WOYWW? The Letter K

Having Spring Break, I was able to keep-up with my family, as well as utilize my creative energy in the arts.  Although I've learned to work very well under stress, I recognize that the usual multitasking I live with drains the time I can spend with the latter.  This week, I played homage to the letter K on my workdesk through…

"Before the rooster crows twice, you will disown me 3 times."

iPhone Shot Digitally Enhanced
Ramona's Inspire Me Monday - Week #168
Denise, Roger & Leslie's ABC Wednesday - K is for Keen Eye
Bella's 52 Photo Project - Week 47 {Liquid} Vessels
And the admiration of my daughter's keen eye for decorating our St. Patrick's Day dinner table, as well as my wife's exquisite culinary know-how.

Tomorrow, I go back to work and to my graduate studies, so God willing I'll be able to carve a little time to regenerate through the use of my creative energy in the arts.  Thank you for stopping by and leaving kind words.  Blessings!

Love your lovely art! It is so sweet to see these verses illustrated.
Chat Noir said…
So glad to see your name in the comments box....and the first one too. I very much agree with your sentiment, one should indeed live the life we imagine. Its odd to think that somehow we can have a practice run, but once you leave that thought behind, the world opens up. I appreciate your artwork and reading your philosophy too.

Hi Arnoldo, I know exactly what you mean about keeping the various parts of life going so they don't stress you out too much. Keep calm and crafting, that's my mantra at the moment....
I adore that caravan card you made, that is so lovely and made me smile! I bet the recipients will love it as well :-)
Hugs, LLJ 24 xx

I love your art. Your creation of the cock crowing 3 times etc is very good.And that card in the shape of a caravan is absolutely great! (You Americans call it a trailer) Well done you! Your relatives will be very pleased indeed.
Have a great week,

Love your treatment of the letter K, Arnoldo - it's a lovely challenge to meet! Nice to see some Hebrew on your art work too. Shalom is a very special word! Thanks for your very kind words and continuing prayers for my surgery tomorrow. Less than 24 hours to go now.

Happy belated WOYWW,

Your art is so varied and each one is beautiful. I love your fun retro camper:):) Wishing you all the best with your studies and work. Hope you're able to carve in a bit of art too.
Gillena Cox said…
Such a fun piece, luv it Arnaldo . Happy PPF

Much love...
I remember being immersed in the world of work plus grad studies and have no clue how I would have got through it without being able to paint to de stress... I don't remember getting through as much as you manage though... hope it is a great semester for you!

Beautiful rooster card, and lightning. It's interesting how the Lord used the rooster to convict Peter.
Stanley Hattman said…
Always waiting for your posting! My favorite is the Isaiah illustration. Kudos!
bellefrogworks said…
What a wonderful way to prepare for Resurrection Sunday! I love them all - maybe the rooster most because I have a thing for chickens (even boy chickens!)
denthe said…
Love your idea of playing homage to the letter K. So good that you had time this week to spend with family and recharge your batteries.
Donna B. said…
I just love your rooster Arnoldo! Perfect for our challenge. All great projects as usual, I particularly like that cute camper! I hope you enjoyed your spring break, mine is this week and I'm loving it. Thanks so much for joining us this month at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.
You surely took K on quite a journey. When I saw the rooster I lost my breath for a moment thinking about how Peter must have felt. Great art with that wonderful map and faux stitching. Thank you so much for posting your entry with us at Word Art Wednesday this week.
Blessings, Carole
