This painting was commissioned to be given to Mr. Solley on his birthday by his family. I know several of the branches from this family tree, and I think it’s safe to say that he’s a wonderful, Christian man! Happy Birthday!
God has taken care of my dear friend through a major valley in life and truly made all things new for her in the beautiful state of Oregon. She took this picture on her first trip there, and it is truly amazing how her life has changed in just one year. Put your hope in God. When others fail, He never will. He will even make something more beautiful and durable out of the broken pieces!
This is another funky oil painting I was able to create for McPherson Veterinary Services. The photos I was given of Shula led me to believe she is a real character.
This oil painting was inspired by Jimmy Needham’s song “For Freedom” and was presented as a gift to Annie Lobert, who rose out of the sex industry and into the arms of the Savior.
Although she is younger than I am, Martina Eddy Smith has had a huge impact on me. She is incredibly selfless and loving. She is brilliant and creative, but humble. Most importantly she walks the walk God has set before her with transparency and grace. She and her husband want to foster/adopt in the future and she began writing books and selling them to raise the funds. She blessed us in a huge way by not only asking me to be the illustrator of the book “Seasons”, but also donating the first shipment of books so 100% of the sales went to our adoption fund! Those who ordered the book know how special it is. Check out her website for upcoming books, riddles, and fun ways to motivate children to read at www.poempixie.com.
This painting was commissioned by a wonderful Christian family to show love and support to the Batey family after the loss of their son, Paul. He was well loved by all and was also a talented musician and an avid outdoors-man which are both highlighted in the painting itself. He is still missed in our community, but he lived his short life for God, and he ran his race well!
