Art Smorgasbord - To My Love

Greetings!  I had a truly blessed weekend, since my wife Lisa and I celebrated our wedding anniversary.  Therefore, I am dedicating this post to her.

After some secretive planning on my part, this is what Lisa woke up to on our anniversary.  My initial inspirational piece for the color scheme was an amber depression glass decanter that I found a couple of weeks ago, which I used for the flower bouquet.  As to the card, it was inspired by Romans 15:5,6, "Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like-minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."  Although we've literally been through good and bad times, as well as sickness and health, we've loved and honored each other with the help of God.  Therefore, I felt this verse was a perfect blessing for us to continue in our lives' journey.

Since Lisa and I thoroughly enjoy going out on dates, we took advantage of this special occasion.  As it is written in Proverbs 5:18, "Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth."  Therefore, we had a lovely time conversing and sharing a bottle of wine at our favorite little place in town.

After the marvelous weekend, I was inspired to create the 3 pieces above.  "A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband," Proverbs 12:4, and that is what my wife Lisa is to me.  Her love and support continuously inspire me to grow as a husband, father, and professional.  She has also provided a loving environment for our daughters, whom couldn't have a better role model.  As an artist, she is also my Muse.  Thank you, Lord!

I apologize if I have bored you with my writing in this post.  However, I hope you've at least enjoyed my artistic escapades.  Godspeed!

Like-mindedness is a very precious gift & I continue to marvel over how two people can agree in taste who are totally different in personality - only He can pair the two up. Congratulations to you both - such a heartwarming post reminding me of His goodness.
May He continue to richly bless you both.

Arnoldo....your writings are always wonderful...no need to ever apologize for them! Love all of your creations! The one that you've submitted for Simon Says Stamp and Show particularly caught my eye because I love the colorful design! Love the bits of this and that that you have collaged into such a amazing piece. The twine wrapped around it...an added bonus! :) Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Happy Anniversary and I really really love your write up and the Bible Verse from Proverbs 5:18. <3 Candy

Congratulations on your anniversary! What a lovely time you must have had. So much love and care went into planning etc. I love to read such dedications. I have been blessed again after being widowed to have found another soul mate, and know they were both gifts from God. I love the sketch of your girls. Just so lovely.

Oh thanks for reminding me to look up the anniversary "gift" for 15 years. How many years was yours? Not sure I'll be able to cope with the word verification again, have you thought to take it off, you can always moderate messages instead if you are worried. BJ#27

Arnoldo,
Honoring your wife in such a public way shows your heart, that of a mon of God. The card is very beautiful not unlike your wife.
