#460 Some Purple Flowers

I created this piece using a yellow piece of 9×12 card stock using soft pastels and pen highlights. I started this piece over a year ago and hen sat it aside. I came back to it and added the flowers and leaves. I guess persistence pays off especially in the art world. God calls us to remember that life is not a sprint. No, live is a marathon which requires us to endure the long run ahead of us. The key as Paul points out is to run the race set before us with joy. This requires us to be persistent and not turn from God.

#448 Pink Flower Up Close

I like to take some subjects and get up close when I paint. It takes something real and gives it an abstract feel. I created this abstract flower using Nu Pastels and some Prismacolor pencils on a 6×9 Strathmore drawing pad. The Bible for many even some Christians the Bible is abstract. This is because we do not take the time to get up close to read and study God’s word.
