Alrighty, here are three paintings that I have completed! I wanted to share them with you guys. Over the summer I was introduced to "mixed media" art. I'm starting to love it more and more. Now, you have to know me to understand this....but my style changes pretty often! I used to love modern - you know, everything stainless steel, kind of thing. But over the past couple of years, I have become a shabby girl. Now, I'm beginning to really like combining modern with the chippy.
Here's one painting. Over the summer I was given a poetry book that has this quote in it. I think it is beautiful (by Thomas Merton):
I will travel to You, Lord, through a thousand blind alleys. You want to bring me to You through stone walls.

This is how it is with the Lord so much of the time. You see, He runs to our "impossibilities". What seems far out or too difficult to us is NOTHING to Him! Take walking through a stone wall.....seems ridiculous, right? But that's how He works. He wants to bring us closer to Him through impossibilities. I dare you to believe Him for extravagant things today......He really wants to give you the BEST of the best! He is a good Daddy, Who loves to give good gifts!

Here's another one.........a quote from Father Himself!
"Blessed are those who chase after Me...for I am always chasing after them."

One more....a favorite. I love old photos. This one of a lady reading a letter is lovely. It says
"Oh God, You are my God. Earnestly I seek You. Your unfailing love is better than life...in You....I am satisfied." Psalm 63.
I can't decide if I want to sell it or not :-/.

Yesterday, I found this HUGE silver tray. I have never seen one like it. It is about 24" in diamater and it is on a pedestal that turns! It is heavy, old and tarnished.....absolutely FABULOUS for the holiday dining table! For today it is sitting on my plank table until I take it up to the Poet in the next couple of days.

Well, I think that's all for now. I have a couple smaller pieces to paint and take up to the Poet this week. I will post new booth pics then.

Thanksgiving is almost upon us! I can't wait!!! This is the most beautiful time of year. I am so wanting to take a trip to the mountains, though!

Until next time....every one have a great, peaceful day!

Quote for the day "God's work done His way never lacks provision." amen and amen!!!
