Carole, I just love you! I hope your week has gotten better! Hugs!
WOW! for a slow start for your creativity, you sure excelled in the end! Thanks so much for your amazing process video!
Thanks so much! hugs
thank you Shawn! been watching all your videos and i love them. can you tell me what your paint on? or, i guess where you purchase ? looks like a wood panel.
Jane, so glad you are enjoying the videos, I create on 3/4″ mdf board. I cut them to the size that I need. I get large sheets and then cut them . I do sell them in the shop. Hope this helps.
Thank you for sharing this inspiring piece today and your frustrating week. I have been having a similar frustrating week also. The hymn playing is my favorite hymn, “It is well with my soul”, I love that hymn and the story about the writer and why he wrote it. My creativity has deserted me lately, your sunday inspiration is helping me to get back to my art journals, I need them to nurture myself. The birds flying in your piece brought to mind when Jesus talked about not worrying and trusting God, and how the birds of the air are taken care of by God and they don’t worry. I read this a lot when I am anxious.
Jacquelene, I love how the birds to you meant trusting… I also love it is well with my soul, it is a go to song when I’m feeling out of sorts!
I think it is very clever, and I feel like I could soar !
Sarah, I just love you! Hugs1
