Artists for the Children of the World

On Friday, March 13th Good Samaritan Ministries is having a fundraiser for orphans and widows. I'll be there at 5:30 for the dinner. Many artists (including me) will be selling artwork for the cause.

Create Peace is currently a sketch in draft form, and will be in watercolor pencil. 18"X24". I'm pouring my heart with love and prayer onto this piece every day to be finished by March 13th.

Heart shaped tears of a white dove (symbolizing the Holy Spirit) fall on the earth. Two hands hold the earth together. Each finger has skin tones of many colors. Where the dove's tears fall....
The earth heals.
Each finger on each hand has a message as it holds the earth together and the dove flies above the earth and between the two hands:
  • Dream of Peace
  • Pray for Peace
  • Live in Peace
  • Forgive for Peace
  • Create Peace

The completed arwork will be posted online soon.

In addition to this original piece, many limited edition prints will be available for you to choose from.

Toddler Fairy

This is a sketch of my daughter as a fairy. I've decided to start experimenting more with watercolor again. I've been using pen and colored pencil lately, and I want to start working with watercolor more. When I finish her, I'll post again.

My Light Magazine - February Cover

Check out
My Light Magazine!

I just love the poem by Don Ford, Another Heavenly Flower Blooms, and the story, My Valentine's Day Card, by Jaclyn Morales that I got to illustrate. I also made the cover of Saint Valentine.

There's a Valentine's Day card from God the kids can make, too. Click here to see it!
