#435 A Still Life in Brown

I created this drawing using some soft pastels and a pen. The drawing is done on a 6×9 white drawing pad. There are times in life when being playful is allowed even for us who call ourselves a flower of Jesus. I can’t picture Jesus always being serious with the 12 disciples. There had to be times when they kicked back and fun in order to relieve the tension. At least I think they would.

#433 Little Red Flowers

I have been creating a series of 5×7 paintings of which Little Red Flowers is the latest. The painting is done in color pencil and soft pastels on card stock. I started doing these paintings because I think creating small art pieces is technically more challenging than creating a larger piece of art. Creating small paintings also get you from start to finish in less time so it helps me to learn new techniques faster. We called by God not to be the greasiest but to be attentive to the small things because it is in the small things where we grow and flourish as a followers of Jesus.

#431 Lady in Black

The latest in a series I am doing of feau fashion drawings. This one is on an old 8×11 book page. One again I used soft pastels and color pencil to create the design. The picture itself is an abstract of a girl walking on the beach during a sunset. While I am not a beach person I love the beauty of the beach area. All to many times we stay indoors instead of getting out and seeing the beauty of God’s creation. There is so much nature has to offer if only we take the time to look.

#430 Three Houses

Back in the day my favorite thing to paint was landscapes. Most of the one I did back then were more realistic than the one here. Today however I like the more whimsical drawings. The more abstract drawings. I don’t know why I just do. Maybe it is because I am older and at times life seems so much more serious I need a little whimsy now and then. Anyway other than maybe a portraiture expect some more whimsical art. Thank you to all those who regularly follow my art work. I really appreciate it. Tell your friends.

#426 Flower In the Moonlight

There are three things in life I truly love God, my family and friends and art. There is something about taking a blank piece of paper or a canvas and adding lines and co,or. In the end you have a created drawing which may or may not have turned out the way you wanted but you are still thrilled by your creation. The age old debate is whether we were created by God or not. I believe we were and in Genesis, before the fall, the Bible tells us that He loved His creation. Even after the creation was marred by sin He set into motion the plan to bring us back to Him. Skeptical? Then examine the evidence for yourself. The drawing today is done on a 7 1/2 by 11 1/2 old book page using soft pastels.

#424 Red Flower In Vase

Life is like a flower. When you’re born you a bud waiting to bloom. As you grow and live to full bloom you are a beautiful flower showing off your true colors. In the winter of life you will go back to the ground leave no behind the small blooms (your children or those people you’ve touched throughout your life) to carry on. This is another in a series of large and small abstract flower pictures I am fond of doing. The drawing is done on 9×12 white paper using soft pastels.

#422 Flower In A Bowl

I like abstract art because the object is to create without restrictions. This one is done in soft pastel on 9×12 maroon paper. Life I think is abstract because we try to live like there are no restrictions. The problem is like the painting there are no clear definitions of how we should be living. That is why I am so thankful we have God’s Word because I can open the Bible and find a clear definition for living my life.
