spread some joy around the world.  Praying
for the broken hearted............

Healing Hand

These ladies were drawn on a scrap  piece of muslin with Derwent watercolor pencils.  I added flowers and encaustic wax to the final painting.  Grateful for healing thoughts and hands.

August 2012, the birds will soon be packing
their bags for their journey...........getting ready
for the flight.

This is a wax painting, I did not
purposely sit down to paint the blue bird.
He showed up in the wax, so I outlined his
body and let him stay.

9/22/2012--Our choir is learning the following song, and I realized while singing it  that it fits my bird that showed up in my painting.  It's written by Eleanor Farjeon.

 Miss Geraldine this song is for you.

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word.

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass.

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning,
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day.

Why He loves me so.

Have I said before how much I love
painting with wax.  When my creative muse
takes a vacation, the wax calls me to
 "come on back."  Even if it is almost
800 degrees outside!

Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day Blessings to all mothers.  A special
 blessing for
motherless moms.  My mom's mother died when she was
12 years old.  The family was broken up and other
 special people became mothers to them.  Yes, 
that is a photo of my mom
 and me at the top of my blog.

Thank you.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

As Mr. Rogers would say, "its a beautiful day in the neighborhood."  May is a gorgeous
month, the trees and flowers are bursting with blooms.  Blessings are abundantly flowing.  I am loving the color yellow and this is a gorgeous sunshine filled yellow day.  The multi-colored birds are singing their songs by day and by night.   What more could one ask for?

The storms kept on raging in her life. She decided to leave, not knowing when she would return.

Midnight In Miss Eva's Garden

Miss Eva loved her flowers, especially
at night.....Even the night shall be light about me...the darkness shall not hide from you; but the night shines as the day. The darkness and the light are both alike to you..."---Psalm 139:11-12

Look at the World

Thank you. " Look at the world, everything all around us: look at the world and marvel everyday. Look at the world:
so many joys and wonders, so many miracles along our way.

Praise to thee, O Lord, for all creation, give us thankful hearts, that we may see:
All the gifts we share, and every blessing,

All things come of thee.

Look at the earth, bringing forth fruit and flower,
Look at the sky---the sunshine and the rain;
Look at the hills, look at the trees and mountain, valleys
and flowing river, field and plain:

Think of the spring, think of the warmth of summer,
Bringing the harvest before the winter's cold.
Everything grows, everything has a season,
Till it is gathered to the father's fold.
Every good gift, all that we need and cherish,
comes from the Lord, in token of his love;
We are his hands, stewards of all his bounty;
His is the earth, and his the heavens above.
Praise to thee, O lord, for all creation,
Give us thankful hearts that we may see.

All the gifts we share, and every blessing,
All things come of thee."-------John Rutter

Our choir at church did this song, the next day I went to our Art Together group at church, and she started coming out of the blotches of paint on the canvas. At first I had the world turned out away from her and another artist, Kathi Taylor, told me to turn the world in, keep the world on the canvas, it made all the difference.
