For My Family - Life Verse Painting

I have been wanting to paint our family life verse for quite some time now!  Finally...it is finished!  It is Colossians 1:9-12 - I cannot think of any way to say it better than these verses do, so my kids know what my daily prayer is for them and how I pray God uses me to raise them - I LOVE IT!!!!

Here's a far away view - you can click on it to see it better!

...and a close up!

For Dallas First

This painting was painted for an auction for the church I grew up in:  Dallas First Church of the Nazarene!  Their children's director called me and asked if I could donate something and this is what I came up with after praying for inspiration:)  I loved the colors in this one - metallic copper and silver - I think I might recreate this on a larger canvas!  I also LOVE this Bible verse!:)

Shirley's Painting

 This is my latest work.  This painting was for a friend of mine who wanted me to create this for her boss, Shirley, another friend of mine.  It depicts the slingshot and 5 stones David threw when going up against Goliath, the Giant!  Shirley now owns a company called Lady Primrose, specializing in amazingly beautiful women's bath and body products - they sell to fancy stores, and to incredibly fancy hotels all over the world.  This is the verse she clung to when going up against the previous owners to acquire the business!  I happen to LOVE how this turned out!  Its pretty different from my other paintings - it definitely stretched me as an artist - probably why I like it so much!

This is a better view, for some reason my camera photgraphs my art better when I don't use a flash:)

For Mom!

I made this painting for my mom for Mother's Day. This is a poem her mother, who died when my mom was 10 yrs. old, had tacked on the wall. My mom assumed she loved it so much, to just tack it up on the wall, and after her mother's passing she committed to memorizing it. It has been passed down in our family and I was so pleased to make this for her, now I just want to make myself one!!!

Sweet Owl

This is just a sweet little owl I recreated for a party I went to where I showed some ladies how I do my art, and how they can also create their own art for their kiddos rooms, themselves, etc. I found a picture like this on a website, not sure of the name, but it was a website for kids rooms, decoration, etc. I like to find things that inspire me and then recreate them and put my own little spin on them:) This one is for sale if anyone wants it, just leave a comment - first come, first served!

John's Painting

This is a painting my husband and I worked on together. My sister and her husband took a trip to Mexico MANY years ago and visited a little art gallery there. John, my sister's husband, liked this painting and so she took a picture of it, brought the picture home, had us re-create it - and make it into our own interpretation, and then she SUPRISED him with it as a gift for his birthday! This is one of my all time favorites!!!! It hangs in their entryway so I still get to see it often:)
