I pray each of you had a beautiful and very Merry Christmas celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
I can't believe how long it's been since I last wrote a post...yes, the busyness of the season got the best of me, leaving me with no time to tend to blogging about my creative life! But boy, let me tell you, I was like a little elf, working non-stop on so many handmade gifts. As the weeks go by, I'll share what I made.
But for now, I want to share a mixed-media painting that I recently finished. It's titled "Captivated" and that is my heart's desire for 2012...To be Captivated more and more by the amazing love of Jesus! and I long for His love to spill out into every area of my life with more and more fervency! Oh yes Jesus! sanctify me in Your truth, Your word is truth...John 17:17. This is my heart's prayer for 2012, what's yours?
I created a background with hand written prayers, printed scripture. hymnal pages, and even a few Bible pages.
I added color and used lots of different techniques to create the mood I wanted, then I painted over that with the figure of a women on her knees, worshipping and reaching for more of what her heart longs for...she is captivated!
My heart longs to be completely captivated by His love - I hope yours does too?
Happy New Year!
Ps...One of my Christmas gifts this year was a flatbed scanner and also a photo printer! Yea!! I'm so excited. Now I will be able to offer prints of my larger paintings in my Etsy Shoppe. I'll let you know as soon as they're available! : )
