This remains my personal favourite painting of all time because right after i started this piece, i read the exact same verse in my daily mass reading. What a loving affirmation from the Lord!
I took up watercolor painting over three years ago, painting infrequently once a week, but after a crisis, i gave up painting totally for six months before picking up my brushes again in February this year. Here, i must express my heartfelt thanks to brushespapers and createarteveryday for their encouragement to me, and to eugeneholstein for his quiet support and prayers for us. I am also deeply grateful for the wonderful support of my family, especially Ben, in pursuing my art again.
After much coaxing by my art mentor to apply for membership into the watercolour society, and encouraged by lindamartinandersen, i brought it to the Lord in my prayer. Eventually, i agreed to let my mentor apply on my behalf, and let God’s Will be done.
On Monday, i received news that i had been accepted into the watercolour society. It was totally unexpected as membership is stringent and there are far more qualified and experienced members than me. I feel happy yet very apprehensive as i really don’t know what and where God is leading me.
My fervent prayer is i will remain ever faithful to HIM. Far more important than any breakfast of coffee or tea, eggs or bread, is His daily WORD Who is the strength and life of my soul. I am amazed at how, with the help of His Holy Spirit, i managed to paint and write His Word over two days. I doubt i can ever do it again. 😉
Thank You Lord for Your graces and blessings showered upon me and our family. By R
