today's art

The reason I'm posting these is because I really, really, REALLY don't want to.
It's part of my whole, "Get over yourself" plan.
This is my experiment with water colors, water color pencils, and markers.
Someday I want to learn how to use these tools satisfactorily.

In memory of Linda.

This writing a verse in the painting thing is an idea I got from Michelle Pendergrass who makes beautiful art. 


  1. Really like this, Kay! It's beautiful.

  2. Dittos Loretta.
    What's so intriguing is that the picture is alive, in that I interact with the image and see many metaphors, especially woven with scripture.

  3. Thank you both! I really appreciate it. It's so hard to be objective about my own stuff. I'm glad you like it.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing! This is lovely! I am a firm believer in the cathartic nature of art.

  5. A very pretty experiment and I say kudos to you, I can't work in watercolors for nothing!

  6. Thank you, Kelly. It did feel really good to put this onto paper.

    Thanks, Missy. I don't think I can work with them either. LOL

  7. Oh Kay. This is gorgeous. And maybe I'm having a little spiritual moment here--like the Holy Spirit is patting me on the back saying, "Look at this! This is because you listened to me!" I'm sure I'm not the first one to ever write a verse on a piece of art, but Visual Prayer has been such a big part of my life and at first, I didn't understand that God wanted me to share it. I mean, I knew He wanted me to give the prayers away...but I didn't know I could help others to pray their own Visual Prayers. The hard part for me in all of this is (much like when I first started writing for an audience) I can't call myself an artist very easily. I couldn't call myself an author, or an editor when I started those rolls. I'm hoping with Art Every Day and with God's grace, I'll somehow get comfortable in my own skin. Which includes things like this--you coming to my blog telling me you'd like to try my "style" and I have to accept that I do have a "style" LOL Then coming here and realized there's a catch in my breath when I look at your style with an aspect of my style wrapped in it.

    So I'm here to say, don't sell yourself short. Your art is gorgeous. I love this painting!!

  8. Very pretty. Want to borrow a book or two? They haven't done me much good. :) Mom


I love to hear your thoughts!
