Monarch Butterfly Watercolor Painting

Monarch Butterfly Watercolor Painting measures 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. This was also one with no preliminary drawing but just putting paint down, which is completely different for me. For a first attempt at this, I'm not unhappy with it at all. The attempt was to capture the sunlit day, and I believe it does.

"It's who you are and the way you live that count
before God....
Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth."
John 4:23,24 The Message

Shepherd Watercolor Painting

Shepherd Watercolor Painting is 3.5 x 5 inch card (NFS) for a friend whose husband lost his mother this week. I am trying a new technique with this, and also another butterfly painting that I will post tomorrow. Another friend gave me a book with notes from Charles Hawthorne. So many things he said resonated with me as true, so I'm giving this a go.

The Scripture verse inside the card, such a beautiful description of God's loving care:

"Like a shepherd, he will care for his flock,
gathering the lambs in his arms,
hugging them as he carries them....."
Isaiah 40:11

Cat Face Watercolor Painting

Cat Face watercolor painting is 7.75 x 7.75 inches on Sennelier 140 pound watercolor paper. This is my brother and sister-in-law's cat. They live in New Hampshire and were not able to get to my art show in April in Rhode Island, and they wanted to buy the Cat Face watercolor painting, but it was sold.... So this is their little cat's face - and a Christmas Present for them (not a surprise if they're reading this!). At our family reunion in July I took photos of her so I could do this. If you are interested in a portrait of your cat, dog, please send an email for details.

We are restless til we rest in God.
.....St. Agustine

Butterfly on Flower Watercolor Painting

Butterfly on Flower Watercolor Painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. Finished this on Friday but wasn't able to post here until this a.m. New children's book The WaterFire Duck is in the publisher's hands for printing, and I have started on the second book's illustrations - Bubble Butt, The Story of Charlotte.

After meeting this weekend with some old friends from grammar school, thoughts this morning are on aging (sigh):

Years may wrinkle the skin,
but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

Three Pink Roses Watercolor Painting

Three Pink Roses watercolor painting is larger than life 12 x 16 inches on Arches 140 pound paper and from plein air painting at Blithewold Mansion and Gardens in Bristol. It was a perfect summer day for outdoor painting.

Some deep thoughts this morning on shame. Lots has been said about humility, but very little about healthy shame, without which there would be no humility. Healthy shame makes us realize that we are human after all. To be absolutely certain and right stops us from being curious, from wondering, which is the heart of all creativity and learning, whereas healthy shame moves us to learn new things, and is the source of our spirituality. (John Bradshaw, paraphrased from "Healing the Shame That Binds You")

Water Nymph Watercolor Painting

Water Nymph Watercolor Painting is 7 x 11 inches and is also from Wet Canvas weekend drawing event, but last weekend. I loved her stance, and wanted to do this in the soft emerald green and cobalt violet mix.

I was inspired today by a daily devotion from The Courage to Change from Al-anon. A reminder about doing God's will, that doesn't mean heroic acts but can be as simple as smelling a rose, reading a good book, maybe a commitment to eat well or get the rest needed....a simple gesture to a life-long habit of self-love, and this quote from Toyohiko Kagawa:

"God alone knows the secret plan
Of the things he will do for the world
Using my hand."

Owl Watercolor Painting

Owl Watercolor Painting measures about 7 x 10 inches and is from a wet canvas weekend drawing event.

Feeling anxious this a.m. about some things related to the new book about to be published, but I know that God has called us to peace ...."Don't let your hearts be troubled..." in John 14, and in Phillipians 4:6 we are told:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
