Summer project series Part 2


I have learned to live my life one step, one breath, and one moment at a time, but it was a long road. I set out on a journey of love, seeking truth, peace and understanding. I am still learning.
~Muhammad Ali

It’s about half way through the summer now and it's been a hectic month.  I have just been bombarded from every direction (it is intense) this summer,  but the joy has been in the journey (painting) so far as I carve out time in each day to work on my "Summer Project Series"  There is a part of me that is thinking, why do I do this to myself?  

The other part of me is thinking...this will truly be a miracle if I'm  able to get this done.  

  I really do feel at peace while working on these pieces, in the quiet hours of the morning and the moments I find to work on them.  The craziness of this summer, somehow stops my own voice, and Im pouring that voice into these paintings only.  Maybe that was meant to be, hopefully they can speak on their own and for the subjects involved and their issues with the love of Christ.

This painting is from a photo captured by Jon Warren of World Vision of a mother grateful for the medical help she received for her newborn baby.  A mother may walk for miles, or days to get medical help.  While some babies don't even live past the age of five in some areas, this mama knows that she has been given a gift.  

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young-- a place near your altar, LORD Almighty, my King and my God. 
Ps 84:3
