New blog entered today 13 July 2020 "Breath of Life" God bless.
Welcome to New visitors especially. May 13 2020
Sunshine is such an important factor for everyone in this time of pandemic, depression, anxiety and despair spreading all over the globe. To see the light of the sunshine in the early morning (later morning for me as I slept in), is such an uplifting moment.
I want everyone to experience an uplifting moment today. Something that brings hope and light into our "Eternal Night" times.
I do not wish to preach to anyone, but simply to share God's Word, for God knows, we need hope in our lives, eternal hope to take us through these difficult times and to bring us forward into a brighter future.
In the beginning, God said, "Let there be light" and there was light.
"Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night."
"Let these lights from the sky shine down on the earth"
"God made two great lights, the larger one to rule the day and the smaller one to govern the night." (Sun and moon to us)
Jesus said, "I am the light of the world."
"The light shines in the darkness and the darkness can never extinguist it."
Let each one remember that today is a new day and the sun is shining somewhere around the world, bringing hope, warmth, light and life to all living creatures. May the Lord's light shine in your life today. Marie xx
Quotes from: Genesis 1:3, 14, 15, 16, John 8:12, John 1:5
Please do not be offended by the portrait of an unknown Aboriginal man in my Blog.
No bad intentions are meant in any way if this man reminds you of someone you know. I show no disrespect to coloured people and ask that you forgive any indiscretion you think you may find here. I respect the original folk who lived in this land before others arrived. God bless you all.
Remember, I have an Irish heritage and being a portrait painter has been part of my life since age 3 or 4 when I drew girls in fine dresses. It is simply my artistic expression. I love bringing an image to life in my art and in books, so it gives me immense enjoyment. When I created this picture I loved every moment and learned a lot about skin colour, people's expressions and the difficult in bringing an image to life. I fell in love with this painting and will always treasure it.
