Box for a teen...

Wood-burned and painted jewelry box for a parent for her teen for Christmas (she is currently in the hospital with pneumonia..please pray) She loves angels and pinks and it was my first try at lining a box. Thanks, Connie, for the instructions! :-) I just added the pic of it in its presentation bag. Thanks, again, C!!

Spirit of Truth

John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of Truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

Neglected work. . .

I finally brought this table in from the garage to finish--I guess when I finish the "thought" that the Lord sends me, I figure I'm done!

This is River of Life from Revelation 22:1-5

1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.

The Body on canvas. . .

I haven't got the lighting right on this yet for pictures. It's so much deeper and richer on canvas in real paint. The colors and a lot of it changed. I didn't listen to any music when I worked on it, I tried to listen to Him......I'm seeing all kinds of different things in it. It's freaking me out, so I'm meditating on it. . . .
Slept on it last night (well, not literally ON it) and there is still work to do. The real one is more luminous than this depiction. This is way out of my comfort zone. . .when I do murals, or prayer boxes, I know where I am. I've never painted like this before--I'm painting from my spiritual 'gut' and it's a little uncomfortable to put this "out there" but I'm trying to gather you into the process.

The Body

I took this image of leaves in the street and manipu-lated it. This is what came to me. We see the bright and flashy "real" colors of that which is corporeal here on the earth...but we long for the Spiritual realm...we can see the Light and the promise of it..and catch glimpses of it. We try to reach into it and grab hold, but sometimes the "real" world keeps snatching us back. The Body is really that Spirit working within our fleshly selves...that glimpse into joy and happiness that is the true, REAL realm.

I can't decide if I want it positioned this way or flip it lengthwise so the lighter part is top. I started this way because if the lighter part is up, then that makes the Spiritual realm "up there" and although I like that look....this way shows that the Spiritual realm and "our" realm coincide and interact. What do you think?

Church Mural

The upstairs at the church that I did another mural of this type on the DOWN stairs...These pictures don't include the Treehouse room...the biggest room. I'll add that in a few days. One room is the "Lake Room" and another is the "Camp Room"
All the walls in the rooms are painted.
