Hey everyone!

Go and check out Finestra Decorative Hardware website and blog.  I’m in there!  Amy was so nice as to include me in their blog.  Thank you Amy!

Also I am working on a commission canvas for a new friend I recently met in Community Bible Study.  She blessed me with the opportunity to paint something very dear to her heart.  The Jordan River in this picture with an amazing rainbow. The finished piece will look a little different as she has asked me to add some wonderful elements.  You will have to wait and see it finished, I am not spoiling the surprise!  Here is the photo I am going by and the first layer of oil on the canvas.  I will post as the painting progresses.

Yes, I know it doesn’t look like much now, but just watch over the next several days…

Also I am finishing up two pieces of furniture.  Can’t wait for the finish product on these babies.

Hard at work!  You know I hadn’t planned the finish like this but once I started I saw something really cool to do to this table.  Wait and see!

And finally, the next new oil painting in the works. You can see it come to life.  This is Pawleys Creek here in SC. No worries, I’ll show you when I am done!

Okay for some reason it won’t post my picture.  How odd!  Everything else did.  Well, I will show you in another post.  It’s late and I must get up early in the morning.

Good night world.

God Bless You All!

Diversify!  Diversify!

I have found in our countries economic chaos, that my ability to diversify and more over, my willingness to do so is what actually keeps the wheel rolling.  We are definitely hitting a rocky road, but pulling together with others, finding other outlets for our work and sometimes even doing jobs that just aren’t attractive keep us going.

My dear friend Terri Harris of Harris Arts and I have joined forces to tackle this opportunity together!

She has some of the most awesome ideas for cabinetry and furniture and we are working on creating samples here.

I met with one of my favorite designers yesterday and we have two pieces to put some unique finishes on.  I will keep you up to date on these.  You’ll love them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are a few finished pieces she has done.

I am so excited to work with Terri again.  We have worked together on other jobs over the last few years and not only having we completed the projects in less time, but it has provided an atmosphere for us to learn from each other.  We have different ideas, different areas of expertise, different training and by coming together not only do we have a blast, we also are expanding our own knowledge and abilities.  We keep each other going.  We lift each other up.  We encourage one another!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recently I have changed my display at the gallery my fine art is in.  I have removed some pieces that just seem to be getting too much attention and distract from the ones that are more relative to the galleries expression.  (Wow, did I just say that like that?)

Here is what the new display looks like.  And for those who can stop by, we are:

The Island Art Gallery

At The Village Shops

Also I so enjoy keeping Carley busy!  That blog is growing in size and in followers.

We are doing God’s work!  

Not only is it great reading material that helps us put things in proper perspective, there is some fun artwork and cool merchandise available.  I am steady working on some new designs that will blow you away.  And we are offering wholesale prices to ministries who want to use Carley Stuf for fundraising!  It’s a must check out place.  I have decided to tackle learning HTML and figure out how to do some design work.  I am only learning and reading right now.  I will let you know when I am actually brave enough to design something.  Here is a peak at Carley and me, go check her out!

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see I am staying busy staying busy.  Oh my I almost forgot.  I am about to launch a new blog site dedicated to the painting, In My Father’s Lap.  I finishing up my testimony and that will be published by the first of next week!  This we be a place to share your story, your testimony and for those who this painting has spoken to, to tell the world what the Lord has shared with you through this painting.  Many have already purchase prints and other items of In My Father’s Lap and the testimony they give is simply amazing and encouraging.  I would them for them to share these stories and this will be a place to do so.  I will be adding a page displaying items for purchase and ministry fundraising ideas.  Watch it grow and bookmark it to come back to and share with those you love!

This is an amazing project.  40 feet of cornice finished like the above.  I’ll bring you progress reports as it unfolds.

It’s going to be so cool!
