"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.

a mix of things

Lots going on in the Studio yesterday. 

 Some of the Saturday Journal Group girls were here. We were all working on various projects.  The beautiful painting below was painted by Wendy.  Her first BIG painting.  This summer will mark her one year anniversary of journaling and painting. One Year! This painting holds deep meaning for her.
Wendy, it is beautiful!


Carrie is making wonderful coasters.  She is going to put alphabet letters in the corners and seal them. She also did some designs on the sided of them.  She made one for me that had the word paint, and it's various forms.  Seeing the word "Splendid" on the left side was an unexpected find.  



This painting is a baby gift for a friend.  She wanted more earth tone colors, and it will be hung on a sage green wall. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.  


And last, a better photo of my Good Friday painting.

Wishing all you Mom's a blessed day!!
I gonna go take a nap!!

Mary,
Each project you posted is beautiful. I wish I were closer so I could soak in some of the remarkable talent. The painting by Wendy is especially appealing. Love each piece posted, each artist is unique and so talented.

Great projects going on! Love the texture in Wendy's painting, beautiful. and the coaster idea is a great one, how cool are they :-) Love the rich earth tones you achieved for the background (would love to know some of the colours you used) and of course your Easter piece is just smashing, high impact. Great art all the way round!
