Sketchbook Project 2018- Bethany


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.

Is it the Dress or the Reason?

Did you go out shopping and buy a new dress for today? Easter is always the day you see everyone out in their new Easter outfits in beautiful pastel colors of pinks, greens, yellows, blues and purples.

Just don’t forget the main reason for today. It is not about your new dress or about the candy and Easter eggs even though those are great.

It is about Jesus and that he died for each of us so that we may live. He Is Risen!!!Amen!

Yesterday while sitting out on the beach I painted this cute little sandpiper!

Grace

Grace, n underserved, unmerited, unearned, favor.

I am a Christian, I’m not perfect, I mess up, but God’s Grace is bigger than my sins.

A thousand times I have failed and still your mercy remains, and if I stumble again I’m caught in your Grace.

Every weakness you have is an opportunity for God to show his strength in your life.

My Grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.

2 Corinthians 12:9

Change is a coming!


Change can be good or bad, it all depends on how you adapt to it. I decided to give some of my art a new look, change, or different view. What do you think? see more here!
