In the Throne Room 2 (Prophetic)

This post is based on a dream I had on 9/12/2020. My prayer is that it will encourage you. The illustration is a painting I created several months ago to attempt to share the feeling of glory. In this dream, I was in the throne room of God (Jesus took me there). I felt totalContinue reading “In the Throne Room 2 (Prophetic)”

Commission of Beach and flowers

I recently completed a commission in which the client requested bright colors and a scene depicting the beach, the lake and flowers. I chose the scene from near a friend’s house and added Indian Paintbrush, which actually grows not far from the beach up here in Michigan. I added real sand and glitter to theContinue reading “Commission of Beach and flowers”

Kildeer on Lake Huron Beach

I enjoy painting Kildeer; they are one of my favorite shore birds. This one hangs out on a small rocky point on Lake Huron in North Michigan. I went with a limited palette for this one: burnt umber, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre and titanium white.

Egret in the Marsh

I have spent a lot of time walking near, around and in the marshes of North Michigan. This is the habitat where black flies and mosquitoes like to live – but it is all worth it to catch sight of an egret like this one! This painting is based on one that hangs out inContinue reading “Egret in the Marsh”

Geese taking off in late afternoon: acrylic painting

I love the birds around Lake Huron, and last week I saw this beautiful sight that I decided to paint: Canadian Geese beginning to fly just before sunset. I used the following colors for this painting: ultramarine blue, cerulean blue; cadmium red medium; titanium white; burnt umber and Lamp Black.

Nuthatch in Early Spring: acrylic painting

I enjoy watching nuthatches creeping upside down and sideways around trees, and decided to paint this one that I saw in the early Michigan spring a few weeks ago just after it had snowed. I used a very limited palette for this painting: ultramarine blue, titanium white, burnt umber, burnt sienna and yellow ochre.

Juncos Under the Pines: Acrylic Painting

Juncos are small birds that are ground feeders. I often see them under the pines here in North Michigan, and decided to paint a pair of males searching for food in early spring. I used a very limited palette for this painting: ultramarine blue, burnt umber, burnt sienna, yellow ochre, sap green and titanium white.Continue reading “Juncos Under the Pines: Acrylic Painting”

Joy in the Revival: Prophetic Painting

In my dream, I saw that my friend and I were in the middle of a wide river, splashing, and thousands of people were splashing in it with us. Everyone was having fun; they were all filled with joy. There were little children with their inner tubes and beach toys and water wings on; weContinue reading “Joy in the Revival: Prophetic Painting”

Prayers

This painting was inspired by a dream I had, in which I saw what basically amounted to a “strategy room” in heaven. I saw individuals gathered around a table, some were people from the Bible (like Joshua), and they had a map of the world, and were working on strategies for various nations (not sureContinue reading “Prayers”
