In our area we know have started a celebration of Praise and Worship once a month called David’s Tent 757,https://www.facebook.com/DavidsTent757/, we spend a full 24 hours of Praise and Worship with live music, sometimes streaming music, art worship, and flag waving. Below are a couple of the sketches I have done during David’s Tent 757. (We are distantly related to the David’s Tent, https://www.facebook.com/DavidsTentDc/, that has been going on in Washington, DC for over a year and a half.
Here is the first sketch but haven’t done a finished piece as of yet:
I called it “We pour out our Praise.”
The finished piece:
Will add the finished piece if I get to finish it or create it another.
I have just started a new painting, looks like it might be a series of Christmas Ornaments!
Here are the Scriptures written on the painting:
John 14:27Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
27 Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]
John 14:27Amplified Bible (AMP)
27 Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]
Acts 2:38Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
38 And Peter answered them, Repent (change your views and purpose to accept the will of God in your inner selves instead of rejecting it) and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of and release from your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:38Amplified Bible (AMP)
38 And Peter said to them, “Repent [change your old way of thinking, turn from your sinful ways, accept and follow Jesus as the Messiah] and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ because of the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:38-39The Message (MSG)
38-39 Peter said, “Change your life. Turn to God and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, so your sins are forgiven. Receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is targeted to you and your children, but also to all who are far away—whomever, in fact, our Master God invites.”
As I was pulling up to my house after “paying my taxes at the post office” I said to myself: Mersea you go inside, pick up your guitar and play “Good Good Father” then attempt to paint a picture.” (I’ve had a dry spell in which I haven’t been able to draw or paint.)
All of a sudden “Good Good Father” came on the radio and I sat in front of my house and cried. So beautiful! He knows what we need before we speak it!
This isn’t the version played on the radio but this is my favorite version!
Here are some pictures of the picture I am starting paint…. now I know how a lot of people paint but my medium is usually color pencil and the picture I have in my mind is detailed so I am doing my drawing geeky thing!
After all that I had to do: pool workout, getting some groceries, etc, I came home and did a search for a face to use for sketching. I like to find a photo that I like and then make a sketch with no intention of making the sketch actually look like the person, the purpose is to sketch and get use to the different postitions of the face or the postions. Below is a sketch I did late yesterday afternoon. Hope you like it!
Oh, the paper is actually an off white color but the sky reflected blue on it. 😀
