15 Minute Drawing Challenge: Jeremiah 17:8

Today our inspiration and verse is:

Jeremiah 17:8  (ESV)

He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”

Stop! PENCILS DOWN, everyone.
I am trying to work on my skills. 15 minutes is a super short amount of time to complete a nice painting or drawing. But, it’s a perfect amount of time to focus and be creative! This week I used an old set of watercolors from the kids craft drawer! (Confession: I painted at McDonalds while my kids played on the indoor playground). I hope you are enjoying this challenge as much as I am! Now, snap a shot with your smart phone or camera and leave your permalink in the comments! Can’t want to see all of them!

Today our inspiration and verse is:

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,
15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being,
17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

This week I added an illustration to keep things interesting and challenge myself! I am encouraged by Paul’s prayer today! I am thankful to know that I am strengthened with POWER through the Holy Spirit! 2014 is going to be full of adventure and change, challenges, hard times and beautiful blessings! I want to be strong to notice, experience and participate in my relationship with Christ! I am thankful for this passage!

Day 6: Colorful Wood Plaque

An Abstract Background Texture Of Grungy Blackboard
I found this wood plaque in a craft aisle of a store. I used many different techniques from modpoge to water color pencils in creating this unique wood plaque. The project was inspired by our adoption and my more recent thoughts of sharing in community with others serving. I love the way it turned out and am so happy to share it with…

Day 2: Act Like Men

This is the logo for my 31 Days of Artsy Giveaways for my blog.
Recently my husband requested this verse to be put in our sons room. This call to action for men to lead their families and the church is something we pray God will grow in our little boys heart. I have yet to draw it on the wall of his room, but I put this design canvas so share in the giveaway this month.

And the winner is…
