What a joy it is to be able to look at what God has created and then try to describe it on a piece of paper or canvas with pencils, pastels or paint!

Christmas Card for 2009
I'm working on my Christmas card for this year. I know I want a camel but not sure this is the one I will use. I thought I'd share it with you anyway. They are really odd looking animals but definitely equipped for living in the sand with the way their nose closes, their ears fitting so close to their head, their splayed feet for walking on sand, their coarse hairs around their eyes to protect them from blowing sand not to mention the extra fat they carry in their hump. God knew what he was doing when he created them - amazing!
Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
I'm a Christian, a native Texan and a self-taught artist. I started out working mainly in graphite (pencil) but in the last couple of years have added pastels to my preferred mediums. I love the vibrant, luminous color pastels offer. I try to do something creative every day and will share it with you here on my blog and sometimes I'll share bits and pieces of my life outside of art. Most all my art is for sale on my blog, if it doesn't state that it is for sale, ask me. I also do commissions. Feel free to visit my websites and browse through my galleries and visit my Etsy Store too - the links are below.
If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For by Grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God; not of works lest any man should boast.
To those who have given me blog awards in the past, and to those who would like to in the future - thank you! I've decided to go to an "Award Free Blog." Not that it isn't appreciated. It is just tough deciding which blogger should be awarded next. Please check my list of blogs below that I follow - they are all "award winners" in my book (blog)!
