A project of people, growth and faith

Faith is not the power of positive thinking; it is believing in God and trusting that His will is always best even when you cannot understand why.
~Shari Howerton

One of my art shows gave the vendors tulip bulbs last year and this is one of my favorites. 

Summer is underway  and for most of us that means hot weather, vacations and outdoor activities.   I still have appointments with my family member to tend to, but thankfully they have slowed down a little, so I can get some painting done.  The project I am working on right now are a series of three paintings.  I am calling them "A People Project"  a series of three paintings from photos that I love of people in quite different settings.  Two are almost finished and the third I haven't found which photo to use yet.  I am trying to paint what I truly love and would like to see painted myself.  Painting people can be most fascinating and the most challenging also.  Hopefully, in my next post I will share some progress. 


Day one



I was in charge of our tiny garden this year.  Gardening is actually similar to art and to anything in life.  It takes a step of faith to plant, paint or do anything on a bare canvas, a sheet of blank paper or a plot of dirt. Moving forward with faith allows growth.  Hope in miracles from an unchanging God with a trusting and fearless heart.

And so the project begins! 
A project of people, growth and faith.  

More to come... 

Open your hearts to the love God instills... God loves you tenderly. What He gives you is not to be kept under lock and key, but to be shared.
~Mother Teresa

Grow and bloom
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love.
Ephesians 3:16-17

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1
