About 7 years ago I started this blog “Heavenly Blue Fine Art” because I felt lead to name it this but soon learned I wasn’t technology savvy. That’s when I started a blog using just my name. During this time I learned how to do just enough to get by with a blog. Of course I never made money or much progress with getting my artwork out to the public (with the exception of scammers).
Recently I have been blessed with taking an online course by Matt Tommey. He has 4 books out that teaches you how to have a heart for God, and how to listen to the Holy Spirit. How to do what the Holy Spirit asks you to do as an artist plus Matt teaches you how to “Build Your Brand” in the business world.
I’m coming clean with this information because I am no longer trying to get my artwork and business going on my own. I firmly believe that God is in control of my life, my artwork and besides He is the greatest creator of all time, right!
I let myself be led by others to believe the lie that because I have Essential Tremor and have to use a light box to get my pictures on the paper that it’s really not “original artwork”! I’ll no longer believe that lie because no one knows how much effort and time goes into each piece of my work! There are many other lies that I have believed that held me from moving forward in my artwork but that’s behind me now. God’s word says that all things are possible through Jesus Christ.
I do hope you will follow along as I move forward. I still am not technically educated but I too will continue to grow and learn. Please feel free to leave constructive comments on my pages.
I was Honored to be asked to do a Three Step mini demo in Ann Kullburg’s newest DRAW Landscapes in COLORED PENCIL. http:AnnKullberg.com
Ann in a very giving person! She is one artist that “Passes it forward” giving the new artists an opportunity to further their career. I have been honored to be in two of her COLOR Magazine for COLORED PENCIL and two of her CP TREASURES and two of her CP HIDDEN TREASURES!
SO I WANT TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO ANN!
I hope each enjoy and relate to this beautiful young lady. Have a blessed day.

It is that time of the year that all the trees are turning all sorts of beautiful colors. With permission from my daughter Tisha Clinkenbeard I painted a picture of their cat Blue Eyes playing in a pile of fall leaves. This is 16 x 20 on Tan Mitenes board with colored pencil.
