Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

Final...almost, needs a few more touches and a signature.... I hope you all enjoy the process .... and I hate to even mention it, but ask that you please respect the copyright of these ... as they are in the gallery and as prints if you are needing one....just contact me through my website to the left ...thanks!! These all all more vibrant in person!! I have been studying Psalms 51 and it seems to be affecting my art ....I didn't realize how much what you read affects what comes out of you .... so I'll be reading more!! God SPEAKS ..... loud and clear all the way from New Zealand!!! A total stranger to me ... but not to God .... called me out of the blue to just BLESS me!! She talked for over an hour about sooo many interesting things and it ALL was BALM and INSPIRATION to my soul .... a GIFT from the Lord ... He just blows my socks off sometimes with those special connections. Anyway, besides "GRACE" that visited me ... the WORD .... "ABUNDANCE" comes to mind this month. And I've done (or He has!) an abundance of art pieces to share with you. All of these are what is called "Pulled Art" ...From Mystele's class ... where you put on or lay on paint colors of your choice, randomly until it begins to tell a story in the shapes .... all so much fun .... BUT THE ONE CALLED "FORGIVEN" is the one that no way did I do alone .... it is one of those things that you "know" He orchestrated using your eyes and hands to complete .... I am awed by what came out of it and it is Psalms 51 ... which is about David's guilt ...(and ours), the idols that get us into trouble, that break our hearts and how to deal with it .... THEN the others are pulled out of more fun happenstance ..."SNOW QUEEN" has Psalms 100:1,2,3 on the hills ... and THEN "EMBRACE" has a thought that came from the Blog " A Splendid Adventure" by sweet Mary on a post called "Serendipity" on 11-11-10. Taken from Romans 12:2, if you want to read it.... And there is the cardboard "HEART" with collage and a scripture from Psm 51:6 as well, just fun ....and an ABUNDANCE of it this week!!! ENJOY.... I know it is long, but I'll be busy for a couple of weeks with THANKSGIVING ....got LOTS to be Thankful for!!! Love and Blessings from my heart to yours ....may you be comforted and loved by HIS EMBRACE!

Dear Sherry, I came accross your blog by just browsing others. I wanted to let you know that your work is beautiful! it truly is amazing how the Lord inspires us to do things. I was inspired by the Lord to serve a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The blessings that he has given to me and my family and the people that i talk to every day is truly amazing! i've been able to help draw people closer to there savior and redeemer Jesus Christ. i love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it truly blesses lives. In Romans 8:16-17, it talks about us all being heirs to God's kingdom, making us all Princesses. Sherry, you are a princess in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. God Bless.

Say It In Color said...

Thanks to you all for such sweet comments! I got to share on Psalm 51 at our small church...Christ is our only Savior and our only hope...He continues to feed me through His Word and I hope I extend the very best I can to you all. Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving! sherry
