My friend is having a baby girl and when I asked her if I could paint her something for their family. She decided on Isaiah 52:7 and the beginning part of the verse for the painting.
Close up of the bird and flowers.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. I ended up painting over the words once before getting to what it looks like now. I'm glad I did, it looks much better than my first try!
This was my first painting since I had surgery on my right hand and elbow and it was harder than I thought it would be to grip my brush for long period of time. I hope with more painting and practice my arm will get stronger. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to paint this for such a sweet family.
Painting at the shower. This shower was the most fun baby shower I have ever attended. So blessed by all the wonderful ladies that came.
Fear not for I am with you,
Be not dismayed. For I am your God. I will strengthen you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
My dear friend was moving away and I wanted to give her something to encourage her. This is the verse she chose and the color flowers she wanted. I love this verse for how it points my friend to the only One Who can truly help her and comfort her in this time of transition.
This painting is on a 16x20 canvas and is painted with Acrylic paints and oils.
If you ever need a gift to encourage someone dear in your life, let's see if we can't design the perfect gift!
