It's been a long two months! I'm sure it's been unnoticed since traffic here is usually pretty low...

I have an illustration job! I'm working on creating illustrations for children's song charts for a friend... here's a few examples so far:
Short and sweet... off to WaWe to say 'hello' and then back to painting!

All this turmoil and suffering in Haiti has really reminded me to be grateful for all that I have... as for our friends, thankfully they found their children safe in Haiti! You can read all about it on their blog at:

Check back again later this week to see my work from last week for both IF & WaWe.

can anyone help?

These are dear friends of ours... for over two years they have been adopting two children from Haiti. A little girl and a little boy, ages 4 and 2 respectively. It's been 3 days since the earthquake and they still are unable to get in contact with their liason in Haiti or have any word from their agency on the well-being of their dear children. Please pray for their little ones as they wait to hear any news at all. If you know someone in Haiti who can help, especially if they could get to Tabarre 27, please please please let them know...

Above all else, pray for peace for this family, safety for their little ones, comfort for the survivors of the earthquake, and for God's divine hand to uphold our fragile lives.

IF: renewal

The new year truly is a time for renewal. The ocean is one of many things I think of in renewal... rest, peace, tranquility. I'm also reminded of Romans 12:2 which says, "and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." So with this new year I commit to setting my mind on things above...

waaay behind!

It's the new year, so I'm starting out by still catching up on 2009! I don't even remember when this topic was for, IF: hatch... I ended up turning it into a project for Watercolor Wednesdays.
New years art resolutions:
1. complete projects on time (if at all possible)
2. create more art
3. be intentional
