Store the Word (Up)

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.

Revival Coming (acrylic painting)

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)”

Process: How to Paint an Egret

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.

Male Cardinal: acrylic bird painting

I love cardinals, and when I saw this one when I was visiting the zoo to take some wildlife shots (he was hanging around, almost tame, let me get within a few feet of him) I decided to do his portrait.

White -faced ibis are southern water birds that are small and have a large beak for probing through wetlands. This painting is based on some photos I took of one recently. My roommate and I both think he looks a bit like Gonzo from Sesame Street, and that he is adorable.

Pas de Deux: Sandhill Cranes

A couple of weeks ago, I saw some Sandhill cranes -which I think are absolutely lovely birds – in a field in mid-Michigan. There were three juveniles, and two adults. Then, the adults stated to do the most amazing thing: they began to do a mating dance, right there. I was in awe of theirContinue reading “Pas de Deux: Sandhill Cranes”
