictures in the corner of my journal.
I sighed a prayer to the Father, “Help me focus on You!”
A soft and tender voice came to my spirit, “I made you that way. Go and paint your worship.”
With canvas, paints and worship music, I began. I let my worship pour out onto that canvas. The outcome was freeing and beautiful. Since then color truly flows with unique flavor, expression, beauty, joy and various styles. A deeper richer relationship with the Creator flows too with truths, insights, blessings, and intercessions. God speaks to me through my art. The worship I give to Him reflects back to me. We are co-creating and I have truly gone from black and white to color.

This is Rolly. He is staying next door temporarily but he is on guard duty all the same. He alerts us to cats that place a paw near our area or if any questionable people come within 100 feet. We calm him down with complements to reassure him that he is being a good guard dog.

I am having fun with combining some of my favorite worship art pieces to form digital prints. This one turned out pretty good and gives  a whole new feeling and expression.

Worship Art

Three older paintings and one new one. I hung these up in our little place just because I thought they looked good together and a couple months later I realized that there is a theme. Can you guess what it is? The latest one (on the bottom left) is magnifying what is in the others.

Cartoon Selfies for $20.00

Caricatures are fun! It’s you in cartoon form; it’s a Cartoon-Selfie!
I have been doing a lot of cartooning lately. I guess I just need to laugh and have some fun in my life. Cartoon Selfies (is what I am calling them because that seems like it would be more politically correct) are great for gifts, profiles, parties, events and fundraisers!

Uncluttered

Uncluttering our lives so we can do and be and live freely without distractions is a beautiful thing. Sometimes it is not a bad thing when we lose things or have to scale down our lives. It is amazing what we can do without. Decluttering our lives of things can be calming and allows us to focus on what is most important in our lives.
"Uncluttered" can be purchased at House of James

This Orignal Acrylic Painting can be purchased at House of James in Abbotsford, BC.
