This watercolor painting is unlike previous artwork that I've done. The Lord has been calling me to step out with my artwork. I had been struggling with how to paint God Honoring artwork. So when I saw the Engage Contest to paint Ephs: 6: 10-20 it inspired me.
I prayed God would give me an idea and he did. The Idea came to me in the middle of the night as I lay awake. Often When I can't sleep I talk to God and pray. So I was thinking how to make my painting point others to Jesus. That's when I got the Idea, I thanked God. The rest was watercolor on Arches watercolor paper. The People in my painting are likenesses of my Family members, my self, church family and some are made up to portray certain professions.
This Painting will Top the list as to how my canon of works develops going forward.
I prayed for God to give me more verses to paint and now almost every time I open my Bible I get some leads on what to paint. I read every day, so it has been almost overwhelming. Halleluiah!
