Where my faith and creativity collide! A freedom freelancer, prayerful painter and clarion for Christ.

George Floyd Is My Son

George Floyd is my son. It’s personal. Until we start looking at news stories as if they are our children’s diaries, we will never be able to be a part of truly loving the world.  As followers of Christ, the only appropriate response to injustice is to personally step into the lives of others, feel their pain, cry their tears, […]


As 2020 begins, it may seem a little weird to kick it off with a January post entitled “Closings.” However, without closings we would never have new beginnings; therefore, they go hand in hand. I’m asking Holy Spirit to give us new eyes primed to see the multifaceted Kingdom colors only “closings” can uncover.  When I think of the word […]

Write About Now

Several years ago the Lord asked me to “take the journey before the people.” I knew exactly what He meant when He asked me to take that leap of faith and this blog was birthed as my “yes” to His request. I knew that it would be risky but worthy business. I also knew that public writing was only going […]

The Value of Reflecting

In this graduating season of reflection, while many are all balloons and butterflies, there are some who struggle with regret and feelings of sadness. _ Many look back and automatically savor the moments of glory but many look back and seem to feel invisible, unimportant, devalued and worthless. _ Most of us, if honest, can look back and find an […]

Glory Garden – #6 Lent Painting

This small 10 X 10 canvas holds much weight. In fact, as I prayed, painted, worshipped and followed Holy Spirit’s lead, I felt the full weight of Glory. He spoke directly to my heart and expressed His message through my hand and onto this canvas pouring out a specific anointing on this particular piece. These are some of the words […]

Blue – #5 Lent Painting

These pour paintings have been a messy, marvelous, new adventure! No paintbrush comes into play and I have very little control as to what the design turns out to be. I get to choose my colors, dump the paint on a canvas and tilt the canvas until the surface and sides are covered. I splattered a few more color highlights […]

Show Your Gold – #4 Lent Painting

If we look for dirt, we will find it. If we look for GOLD, we will find that too. Which filter is our normal go-to? I am having a blast playing with this new art technique, pour painting, and today’s masterpiece has layers of meaning. “Show Your Gold” represent some of my history but it also declares my destiny, your […]

Wonder~Full – #3 Lent Painting

“…Stop and consider God’s wonders.” Job 37:14 CSB “Wonder~Full” The straight line of the horizon How the sky touches sea. The wind that makes a whistle The breath that blows the tree. The symphony of sights and sounds Cascading from the clouds. The golden glow of Glory Makes the Master Painter proud. When ray and rain collide Light decides to […]

Pitchers of His Presence – #2 Lent Painting

I have always been a little outside of the box. I love seeing treasure sifted from trash and I get giddy when I see someone repurpose things in unexpected ways. Earrings made from old watch pieces, bracelets strung from guitar strings, hair bands out of old telephone chords, canvases full of paint with sheet music, bible verses and quotes Mod […]
