I am working on the sketchbook project for 2018. It is a small little sketchbook that will be in The Brooklyn Art Library.
The theme I picked is “no worries”. I believe no matter where you live in the world we all have worries but if we put our faith in Jesus Christ we are saved by grace. We can give our worries to him and have joy and peace inside no matter what troubles are in the world.
I am painting global women from all around the world who are determined to live a life filled with joy and peace in their hearts or you could call it no worries.
These are not perfect women, they are just ordinary women living with their faith in God who has granted them the grace of salvation.
Hope you will enjoy seeing these women. Meet Bethany.
This is a name that is both Christian and trendy. It means grace or gift in Hebrew.
Joanna is shown as the wife of Chuza, steward to Herod Antipas while being listed as one of the women who “had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities” who accompanied Jesus and the Apostles, and “provided for Him from their substance.
It is VERY COLD in Florida. Who would have guessed. I am not a winter person and therefore have been staying home as much as possible. The cold weather inspired me to do “January Girl”
“Lilac Girl” was inspired from book I read titled, “Lilac Girls.” I hope this painting inspires women to fight for freedom, love, and second chances. You can also check this painting out on my site.
I added a picture of the book. it is based on real women in history. It is a very powerful and emotional read.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”
And God blessed man. Genesis 1:1,27
Blessed is the man who is like a tree planted by streams of water
That yields its fruit in its season,
And its leaf does not wither. Psalms 1:3
Behold, the virgin Mary shall conceive and bear a son,
And they shall call his name Immanuel
(which means, God with us.) Matthew 1:23
My word for 2018 is TRUTH.
My wish for this year is a new beginning, a blessed year.
A year we attain wisdom, understanding, and truth.
May this year bear much fruit.
May I stay in the word and through the word know and live these principles.
This is my goal for 2018.

Rooster- Original watercolor and soft pastel painting. My goal for 2018 is to do A Painting A Day. I am starting a little early which I am hoping will help me get in the routine. My passion is art and if I want to sell it and make it my full time business I need to spend more time painting. I am excited to see where next year will take me. Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my art. you can find any of my art prints for sale on Etsy or my originals at Ebay.
