You’d Think I’d Know How to Do This!

I am a veteran blogger. I’ve been blogging for over 10 years!

But this is the first blog I’ve tried to create using the new block system, and I feel as old as I am. Picture me as someone from the ’80’s being introduced to an iPhone.

So, if you are just discovering this blog, I’m an artist trying to set this site up in order to feature my art and hopefully find a market for it online.

Be patient and keep checking back. If I can find a young whipper-snapping teenager who already knows how to program satellites, I might get this up and running, soon.

Blessings,

It’s More than Art; It’s Worship

If I could say only one thing about my art, I’d say it’s not really about me, the objects I paint, or what I do with the proceeds of any piece I sell – it’s all about the One who gave me the talent in the first place.

From the beginning of the pandemic, when I first started drawing simple greeting cards to send to my congregation (I’m a pastor), my reason for trying to do my best was based on Colossians 3:23, “Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as something done for the Lord and not for people” (CSB).

Now, to be more specific, every painting I do bears my signature and the reference to another Scripture verse.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 5:16 (KJV)

Worship is what we do to acknowledge how good God is, how worthy He is of our praise, and how much we love Him. It’s also what we do so that others may see how good He is.

Therefore, with every painting the public sees, I pray their eyes are lifted upward to the Source of the talent put to canvas.

God bless, and thanks for reading.
