My family loves sailboats, and the ocean. I love black and white paintings, so I decided to combine all three! This was a joy to paint! This piece gets many compliments. I sent a picture of this painting to many friends on Social Media along with a another painting I did. The purpose was to decide which one I should enter into a contest. This one won an overwhelming number of votes, but on the end I went with the other one for the contest due to the details. Hope you will enjoy this as much as I have.
To be able to express feelings, emotions, hopes, failures on a canvas is such a relief and a blessing. Just like Pablo Picasso said, "The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." I truly believe we all have the capabilities to be artist. But this, this quote from Leonardo da Vinci, is what I want to be all about. "Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art." I want so desperately for the Sprint of the Lord to inspire my paintings, because where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17. I chose Almost Home Art because I want to always remember how James 4:13-15 says "your life is but a mist, here for a little while and gone tomorrow." I'm going home, how will I leave a mark that glorifies the Lord?
