Live Painting Experience

I just had my first opportunity
to paint live during the song service
at a Women's Conference.
The Conference was called "Embrace"
and it was held at Heartland Assembly
in Ankeny, Iowa.
My artist friend, Angela Meijer, invited me along
and had it all set up when I arrived.
Before the music began, I thought about what I should paint.

I listened to the music and painted the message I felt led
to paint for the women attending.
It was of love, acceptance, freedom for forgiveness
and overwhelming mercy.
It was fun to do but even more exciting was the
experience watching how the painting
seemed to unveil itself right in front of me...
The painting is 36" x 36" and features a 
winged heart
with the word "forgive" written inside.

 Project: Code Blue
(Part of a short poem by Renee Mak)

Sometimes the end of a project is only the Beginning

"Three  different artists,
working together on one goal,
didn't set out to change the world,
but hoped to help at least one soul!
They shared music, poetry, paints and books...
and learned new techniques
that could change the looks 
of the art they created
for all to see,
in Valley Junction at a little gallery.
Artwork by Angela Meijer
They worked hard together and 
they laughed carefree...
They discovered old fears and
 conquered adversity...
They talked of despairs and
then celebrated each victory.
With apples and chocolate 
and champaign, too...
they discovered new ways
to make it through!

As time for this group drew to an end,
they discovered one truth,
one noticeable trend..."
