Heres what Im up to While Im praying over our adoption and so many other needs.
Im knitting a scarf for the Youth Auction. Knitting socks for someone that shall remain nameless in case he finds my blog. (they are portable and keep my hands busy)
I also started a sweater for my son last month and cant wait to start the second skein on it once this scarf is done.
I told the Youth I would donate a painting for the Auction and pulled this one out and tweaked it a bit here and there. This was a fun project we did when I was taking classes. We drew out one object in different positions. Then use a BIG square brush to get the paint out quickly while the paper is wet. Once that color is dry we could go back in for fiddly stuff but werent allowed to play in it long. She was trying to teach people like me how to get in and out of a painting. Now I did spend a few hours yesterday and today tweaking it, walking away and looking at it anew to tweak a little more today. :) its hard teaching an old dog new tricks. I shouldve taken a before and after picture. When I took pics to send my daughter for her objective artistic opinion I loved how it looked on the table with the palette, brushes etc all lying around. Just was so real and in the moment. I shared with you how much I loved sitting under my mothers wing as a child and love going into other's studios and seeing the artistic mayhem. I have a little corner in the back room/ dining room. One day I will have a studio. ;) Anyhow I named this one Galations 5:22. I really like how it ended up.......
The sun is shining today again and I feel like I am finding myself again. Amidst the grief and chaos. I have alot on my plate for this month and I am doing my best to get back into the real world and function again. I continue to know that we are where God wants us. I continue to rest in Him and know that He is carrying me when I let him.
Under His wings,
