Happy Anniversary Mom and Bronson!! Right now I am sitting in a waiting room at MUSC in Charleston, SC waiting…my precious step dad (28 years today) is getting ready for open heart surgery – PLEASE keep him and my family in your prayers for the next few weeks!! My mom’s favorite bird is the cardinal – thought this would be a great little gift for them! Here is a little note I found on the cardinal…

As we observe the cardinal – particularly against the backdrop of the stark winter months, we are reminded that even when things appear bleak or isolated, there is always the presence of beauty, hope, and love. Cardinals encourage us to express our brilliance and reveal our truest selves. Their radiant red is a symbol for us to recognize the gifts in our hearts that we have to give to others in love and friendship.

We LOVE you Mom and Bronson!!!!

Well, I was not going to paint today – I was going to clean up my studio – I am quite the messy painter!! But as I was going through my photo files, I came across this image of the baseball player. Loved the red and the light…loved the action. Thought I’d give it a quick try using this messy pallet of colors.

This painting was inspired when a dear friend’s son passed away last October. The son – James Harrison – had an incredible vision to equip leaders throughout the world who serve those in need – sharing the message of Jesus Christ. In 2006, James, a young man with a powerful faith and heart to serve, responded to a call to travel to Sudan and because of his passion founded With Open Eyes. I encourage you to click on this link and read about With Open Eyes. 50% of proceeds from these prints will go back to With Open Eyes. There are only a limited number! Purchase a print and know that you have helped in building an army of messengers in the Sudan!

Matthew 28:19-20
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
