Not tossed by the Wind

Ask in faith so that you will not be like a wave of the sea.

Another uncolored illustration that I revisited, added some color with markers and did the background in Photoshop.

Autumn at my Home: Welcome

My Front Porch
Welcome to my home. It's slowly becoming my most favorite time of the year Autumn. I have so many fond memories of playing outside, reading a book, playing in the leaves. I miss having the front porch of my childhood, but I'll work with what I have. I found this deacon's bench at an estate auction. It fits perfectly. I can sit, have coffee and read while the cool air fills my soul. (Click picture for closer look)

My Flesh is as Grass

Today I went to Barnes and Noble, look through some of my favorite magazines, became inspired, became frustrated with myself, and practiced drawing. Then I went back to one of my old sketchbooks picked out a drawing that I was afraid to add color to and this is the result. I colored the leaves, dress, and face with markers, then scanned it, colored the background in Photoshop. I am pleased!

I am a Runner!

 I am a runner. I'm no professional but, I love to wake up at 5 a.m. put on my running gear and go. My neighborhood is great for short runs and we live close to a trail for long runs. I am happy with my short run pace, if only I could keep it when I run longer.
I've met a lot of older women in their 70's who are my role models. They still get out there and do it. That's the way I want to be.
Although I am not consistent with my art, I can say I am at running and reading. I don't feel like I'm in my fifties.

Sunday's this Summer

My favorite Summer Sunday Drawing
Here's a collection of my Summer Sunday's. I like to draw what I'm wearing although you only see the top. My sketchbook is actually my scripture notes for Sunday Worship. These sketches are the extent of my drawing daily. Life should get easier as you grow older, meaning I should have more "me time." I think I will have to wake up at 3 a.m. to actually do all the things I want. I currently wake up at 5 a.m. so I can run and study my Bible. I want to spend more time in my own personal in-depth Bible study and draw and create daily! Time flies!

I Surrender

Sometimes you may feel like surrendering when life throws you some very hard blows, but don't surrender. God has the answers, but you have to go to his word, believe, and trust. Surrender only to God!
 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. Psalm 56:3

CED: Unknown

I haven't been very creative this summer, but now that school is back in session I can get back to creativity.
My submission for Creative Everyday: Unknown. When you take that leap into marriage you leap into the unknown "to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part."
The painting inspiration came from a magazine photo, I can't remember which one. I left out the flowers and turned her suit into a dress. Sorry I can't give the proper credits.
