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)”
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”
I love cardinals, and chose to paint a female that I had photographed in early spring in a setting of flowers for fun.
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.
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”
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.
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 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”
The titmouse is one of my favorite birds; I love the little tuft on top of their heads. This is a recently acrylic that I just completed.
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”
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”
I have been experimenting with acrylic pouring, and it has been fun. Below is one method I tried. I call this painting “Connections”.
