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.

Joanna-Women of the bible


Joanna

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.

The Bruised (Brokenhearted) Pear


I started taking a colored pencil class hoping to learn some new techniques and work on my patience. My first exercise was doing this pear. I will have to say it took me 3 hours working on this project I really enjoyed it. It helped me to relax and slow down.

This bruised pear is a reminder of when we are bruised, hurt, and brokenhearted God is our source of hope and courage.

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

we often wish we can escape troubles- the path of grief, loss,sorrow, and failure, or even the small daily frustrations that constantly wear us down. God promises to be our source of power, courage, and wisdom, helping us through our problems. Admit you need God’s help and thank him for being by your side.

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!

Does this look like a Irish girl to you?


Well I am not sure if she looks Irish or not but I thought the Ishish name Sorcha which means ” bright and shining” fits her perfectly.

Fashion is my passion!


I love everything to do with fashion! I love all the fashion magazines and checking out what is trendy and in style. I love shooting fashion photography and I am endeavoring into drawing fashion illustrations. Here is one of my attempts. I used a photo from a recent photo shoot for my inspiration.
