Check out my Etsy store, Whitty Arts for some of my featured creations.
I am always reworking pieces of art I have done into new pieces of art. I call this art, re-creations.The one above was originally a digital creation. I looked at it the other day and thought what would it look like in ink and colored pencil. I hope you like the look. Oh by the way God does the same for us when we give our lives to him. He takes one of His pieces of art, an original creation in every way, and re-creates us in His image. A new creation. A new piece of art.
Some of my drawings I repurpose and create new drawings. This is one of those drawings. It started out as a picture of rocks. I changed it and made it all about the bears and seeking out the honey. I hope you like the new versions on.
in my latest effort the hiker has his sidekick Little Fun following because as we all know we need little to have a little fun with us at all times. Think about it.
I think reading is fundamental. In fact it is how I’ve learned quite a bit about art among other topics. It is also immensely important to read your Bible. God gave us His word not so we can leave it on a table but because he wants us to read it, understand it by the help of the Holy Spirit and take what we learn to heart so we may emulate the word of God in our lives. So read.
Keeping yourself grounded is a hard thing to do sometimes. We set our goals so high they are not easily attainable. So the next thing we know we fail to reach our goals and in turn in feel like we may never succeed. So my advice in this New Year is to try and keep expectations a lower in order to insure being successful a little at a time. You know the old saying, “success breeds success.” So don’t stop setting goals just keep them obtainable.
I don’t know about you but I love to go out for a walk. The problem is it is to cold right now to get out and walk around my neighborhood. My wife and I however get our walking in at a local mall which is almost devoid of stores so it makes for a peaceful stroll. We are all called by God to talk a walk, a walk around the neighborhoods we live in and as we go we are to pass God’s love on those in whom we come in contact. Think about it.
I love to draw using color. Offered here is a one of my many fantasy drawings using layers of colored pencil to bring the drawing to life. As Christians our life is anything but dull. We live and worship a God who is the very creator of color. In life adding a little color can brighten up your world.
