CONE FLOWERS ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

CONEFLOWERS original watercolor is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 pound rough paper.
With their hands raised
like sacred dancers,
moving to silent music
the dance of the breath of God
invisible breezes
the petal of the coneflowers
each like the arms of the dancers
swaying in unison
in time to the rhythm
the dance of creation
in the bright morning sun.

TIGER LILIES ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

TIGER LILIES original watercolor painting is 9 x 12 on Arches 140 lb rough paper.

And why worry about your clothing? 
Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. 
They don’t work or make their clothing,

 that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, 
he will certainly care for you. 
Why do you have so little faith?
Matthew 6:28-30 The Living Bible
