Light of the Vine
Our family gathered clusters of white, green, red and purple grapes from our garden. The luminosity and the lusciousness was fascinating as the sun created a beautiful spectrum of colors. This evoked anticipation of the delightful, juicy flavors we were about to experience. Capturing the beauty of the grapes in the sunlight brought feelings of gratitude for the bountiful harvest and I reflected upon the miracle of creation that makes it possible.
Jane’s poinsettia was sitting in her kitchen catching the sunlight on the colorful leaves. I wanted to capture the incredible palette of reds with a “splash” of color the moment I saw it. Now this is one of my favorite paintings.
Jesus Smiles Love
Heaven is a place of joy and happiness. When we see Jesus again His smile will radiate His joy and His love for us.
My daughter is an amazing gardener. She planted these daffodils on our terrace which are so vibrant in the sunshine. They remind me of my beautiful daughter and also the promise of springtime.
Daffodils and Violets
Daffodils and violets cheer up the day with dashes of color and sunshine! My friend, Gloria, grew these flowers in her garden and arranged them in the white basket. Then she generously sent them my way so they could brighten up my canvas.
My son and I had an extra day at Bear Lake after the other family members had gone home. He painted a golden field with late autumn trees and I found an idea in a book which inspired me to paint in a style that was “quick and loose’. Both of us painted into the wee hours of the morning and were pleased with our creations. I will always treasure those moments with my son.
