21-days of (short) everyday, joy and spirit-filled sketch sessions based on the Psalms.
Please use these sketch sessions as a catalyst to create your own everyday, joy and Spirit-filled sketches.
Why short? Simply so it is doable as a daily devotion. You might want to allow extra time to create backgrounds, or not. Or extra time ahead, the night before even, to close your eyes to listen and imagine. And put gesso on your page.
- You do not need to fit your sketch into 10 minutes — I am finding that mine drift over. All. The. Time. (tho most are between 10-15 minutes.)
- Your imagination was created by God. When I was leading a ministry school, we learned that often a fleeting thought was His prodding. Yet we dismissed it a (fleeting) nonsense. All that to say, use your God-given imagination!
- The object of the workshop is not to copy what I am doing, but to listen and see with the Holy Spirit, garnering techniques from my short sketches.
When my son was born over 30 years ago, I turned my brief free moments toward art. Now, as a full-time artist, I create to inspire and encourage not only myself, but you, too!
Second only to my passion for Jesus and creating, I find I have a passion for teaching others. My mom always wanted me to be a teacher—she was one pretty smart lady. Whether you are a beginner or have been doing art for years, you will enjoy my “hey – we can do this!” attitude. Because that’s what I say to myself every day!
I seem to grow more and more curious all the time. So I am constantly learning and often share this with you too. Letting you know what works and what maybe doesn’t.
Join me at my blog, on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube. Some of my abstracts are for sale on my website, as well as my new line of Athleisure - dynamically designed active wear for on the court and off. Some digital downloads are available and Etsy. You might enjoy my book(let): Bible Journaling: Honoring the Spirit. More on my book page.
Let me know how I can help you!
Jesus and art are my passions. “As for me, I will praise the Lord.” (Psalm 104:35)
