Nativity: Place of Origin (Week 49)

Story behind the painting: When I posted the last batch of ornaments I painted, I had someone order 13 Nativities.  The only Nativity in my ornament collection was the black, white and gold silhouette but she was ordering the “colorful ones.” I realized she thought the church ornaments were nativities and just like that, I saw it too.  I love it […]

WHAT GOOD CAN A LITTLE MORE LOVE DO? A LOT! (still bringing #Catalyst2014 back to my city)

One of my favorite things about Catalyst is that they give a voice to people you may not have heard of, but who are quietly changing the world in the name of Christ, one simple act of kindness at a time!
