Family and nature are two of my primary sources of inspiration, but love is probably the greatest of all. After all, God is Love, and I thrive to keep Him in the core of everything I do. Nothing brings me more joy than creating for others and being able to bring a little beauty into their lives through my work. The latter may be through my drawing, painting, paper crafting, designing or decorating. Even as an educator, I use art to create a loving environment for my students to learn in bulletin boards and projects I plan for them to work on.

In closing, I want to thank everyone who left a comment during my last post, and cordially invite you to leave one on this post. Please know that I always make it a point to reciprocate with a comment on your blog, as well as answer any questions you may have and/or clarify issues personally. Your heartfelt words always encourage me to continue to create. I also want to leave you with some words from the Apostle Paul, in 1 Corinthians 13:13, "Three things will last forever - faith, hope, and love - and the greatest of these is love." Blessings!
PS - I "adopted" the painting in the last photograph from Penny Lee StewArt, AKA Crafty Lady, and one of my fellow artist team members at Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens. She loves to create and is very prolific, so last month she put up this gorgeous painting for adoption as a way to share her love of art. I feel so blessed to have received it and will cherish it for years to come - Thank you, Penny!
The "Mother and Daughter Love" is fantastic!
Hope you had a wonderful Easter! (looks like you did! :)
