I've been working on some crosses this week that I'll be posting for you all.  I spent my whole afternoon Sunday after getting home from church just painting.  I REALLY LOVE PAINTING ON SUNDAY!  It seems to just be a natural response for me after a worship service.   I love working with color and texture.  They were done with a combination of acrylic paint on canvas and collage done with dried acrylic paint.  The hardest part about doing these, was cleaning up the mess afterwards and how much time each one took...but I loved every minute of it. I called this first one Peace!  I like how the green background really contrasts so well with the bright colors in the cross. I'm working on more of these in different colors, and I'll probably post one a day this week.  Stay tuned!

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
