Recently, I painted a portrait of a friend. Because she is an encourager, and gives prophetic words to others, when I thought of her, I saw her giving out honey – so that’s how I painted her.
A few weeks ago, I had a series of dreams. In one, the LORD told me “Store the Word in your heart” (start memorizing it). I sensed in the dream that there may come a time in a few years, when Bibles won’t be as easily available. This painting is based on that dream.
While I normally don’t work in abstract, today I did, to depict the coming revival using acrylic paints: The wave represents the outpouring of the Holy Spirit; the light and dark dots below are people who are beginning to experience this. The revival is coming soon to America. There will be healings, and people comingContinue reading “Revival Coming (acrylic painting)”
A few months ago, I had a series of dreams. This painting is based on one. Photo credit for horse: Karen Broemmelsick (used with permission) Here’s the dream: In this part of the vision, Jesus brought me a horse; it was large, powerful, beautiful.

I have come to believe that Jesus heals today, because of what I have seen in the lives of friends and my own life (I had plantar fascitis, very painful for a year, it was healed instantly a few months ago). I wanted to create a picture that shows how Jesus heals, and this wasContinue reading “Jesus Healing a Woman”
A few weeks ago, I was at a restaurant in north Michigan when my friends and I sighted a young blue heron outside our window. One friend (Julie Bond) took a photo, which I used as the basis for this painting of a juvenile blue heron. I went with a limited palette, and used aContinue reading “Juvenile Blue Heron Painting”
This painting is based on a dream/vision that I had a few weeks ago. The explanation is below. Wedding Feast of the Lamb After the battle, we saw a feast: the wedding feast of the Lamb. The table was huge, it was long, and stretched out for miles, all the way to the horizon. ItContinue reading “The Marriage Feast of the Lamb”
I have had a series of dreams over a period of several weeks. This painting is based on one. In my dream/vision (hard to tell which, happened at night when sleeping but seemed so real), I was with a close friend, and we were in a room where there was music playing, it had aContinue reading “The Music Room of Heaven”
I had another “God encounter”, and based on it, am writing a story and created a painting in acrylic to illustrate it. I pray it will bless you. The woman who found love There was a woman who had been wandering in the desert for a long, long time. She wandered under the hot sun,Continue reading “Anointing with Love: prophetic art”
Recently, I had a series of dreams/visions in the middle of the night. This painting is based on one that I had. Below the picture is the explanation: In the dream/vision, I saw the world, and while there were small areas of light, there was a lot of darkness. Then, as I watched, I sawContinue reading “Revival coming: prophetic art”
In the previous post, I shared how I start an acrylic bird painting. In this lesson, I will show the next steps. Next, I start refining my lights and darks, and mid-tones, correcting where needed. I use mainly the palette I mentioned in lesson 1: titanium white, burnt umber, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, payne’s grey,Continue reading “How to paint an Egret in acrylics: Lesson 2”
One of my readers asked if I could share my process in creating a painting, so I decided to take photos and discuss how it is done, from start to finish. While the process starts with field studies, sitting out in marshes and swatting mosquitoes and black flies, I will focus on the painting aspectContinue reading “Process: How to Paint an Egret”
