Perspective was inspired by some of the adoption training we were able to do. We learned a simple, yet profound concept: Your perspective is formed by your experiences and the “truths” that have been spoken to you. This might seem defeating as we interact with others with so many different backgrounds, but as a Christian it also brings hope. If we can speak truth into the lives of others and give them wonderful experiences with God’s love, then our perspective can potentially change the world for good.
This painting was created to be auctioned off at the Ordinary Hero benefit event. I’ve had the pleasure of teaching two children who have had their lives changed by this wonderful organization doing amazing things in Africa. They are both wonderful Christian young men who are using their talents and experiences to bless others.
This painting was created to be auctioned off at our adoption benefit dinner. It is to remind us that if you are searching for God or His will you need only ask, seek, and knock! Too often we quit asking because the wait seems too long or the answer isn’t what we want it to be, but God does work all things out to bless His children!
“Miles” is a 3 ft by 2 ft multimedia painting I created as part of a commission piece series for McPherson Veterinary Services in Murfreesboro. Miles, our 4-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, has been visiting Dr. McPherson since he was a puppy, and he loves her and her amazing staff. Dr. McPherson is redecorating her office, and we have come up with this funky style to depict some of the adopted cats and dogs that are her clients. All of the money from painting these adopted pets will be going to fund our adoption, so this series is both meaningful and a lot of fun. The first room is done, so swing by and check it out if you’re in the area!
“Magic” is a 16″ by 20″ oil painting created as a special gift to some of my friends who recently gave birth to a precious baby boy. His nursery is inspired by Harry Potter, and his mom loves to read. I used their house colors in the sky, Hogwarts castle is popping up from the book, and of course a quote had to be included from Dumbledore!
Michael Busey is a wonderful Christian man with a wealth of knowledge about business and finance. He recently started a new business venture as a State Farm agent in Murfreesboro, and he asked me to paint this 10′ by 10′ wall mural of Murfreesboro in the office entry way. If you are local, swing by and take a look.
“Stay” is a 20″ by 30″ oil painting commissioned by some of my friends from small group at church. They are wonderful, creative and talented people so I was honored to be asked to paint this work. This painting hangs in their living room as a reminder of where they’ve been and where they’re going as a couple.
