Give Yourself Grace


One of the paintings headed to Trinity Spotlight in Art.  If you've a chance to attend the show, I highly recommend it.  It is truly an amazing collection of work.  I always feel humbled to be there amongst the giants.  Lots of new originals are headed to the how.  I am very, very excited about that. 

On a side note, I was thinking a tad about the words I stamped on this particular painting.  I stamped them yes, but really didn't give much thought to the words at the time...but I always feel led to stamp the words I do.   That makes no sense...or rather makes me seem wackadoodle, but literally I just feel  led to say things in certain paintings.  But typing this I realize really and truly, grace is something you can not give yourself, but rather is a gift given from God.  Perhaps I stamped the words to remind myself that the gift is indeed there.  Waiting for me.....to accept.

What/where is the Trinity show? I don't know of that one.

This weekend we were in Birmingham visiting friends. We had a couple hours to kill so I went online to find something to do. I found this art gallery that looked like my kind of thing and went to check it out. We walk in and what do we find? Your paintings! The gallery (AWESOME gallery btw) is Naked Art. And your paintings are beautiful on your blog. But they are A-MAZE-ING in person!
