The truth shall set you free…
I had a dream about this piece and couldn’t wait to create it. There’s so much meaning within this piece for me.
The truth shines the light in the dark places. The truth brings forgiveness and offers hope. Loving the truth about who we are, the good and the bad, brings peace. The truth teaches and helps us to grow in wisdom. The truth helps us to see clearly.
Take the time to search for your truth in your life and your soul.

Shawn you are a beautiful person not just in looks and size but in who you are and how you give so much to others of yourself. I too have struggled throughout my life with self image issues. What helped me most is finally realizing that God loved and loves me as I am, broken, full of sin and not because I am a certain way. That set me free to know he choose me where I was not having to measure up to a standard. You are beautiful! Thank you for your truthful sharing. I am sure it will be a God send for others.
Thank you for beautiful word my friend! Hugs and love
Thank you, Shawn……….being inspired on Sunday is a gift to be sure!! Sending you hugs and love……

Carole you make my Sunday too, with constant encouragement. You have a gift! Hugs and love
I love this piece. The stenciled door is wonderful surrounded by the white and then the drippy colors and a bird flying overhead. It’s is very appealing.
Thank you Lucy!
Loved this one, not just the painting but also your comments. Being a control freak myself I completely understand..have learned as I’ve gotten older that if it’s something I can’t control, to let it go, if I can, do it in love…and always remember that if I don’t allow others to take part (and not micro manage) then I am stealing their blessing.
Also thank you for always reminding that we are loved, and I know you know that you are loved also…in His name….
Thank you Terri… we are all more alike than we are different… hugs
Thank you, always, for sharing your work and yourself!! This is so beautiful! I am in the process of finding my way through my own creative journey, and would like to ask you a technical question: I know you work on MDF and you love to use your handy little charcoal pencil, how do you seal/protect your work to keep the charcoal and pastel, etc., from smudging? Do you use a spray varnish or perhaps a combination of spray product and then brush on? I’m just not sure what the best approach is…
PS~ It’s so important to pay attention to those dreams that come with such clarity, isn’t it? Thank you again for sharing your ‘inspiration’ 🙂
Dara, I spray with Krylon fixatif first and then I seal with a varnish (Liquitex or Golden). Thank you so glad you are sharing the journey!
Thank you – that helps a bunch!
