Cord of Three:
“Two are better than one, because the reward is great when they toil together. If they fall, one can lift up the other, and if it is cold they can warm each other. One alone is easily cast down, but two standing together will withstand. And a cord of three braided strands is not easily broken.” Ecc 4:9-12, RSV; Added text: We are strongest when we are bound together with Him and through Him...into a beautiful cord of three braided strands. (gold braided cross, roses)
This was one of my very first pieces, in the early 1990s. I am not an artist. I have 3 degrees, none of which have anything to do with art or business! I saw this illustration in my mind’s eye, but it was a stretch for me to draw. I finally accomplished it through the use of yarn taped to a piece of paper, braided and then traced. This was in the very early stages of my drawing, at the beginning of God gradually providing me with the courage and the skills to illustrate His Words.

“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances” Phil 4:11 NIV
(Samuel the YorkiePoo)
This little guy is one of the busiest, happiest pups I have ever met…and the epitome of happiness and joy in life. One of the reasons I am a “dog person” is because of the joy that they live no matter what their circumstances. Would that we all could be as happy and content no matter what our circumstance!

October 9, 2006: “Come with Me to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mk 6:31 NIV;
Added text: Claim your own quiet places for quality time and respite with God. (garden bench)
This is the bench that sits on our front porch. One of my favorite things to do is create places of sanctuary for spending time with God. These places can be anywhere, at any time. I wanted to create a picture one might literally “jump into”, a picture of peace and respite and rest to set on your desk or anywhere for that purpose. I used not only watercolor pencils for this, but a combination of all: watercolor paint, acrylics, pen and ink. This began my combined use of the different media to create the pieces.
