Let There Be Light

My daughter bought some beautiful purple tulips, and every time I went to visit her I thought about how fun it would be to paint them. So I borrowed them. It took me two days to paint them, and this morning when I looked at them I thought they were much to dark and dreary…The thought that came to my mind was…Let there be light. So today, I tried putting more light, more contrast…

Life needs more light, especially when we are worn and weary. Let there be light…I’m meditating on these beautiful words today from our heavenly Father. May God give you light and love and peace…

Oklahoma Redbuds

Worked on a plein aire painting of the spring colors… Redbuds are the star of the Oklahoma landscape this time of year. I’ve always loved the dark brown color of the tree trunks and the lime green of the newly forming leaves with the pinkish/purplish redbuds… Love it…
