My Life in Words, Art and
I painted this a long time ago during a church service. My painting symbolizes being clothed in The Armor of God. The main focus was using the sword of the Spirit to break away from fear. One of the fears I struggled with back then was the fear of failure. I still struggle with it at times, but will not let is stop me from doing things like my art, writing and learning how to blog.
What fears do you have?
Did you notice the heart on the mouth piece? I painted a heart on the mouth piece, because we are to speak the truth in love.
The Armor of God
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. New International Version (NIV)
My Inner Studio has been doing well so far. Individuals have been mostly ordering directly from me.
I get excited to help promote others, but this book has been edited and has an awesome message inside it as well as provide a good read. So I am excited to promote my own work. After all. I know I would not have been able to get this far without God and I know God placed this book on my heart to help others.
I am just having trouble with getting it on the Google search engine. Guess it will just take a little time. That is another reason why I am posting this blog post about My Inner Studio.
Hope everyone has a blessed day.
I am making a lot of progress on all my projects. It has been difficult with working a full time job and keeping up with the housework, finding time with family, friends and of course our pets that are like family to us.
I have found someone to help me enhance my files for the old children's book that I illustrated called Johnny's Safe Place. I was just relearning how to paint again when Johnny's Safe Place was written and illustrated.
When I first started out, I could not see shades of color, lights and darks and depth. Everything looked flat to me. That is a story I will share at another time.
I would redo the illustrations, but it would take away from showing the progression that I have made. The one I am hiring will improve the illustrations without taking away from showing how far I have come with my painting journey.
I am also in the process of choosing which facts I will have in my Amazing Animal Facts book. I originally had way to may facts. It is hard to decide which awesome fact stays.
I have people asking about my novel which is a rewrite of Trapped Inside. do not think it will be ready for publication until 2021. I am almost finished with it, but have to save up for an editor. Getting things edited is very important.
I still will be interviewing different artists and authors on this blog site, but have to buy a better camera in order to record the inerveiws.
