My friend Elysa who lives down at We Will Go invited me to come down to her house and paint some pictures. She is auctioning them off to help her son raise funds to go this summer to Swaziland!!It will be his first mission trip. They live as missionaries in downtown Jackson.
I haven't made any art myself in years. It sounded like so much fun though!
Elysa is painting a background on a board to dry for later. Carolyn is one of the neighbors and I love her. She has made some really cool paintings!!
This is my picture. What do you think? I had Jimmy cut me a piece of wood and then he made a frame for me. I inked in a lot of the wood grain lines and then used them to make the water. The thought behind it is, "We will be like a tree planted by the waters, our leaf will not wither and whatsoever we do will prosper."
Carolyn painted this the other day. I love her sense of color and design. It's a powerful piece.
