And here is the fun story that goes with it.
Last week I attended CreationFest NorthEast with my younger son Thomas. It is fairly rural camping in the mountains of Pennsylvania where I had absolutely NO phone signal. There were some truly amazing speakers, lots of different styles of great Christian music and art.
On Saturday there was torrential rain and I spent the day in my tent with some art supplies (that is until 6:00 pm when it stopped raining just long enough to enjoy Natalie Grant and grab some LoMein for dinner.) The rain returned at full force.
Here I am drenched after Natalie and before we were evacuated and my car got stuck in the mud.
I had a pad of watercolor paper, my Derwent Inktense blocks, gesso, watercolor crayons, a black Sharpie marker and some sketch pencils. I have a good friend that comes in to the place I work. He is homeless and he knows the word better than most people I know. After the lunch is served we usually have the opportunity to share some time in scripture and conversation. Before I left for Creation we were discussing the true meaning of fasting in Isaiah 58 verses 6-7.
I created the first page for my friend. I loved the bright colors of my InkTense blocks.
The next few scriptures were inspired by notes I took at the various speakers I went to during the week. Here is Psalm 34:18 also done with the Inktense blocks. Isn't it amazing how different colors can give such different effects?
Matthew 4:19 done with watercolor crayons.
Isaiah 41:13 also done with watercolor crayons.
Joshua 1:9 done with Inktense blocks and gesso.
and the last one was inspired by a bookmark that fell out of the devotional HOPE that I picked up at my local Goodwill.
Psalm 37:4 done with Inktense blocks.
I hope that you have enjoyed joining me today with some little bites of His Awesome Word.
