God Shed His Grace

godshedhisgrace

May 2016

I’ve been working on this for weeks!!! This is a painting inspired by life on the farms here in the mountains of Cades Cove, Tennessee! I always love capturing light and feeling in my paintings. A good painting can transport you in time or make you feel like you’re in the scene. In this piece, heaven’s light is breaking through the clouds of a September cold front. You can feel the fresh cool air blowing in over the mountains. The trees are just faintly tinged with autumns warm tones and some mallard ducks have arrived from Canada to spend winter on a southern farm. The wind mill stands strong and faces the winds of change, as sun casts its light on this homestead that reminds us of a simpler, more beautiful time gone by. This painting is a 18×27 and is titled God Shed His Grace. I Hope you all like it!

Tender Moments

April 2016

On this beautiful spring morning, a momma black bear is taking loving care of her cubs. She has just lulled one of them to sleep and now the other child needs her attention. Being a mother has to be the hardest job there is. But regardless, you can see the patience, love, and strength in her eyes. She’ll help them grow, teach them, protect them, love them, and be their role model. In these Tender Moments of their childhood she gives them memories and love to last a lifetime.

During the many hours of painting this piece, I drew inspiration from my memories of my mother while growing up. I was one of five kids, and no doubt we caused her a lot of stress by how crazy we could be at times. Love is patient, love is kind, and that’s what we got from mom. This painting is dedicated to her and to all mothers who rarely get the credit they deserve..

Come Unto Me

March 2016

We are all aware of how painful, lonely, confusing, and restless life on earth can be. Often times when I'm alone with my thoughts, I find my heart seeking peace, rest, and renewing. I know I'm not alone in this feeling. When Jesus walked on earth, he saw right through our masks we put on each day that say "I'm fine". In this painting, we see Jesus as the loving shepherd. He has called the lambs out of the dark brush and briars and into the Son's light. As they draw closer, he reaches out to hold them. I hope when you view this painting, you can hear Jesus say to you "come unto me, you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

The large tree to the right is one of the trees in the real Garden of Gethsemane, and the shadow of Jesus and a limb from the tree cast a shadow of the cross on the ground. They remind us of the pain and agony that the Lamb Of God endured, so that we don't have to. Each time you see this painting, remember to always live your life like the little lamb that has jumped into the strong loving arms of Jesus. It is my sincere hope that this painting blesses you, and brings peace and rest to your heart

Homecoming

February 2016

Many churches have an annual tradition that they call homecoming. Church members who have moved away to other cities typically will come back to church that Sunday. It's always a lot of fun to reconnect with old friends.

We have a Christmas tradition that brings all the family together. We may not see each other during the entire year, but at Christmas, we're laughing and sharing our favorite dish together. In this painting titled Homecoming, I am envisioning the family getting together to celebrate Christmas and enjoying the warm fire in the fireplace. The setting is the turn of the century with an old Victorian house and a horse drawn carriage parked outside. Come on in and enjoy the warmth of home and the aroma of a fresh baked apple pie.
