Good morning and Happy Sunday to everyone! I'll be linking with Sophia's Sunday Sketches today, and I hope you will join us! (link on the right) Below are a few projects I've worked on in the last couple of weeks. The first is called "Waiting on the Lord" taken from Psalm 40:1-3.
It's so hard sometimes, to pray and then just wait and wait for an answer. I've been praying the same prayer since 2006, but still have not had an answer. Has anyone else waited and waited? I know God hears our prayers and he will answer when the time is right. It's the waiting that's so hard.
Below is an ink and marker drawing from my prayer journal I wanted to share. A couple of years ago I read a book called "Praying in Color" I started my first prayer journal and really enjoy it. I draw early in the morning before I've really woken up, so sometimes it's a surprise what comes out of my pen! Here is one from last week after taking Alisa Burkes Abstract class.
Another abstract, done in paint this time, while trying to convey an emotion.
And finally, I started this plaster painting several months ago and really didn't like how it was turning out. So like a lot of my paintings, it sat and sat and...well you know what I mean. I finally decided just to go with it and see if I could somehow "fix" it. Here is the result.
The thing I love the most is the awesome texture:
I can't wait to try again, only more abstract.
Well, I've got a new journal I'm working in, so I hope to have pictures to share from there next week!
Have a wonderful week everyone!
