Here’s a fun new addition for your paint party options – a personalized wooden sign! This would make a great gift for someone on your Christmas list, or place it in your own home to greet your family and friends with a warm welcome this holiday season! (Any season for that matter… just let me know what you’d like to say and I’ll design a fun sign for you to paint with your friends.) The possibilities are endless!
Celebrating the Harvest season with a big, grateful pumpkin! Every season is the season to be grateful! I’m so grateful for so many blessings, not the least of which is the joy painting with a fun group of friends!
Ok, maybe finishing a painting of lemons in a couple hours while visiting with friends isn’t as easy peasy as one might hope, but it sure is a great way to “squeeze a bit more fun out of summer! It was also “refreshing” to try something a bit different with this group. Rather than walking them through a painting step by step, each artist chose their own color scheme and set up their own still life, so I just walked around giving them pointers. I really love how each creation is so beautifully unique (and there’s not a “lemon” in the bunch)!
Painting “en plein air” (in the open air) is one of my favorite pastimes, especially in the summer months. It’s even more fun with a group of friends! I really enjoyed celebrating the first weekend of summer by painting bright red geraniums in a window box with this group of fun ladies!
A big thank you to the “Soul Sisters” bible study ladies for asking me to share about what the Lord has been doing in my life lately. It’s been an interesting year for sure! It’s not every day that you and your husband are sent home from the mission field because he has inoperable pancreatic cancer and then experience the miracle of a complete healing!
Painting is a great way to relax and let your soul recover from the stressful things we encounter in our world, but it’s really nothing compared to the awesome healing power of a risen Savior!
After we enjoyed painting a spring nest, we penned a bible verse in gold, “Fear not, therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows.” ~ Matthew 10:31
Let me know if you have a favorite verse or thought that you’d like to incorporate in a painting!
Kids have a natural boldness and creativity that gives them an advantage when it comes to painting. Let them choose a subject they love, give them the opportunity, the supplies and the encouragement and you’ll have an artist in the making!
