Journey Unfolding

Journey Unfolding – 20x20in Canvas

We are all on a journey together our paths are connected… each one individual and unique. Just lately I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching in my sketchbook and painting. I have a real passion for this kind of work and I want to share more with you as my journey unfolds. Everyday I’ve been spending more and more time painting and less time on the computer, getting back to my true passion and that is paintbrush in hand. I will share more with you later. I still love my computer stuff but I’m trying to bring more of myself here for you to see. Following my dream has always been my thing, when I was 6 I told my dad I want to be an Artist when I grow up, he told me you won’t make any money doing that. He wanted me to be a secretary. Don’t get me wrong, secretaries are great, my mom was one. But its not what I wanted, I thought to myself I still want to be an Artist. Here is one of my DREAMS… I’m putting it out there… to have an exhibition of my original paintings. I am taking the steps to one of my dreams.

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.

-Psalm 139:13-18
