This is another 2 page from my little book of Sometimes I just pick it up..And this is what shows up.
This is Sam...He thinks he can hide behind the words.. I know, I know.  You might have to click on it to see and read the words..To get a closer look.. If you want to.
Did you know that so many people hide behind their words and really are afraid 2 show what is inside their hearts.  You know why Fear!

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed,for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you:
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Have a good Thursday...

My Ears Are Stretching to Listen

I have been working in the little book off and on..I will paint a few pages and then I will pick it up and this is what come off the page.. I wanted her to have big ears because I have been trying to listen more instead of talking.. I seem to talk to much and not listen.  I am trying and I am doing better but I need more improvement so I made the ears pointed as though someone is pulling  them and stretching them to say LISTEN!!!!!!!!
Maybe it is the book I am reading . The title is called Discerning the voice of GOD..  How to recognize when God speaks.. 
Have a great weekend and enjoy the moments.

May you always dream in color,

Reading and Inspiration

24x24 Canvas..  I have been back at the drawing board so to speak and painting over some that I did not like..This is one I painted over, underneath  is too much darkness so I decided to give it light. 
I have been painting on this one for a couple of days..

So my inspiration came from this....Psalm 27:1
The Lord is my light and my salvation
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life
of whom shall I be afraid?

Fear is a dark shadow that envelops us and ultimately imprisons us within ourselves. Everyone has been a prisoner of fear at one time or another.
But we can conquer fear by trusting in the Lord who brings salvation.
If we want to dispel the darkness of fear let us remember with the psalm writer that.
the Lord is my light and my salvation.

I hope you can see the painting  ok with the glare...Is it finished.  I signed it..
Have a wonderful rest of the week and enjoy the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and I always love your comments.

This is a small piece I had done and I thought it was finished but I really never liked it..So it went into that pile that said I do not think so but ...
I picked it up and then I realized most of my art pieces I have to write on them somewhere or it seems to be missing something..  So I think my heart is, as my Blog is stated Poetic Artist.....So now I added one more layer of color and then I picked up my pen and starting writing..Now it is finished..It is just a small 12x12 on board.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week and I do not know about everyone else but it it hot here in the south.
I am staying inside and drinking Lemonade..Yumm...Maybe some iced Tea..No sugar and with lemon.
Have a blessed week and may you always dream in color.

Looking Inside

This is a small piece I had started and set it aside because I just did not know where it was going.  I loved the texture of it and had used my palette knife to put the paint and texture on..It had been sitting on my table   on the easel. I have not been painting or creating for awhile..I would walk up into my studio and walk back  out again.
 My heart was just not  into creating anything.  The truth my heart has not really been into anything for awhile.  I knew it was not but I just did not know what to do. I had starting back into the church and I had starting reading my Bible.  There is where it began.  I had been running from the only one who truly knew me and loved me . I had been running most of my life.. I had anger and fear and Satan had control of me.  I had let him take my joy and my peace.. No more...
So I have given my Life back to our dear Savior Jesus.  You know he never had left me, I had just left him.  God is faithful.
I did know something was changing inside of me.  My heart, my mind and my spirit.
Praise God.  
I really did not mean to write all this down but it just all come out with this painting I was posting.
The day I walked up into my studio.  I looked at this piece and I saw the tree and then I took charcoal and starting rubbing it into the piece and it brought out the details and all I could see was this beautiful tree. Then I thought if we would just truly look inside what would we see and it would be the HEART..

I just tried to give you a small close up of the details underneath the painting.  You can click on either one to get more details of the texture..If you want to..LOL...I hope you will.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope in the future.  I will began to paint again but this time my art will be filled with light and love not gloom and doom.
I leave you with this.
Psalm 96:12
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy

Have a blessed week.
