"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

for my daughter

I created this one for my daughter. Actually the previous one I posted was originally for her, but it came out in different colors than I intended for her, which I am now happy it did. I like the two previous ones hung together. So, today I did this one for her. She likes it a lot, I like the others better, they seem a little edgy-er or something. She did not want as much black on hers, and wanted it blended a little more.

Okay, enough for today. I really need to wash my hands!!!!

Oh, it's snowing!!!!!! YEA!!!!!!

I agree more with your tastes, Mary, and prefer the other two with the striking bold black. This one is good too, just a different feel for a different temperament.

Mary...you should do a line of cards with these paintings. They are fabulous!

Mary, this is beautiful and I think it's wonderful you were able to incorporate your daughters preferences in the piece. And I do pray that the Love of God brings healing to your daughter. Being sick ourselves is one thing, seeing our child suffer is a whole other matter. And thank you for your encouraging words and I agree with Megan, a line of cards using your art would be an excellent idea.

Oh this painting is BEAUTIFUL Mary! I love it and I am personally drawn to those colors of blues, fuschia and purples. You are a very talented woman. Did you take art classes to learn how to use black in this way? I would like to learn how. I also think I sometimes think too hard and long about imagining what I want to sketch and paint. How do you come up with your great ideas for paintings?
