  • The pastels were calling to me this dreary, Texas weekend. 💕 I won’t admit to how many tubes of paint I went through for this heavy 36x36 piece titled ‘Faith Like a Child - Glimpsing a Rainbow’, or how many different colors it contains 😳😳, but I simply love the outcome so I’d say it was totally worth it! 💕 I’ve been talking to my students this week about trying to tap into their ‘5-year-old self’...finding the creativity that we had as children that we all seem to lose along the way. The same applies to our Faith! 🙌🏼 It’s so very easy when you’re a child to simply BELIEVE in the Love of our precious Lord. Adulthood seems to taint this though as the problems and stresses of this world consume us. My hope though is that we can learn to get out of our adult mind and find that rainbow again, trusting our Lord as if we were that 5-year-old self once more. ————
‘Whenever a rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth’ ~ Genesis 9:16 ————
‘Then he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.’’ ~ Matthew 18:3

  • Happy Sunday! ❤️ Today marks the last day of my Christmas break before heading back to work, which means mainly night painting for me until the summer time. That being said, you can bet I’ll be soaking in the sunshine today! 😎😎 This most recent piece was a stretch for me as RED is not in my typical color palette (at least not THIS much) but when a local gallery decides to do a RED Exhibition for the month of February, I had to at least try to pull those tubes out. As I was painting, the title ‘FORGIVEN’ kept ringing through my ears. Before scrolling down and reading my interpretation of this piece and the color ‘red’, I’d love to know what the color RED makes you feel?? ................................................................................................................................................................................ For me, this color is a powerful yet peaceful color. It provokes strong, complex, and conflicting emotions in those who observe it. For me personally, it represents not only the pain of Christ’s Crucifixion but also the overwhelming Love in this ultimate sacrifice. It provokes feelings of both sadness and gratefulness as through Christ's precious tears and innocent blood, we are Forgiven. ❤️🙏🏼🙌🏼❤️ #red #forgiveness #forgiven #redpaint #propheticart #throughchristwearesaved

  • I’ve been waiting to share this AMAZING local artist with you until gifts were given for Christmas, but I decided to go ahead and share mine! @dossantospainting is an incredibly sweet, vibrant, talented artist from Ft. Worth that not only paints awesome abstract works on canvas, she also makes these SUPER COOL resin wine bottle/glass holders!! Aren’t these just the most unique pieces of art?! She custom-made 3 of these for me, and of course I had to keep one for myself! 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ The problem now is that I don’t have any wine glasses that are pretty enough to display with it...somehow screw-top wine bottles and plastic wine cups just don’t do this beautiful work justice!!🤣🤦🏼‍♀️ Go check out this VERY sweet, TALENTED artist and give her a like/follow...or better yet, order one of these awesome wine holders before they’re gone!!😍😍 #artistssupportartists #ftworthartist #resinart #wine #customart  #abstractart #contemporaryart #fineart #painting #dallasart #dallasartist #dfwartist #colorinspiration #texasartist #modernabstract

  • Side views😍😍...Big plans for this little 12x12 piece titled ‘Purposefully Broken No. 2’.✨ Still lots of touching up to do but as challenging as this technique is, the result is one of my favorites...not just because of its composition, but because of its meaning.🙏🏼 As said in a previous post: Scars are simply places where HIS Light is able to shine through. We are NOT perfect, but through our broken-ness we have the opportunity to shine Light in places others can’t reach. We are all uniquely, beautifully, PURPOSEFULLY BROKEN...but God uses this to reach even the most lost sheep. 💛💛 #purposefullybroken #artfromthesoul #newyorkartexhibition #texture @nyagallery

  • (Unavailable) Ending January 1st with an explosion of color and texture! 🥰 I always return to these more expressive techniques as they are the pieces that send me to the Bible to seek their meaning. 🙏🏼 ‘I am the vine, you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.’ ~ John 15:5 ❤️💚 #jesusisthevine #lordineedyou #expressiveart

  • When I was growing up, my grandma’s kitchen had a shiny red brick floor, a red chandelier, and red poppy wallpaper in the laundry room/pantry off the back. I don’t see red poppies without thinking of her, so I made her this little piece as a Christmas gift to remind us all of good times in that big house, and that red poppy wallpaper.🥰🥰🥰 #memoriesofchildhood #redpoppy #grandmasarethebest #flowerart #poppy

  • Slowly making headway on my little portraiture study and I have to admit, I’m really enjoying the CHALLENGE of it! It’s interesting to see the progression of these ‘Beautiful Souls’ as I become more comfortable with my technique. Still a long way to go, but I’m pleased so far. Now, WHAT to do for their ‘’hair’?🤔🤔🤔 #inhislikeness #beautifulsouls #portraiturestudy

  • Finally able to make some more headway on my ‘Divine Love Trilogy’...they’re still in need of a few things (painted sides, gold/silver leaf details, varnish) before being set into their frames, but I had to lay them out to see how they’re coming together! 🥰🥰🥰 ‘Earthly love’ will always disappoint and leave us seeking more, but God’s Love is Divine, it’s PERFECT...it NEVER fails and NEVER ends. 🙌🏼 (Titles: Black = ‘Yearning’; Red = ‘Agape’; White = ‘Bridegroom’) ❤️❤️❤️ #divinelove #godslove #perfectlove #triptych

  • As we travel ‘back to reality’ after spending some time with our precious extended family, my mind starts swimming with all the new ideas I have for 2019! These little ‘idea boards’ are just the beginning of some potential commissions in the works. I’m certainly seeing more landscape abstractions in the future; after all, it’s IN nature that I feel God’s presence the most...among HIS creations and artistry! 🙌🏼 What do y’all look forward to the most in the new year?! #newideas #2019goals #abstractlandscape #modelingpasteisawesome
