Drawing a Day - An Offering

"Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you." James 4:8a

Focus for yesterday in study was "I'm as close to God as I choose to be." and what choices I could make throughout the day that would bring me closer to Him. So I painted going to Him and of course, offering Him gifts (praise, worship, love, honesty, faith..etc).

This work was also created differently than usual...which I have a feeling may be more often than not in the near future. I just started with a black pen and started to doodle. Nothing was drawn with pencil first, all just spur of the moment line. Then when it came to color I just played with reds and blues not caring where they really ended up (inside lines or out). When I left and came back the watercolor just blew me away...it wasn't what I thought I put down. God was very much involved with this piece and I like it that way. The paint is very loose, not too concerned about staying the lines, not too concerned about if the fairy looks right or not.

The purpose of the piece is to tell a story, to fuel an emotion that is directed to the LORD, and to "Draw close to God...".

You are lucky to be able to draw so well without pencil first. If I were to do that, It would be HORRIBLE. :P

It's lovely and very peaceful and soothing!! *HUGS*
