2015 Courage Exhibit

I have the honor and privilege of being apart of an exhibit called “Courage”, a traveling art show with a purpose to showcase artists response to the question, “What does courage look like?” It is an exhibit based in Greensboro, NC and traveling to galleries, hospitals, and showrooms around NC and beyond 2015-2016. I am excited to see the impact of this series!
"Refraction"
“Refraction”
“The face of courage burns brightly with light and vision. It’s course is victory, and conquers discouragement with the light of its strength.”
Tiger Lilies
“Tiger Lilies”
“Lilies are a symbol of refined beauty and wealth. The tiger represents boldness, confidence, and regal beauty. We are all capable of royal, refined beauty as we move forward in our lives and blossom into our strongest self.”

Coral Springs Street Mural for Biz Art 2015

Saturday’s Biz Art event in Coral Springs was a great success! I met so many kind people and enthusiastic kids of all ages! I created a brightly colored mockingbird for the literary theme of “To Kill a Mockingbird” selected by the Coral Springs Museum of Art.

Spring Flight“Lead Me Into Spring” is a personal painting I am creating for ArtServe’s “Inside/Out- art as Healing Therapy” exhibit coming up next month.  The painting is about being led by the Spirit in a season  of transition and new adventures. The birds represent the excitement and activity of dreams taking flight, while the woman maintains a quiet heart, anchoring her vision to her well of inspiration.  I pray this painting causes you to move forward with the many dreams God excites you with, knowing you are FREE and anchored to His love, which sets us all into flight. ❤️

Safety Harbor Chalk Festival

Here is my latest Street Painting adventure from March 22-23 in Safety Harbor, Florida titled “Setting Sail”. The concept is about setting your dreams into flight with hope and confidence, and filling your sails with wind. The quaint coastal town of Safety Harbor was a perfect backdrop for my serene little sailboats :)

On to the next adventure!

I just came across this old painting I’ve since painted over from 2006, and it sort of hit me with story and strength.  It is a picture of Jesus pouring His rich inheritance over His people, an army of promise charging forth from a place of blessing and empowerment under His grace. The rose springing from the earth is the life and beauty blossoming and prospering among the emptiness and death That surrounds it.  The emerald coming out of the rose is the release of what He did on the earth and it’s broad impact on future generations. This picture reminds me to put myself under His crown, His authority and to be filled with His refreshing, equipping energy to ride confidently into the things He has destined for me.
