Art Smorgasbord - Pathways

Life is filled with with a plethora of pathways for us to choose from.  They come in all types of configurations such as straight, windy, or narrow, and may arouse a broad array of emotions such as grief and exuberance.  However, even the darkest pathways are manageable if we abide in Him, and He in us (John 15:4).

Beautiful artwork, every one, and I particularly like the ABC pictures. Thanks for a nice post to read.

Inspiring pieces, love your photo of sun dappled stairs and Ex libris especially - very unique!

Linda said...

Your posts always have a nice variation of art projects Arnoldo. I epsecially love your thoughts and photo for the IA challenge.
Yes, vaya con Dios.
PS- one of your comments to me last week spurred me on to work with my gelli prints-so thank you!

bellefrogworks said...

All your work is always so different and all so good. I love your Jesus drawing - he is not "pretty" and the Bible tells us he won't be in Isaiah. Thank you as always for sharing your faith boldly as we are asked to do. HPPF

Paula (PEP) said...

Those two journal pages are rather special. The lettering of the first is lovely with the flourish & heart & I do like the way you used the arrow in the sec on.
Have a lovely weekend.

G is for exercise also because it is only GOD who GIVES me the GRACE and GUMPTION to GET off my GLUTEOUS-MAXIMUS and GET to the GYM!

see you there! said...

As usual there is so much to see in your posts and I like it all. The bookplate is a clever entry for the APR challenge.

Gloria said...

I love your Ex Libris tag for the APR challenge. My other favorite is your "Beloved" page with the older couple.
Have a great week, Arnoldo.

Winnie said...

Such beautiful inspiration as always, both spirtually and in artful ways. Your journal page with Jesus on it is remarkable, and so is the love letter, truer words were never written. Fun Anel is moving along nicely. She does better at excerising than me! Hope the storms this week have not been to harsh in your neck of the woods. Enjoy the weekend!

TwinkleToes2day said...

Fab lot of art as usual Arnoldo. I'm impressed with Anel going to the gym. She's a good example to her peers :0) Mo

Tracey Fletcher King said...

a rich and wonderful visit as always... I like how you link together your work for the week in such a coherent way... and the bookmark is fab...xx

Aranthe said...

Beautiful work (as usual!), but that photo of the Episcopal Diocese and the "Loving Pathway" word art piece are particularly appealing to me. The flourish in the latter frames the word "God" and the heart so well. (And I'm still trying to figure out whether the heart is a 3D element or simply a well-executed 2D one.)

stefanie stark said...

I like your creativity and the quotes so much! And it such a great idea to create these different pathways (harmony, health, literature, love and of course the timeless one). Great work!

Arnoldo: Do you play "Draw Something" on your I-Phone? I would love to see your drawings if you do. Let me know. You would really crack up to find out what an awful artist I really am!!!
