Wrapped in His Feathers -Paint Party Friday

I was going through some piles of my old artwork when I found a drawing I'd penciled onto lined paper, dated the year 2000.  The drawing struck such a chord in my heart, I put the idea to paper once again. 

My life has been so different since my husband passed away recently.  I have run into the arms of Him Who loves me so many times over the past few months.  Ah, He covers me with His feathers and keeps me safe, next to His heart.

He will cover you with His feathers, 
and under His wings you will find refuge; 
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
~Psalm 94:1
A Song of David 

Happy Paint Party Friday, all you lovely artists and beautiful people. Thank you for dropping by.

Kitty Cat Cloud

It has been awhile since I posted one of my cloud paintings, so here he is--this sweet little Kitty Cat Cloud.  I love how his ears turned out.  What a cutie.  I do so adore cats.  (grin)

Above you see this beautiful little fellow as I first saw him, floating and stretching across the skies.

Have a lovely week, dear Friends.  Eyes to the Skies!!!  You never know what you will see.

Grapevine Princess -Paint Party Friday

I was inspired by an Art Nouveau border I found online.  I've made it my own, but I can't claim full credit.  I have done a lot of doodling in my sketchbook lately, and this is one of my most recent graphite drawings. I like the look on this lovely girl's face.  I caught something beautifully appealing here--but with such a lovely model, I am not surprised.

Above you see my wonderful model Rena.  I love the way the camera sees her.  Her beauty is that of the old Greek statues.  How blessed I am by her friendship!  

Happy Paint Party Friday, all you lovely artists and beautiful people. Thank you for dropping by.

Crown of Vetch -Paint Party Friday

This colored pencil drawing is of my niece.  She is a free spirit like me, with a grand imagination and a love for the Forest and all things faery.  Flora is a wonderful little friend and I love her very much.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, spring is in the air.  The trees are bright with blossoms.  There are flowers springing from the earth and the birds are trilling their spring songs.  It is a beautiful day today.  I am posting this picture, because on the other side of the country--you all have snow!  I'm envious of your snow, as I am sure you must be envious of our spring blossoms.  

Happy Paint Party Friday, all you lovely people. Thank you for dropping by.
