My dear, sweet, artistic friend Erin inspired me today to paint with pencils. If you’d LOVE to be inspired artistically, read her beautiful tutorial here at the Soul Per Suit blog. I remembered we had these same type of pencils our kids had in France, called Caron D’Ache. So I stole (borrowed) them from Julia, grabbed a good piece of painting paper, and utilized a sharpie marker. Oh the fun I had. I created three pieces, small in scale, but oh-so-fun. Above is one of them.
If you’re needing a soul break, get out some pencils, some paper, a paint brush and a cup of water and have at it. My pictures aren’t prizeworthy, but they’re mine. I wonder if God feels the same rush of joy when He creates real flowers, trees, clouds. I think He must.
