This blog is simply the natural continuation/progression from the book: Simply Inspired. How could I stop with just 40 pieces of art? Weekly you will find art and photographs kindly mingled with scripture and perhaps a poem or prayer. Each will be my hand held offering, my thanksgiving and praise back to the King of the Universe, the God that saved my soul! Life is short and God is good! Receive. Explore. Enjoy! (all thoughts, art and photographs are my own) And feel free to copy or forward.

I've been playing with poetry for the past couple of years while my painting-self sat languishing on the shelf, not forgotten, but out of sight, gathering dust but still with a gentle heart softly beating its wings.
During my trip to New Zealand I discovered that I didn't have to choose a singular creative expression, that I could actually paint and write, and I now open my days wide expressing myself in which ever medium I am drawn to at the moment.
So here are my first three pieces, (9x12") oil on canvas board, that have come to pass. I'm in the process of writing a poem about my return to this medium and the fear that consumed me as I tentatively embraced the possibility/opportunity for failure and the freedom that arrived - danced right in - on wings of grace.
