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:)
