Romans 12: 7-9

As I'm trying to decide what to paint and donate to the First United Methodist Church fundraiser, I realize it's very hard to choose what subject to paint for such...the fundraiser auction is for the upcoming mission trip to Costa Rica and ends on April 11th.  Admittedly and not proud of, I am not one to quote bible verses,  however, I love searching for particular ones based off of subject matter.  When I came across Romans 12: 7-9, I knew it was perfect for the occasion.  Of course I had to make it somewhat abstract, as that is what I do!  I hope you like it!  Anyone can stop by the church during the week or on Sunday and see all of the fabulous items up for auction.  The youth would be greatly appreciative of your support.

It's Been Crazy... the reason for not posting regularly here on my blog! Not only has the real estate business been busy in our market area, but myself and a friend of mine (and former co-worker at Holden & Company) Micah Holden have spent the last five weeks or so putting together a new business! It is an art cooperative located in downtown Searcy, Arkansas named Second Saturday Studio! The building we are located in is part of the Main Street Searcy program and we are tickled to have their help and support.

We are starting out only opening on the Second Saturday of each month, hence the name, and had our first one this past Saturday...we had about 300 come through the doors of our little 435 square foot space and we are so grateful...Searcy is not exactly known for it's culture I have to say, but we are trying! It is amazing how many fellow artists we have met starting this venture and we talk to more everyday. They are like we were...doing something they love without a place to show it off and sell it...we hope to change that, so while this blog is going to be a more personal one, I will still be sharing art pieces as completed, before they are taken down to be displayed in the studio...please join me in supporting the artists from in and around our community and pop on over to to check it out...thanks so much!
