“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. ❤️
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.
I had the privilege of traveling to downtown Tampa to do some chalk drawing at the annual Gasparilla art Festival at Curtis Hixon Park. March 1st-2nd. It was a beautiful location and was run so well! Myself along with 3 other chalk artists created 8×8′ pieces on cement board by the entrance of the festival all day Saturday and Sunday until 2pm. I had a great time and met some talented and kind artists. Next up I am traveling to Safety Harbor, Florida March 22nd for the Bloom N Chalk Festival! I’m excited!
