This is a sample of the painting I’ve been doing in this month of December 2020 - bookmarks for the residents of the assisted living center in our town.  I enjoyed making 70 original bookmarks for them.

The message on the back comes from Luke 2:9-11

Thus says the LORD, Who gives the sun for light by day 

And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,

Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar; 

Light of the World

Wanting to try to paint light, I thought of a candle. Then I remembered the ‘Light of the World’ candle I made, and then wondered if I could make a Trinity still life.

Yahweh Shalom

This painting was made using watercolor and Prismacolor pencils. I have far to go with drawing and painting people. The wooden mannequin I used doesn’t bend far enough in the right places, but it was fun trying! I even made a little ‘altar’ out of landscaping rock to use as a model. I’m sure the weight of the real stones Gideon used were enough to hold them in place, but I had to use hot glue for my small ones.

Healer 2

I had trouble coming up with a new idea for a painting so thought I would try Healer again. This one is watercolor and Prismacolor. The healing process is visible in this one.
