Support Artwork 4 Hunger Official Donor Drive Page

                                               ☆ Tamara's sponsorship campaign  

You can make a difference for one child!
I'm painting a series of paintings to show the work World Vision is doing to help children and families living in poverty.
Please, join me on cheering me on and giving to World Vision's East Africa Hunger Crisis fund. Our gifts will save precious lives and help stop the further spread of famine. Because of grant funds, our gifts have 7X their regular impact, which will provide emergency food, clean water, access to life-saving medical care, and more to children and families fighting for their lives.
Inquire within to see which pieces are still available. 
One of the best ways to help a hungry child is to sponsor them.

The warmest blankets of peace snow only from the heart.
~Layne Russell

šŸŒ¬Painting #6 in my art project series. With summer around the corner, this photo’s winter wonderland seems too far away, but I heard many of you are still getting snow! 

❄️ Art project series

I loved this peaceful photo by Laura Reinhardt/ World Vision of a mother and son walking in the snow. Painting it, I quickly noticed that the boy was not wearing a coat or boots. As I was going a little further I can’t help but notice there is nothing there but snow (everywhere) and below freezing temperatures! I don’t like the cold, I can’t imagine being around no vegetation, but this little scene warms the heart! To learn more about this story and how you can help with coats and boots for a child living on poverty, go to the story below.

"The winter landscape in Amasia, Armenia, was one of the most beautiful and unyielding vistas that I’ve ever seen. Winter can last up to seven months out of the year here. I loved this little moment of connection between a mother and son as they walked through the desert-like snowscape to get water for the family".

“We wanted warm clothes more than food,”

Folk art enters a place, warms the colors, softens the edges, and plays in the yard. It is the tipping point, the key element transforming a house into a home.

"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'

Then the King will answer, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me
Matt 25;24-25

“Sonali twirls outside a Child-Friendly Space across the street from a brothel in Bangladesh where her mother works. I love this moment because her carefree dancing and beautiful dress reflect who Sonali is inside. Her name means “golden.”

Painting #5 of my art project series. I just loved this photo of this little girl "Sonali" twirling in her own little world in the middle of a brothel. I am so thankful for World Vision’s child friendly spaces to keep her safe because of sponsors that are willing to sponsor children at risk!  My husband asked me why I picked a photo that was so difficult. and of course I said I like to torture myself. :) but really, it is part of the story, a story of “freedom” for a child just being a little light in a dark world. 

 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Cor 3;17

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,because he has anointed me 
to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind,to set the oppressed free,

 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
