EYES TO SEE THE TRUTH

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.

2017 Is Over With A New Beginning For 2018

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!

SHE WILL BE A WOMAN SOON

This is a beautiful young lady that is growing up fast, they all do that never stay small for very long. That is God’s plan to be born, loved, trained, and grow up hopefully with the moral principals taught to her by her loving family. I am personally proud of this young lady because her grandmother, my dear friend, has shared her grandchildren with me ever since the youngest boy, Tanner was born. 
We all have complex moments in our lives but I believe this young lady will make her family proud. This an 18 x 18 graphite, graphite powder, drawing on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. Permission granted by ZAP Photography.

I hope each enjoy and relate to this beautiful young lady. Have a blessed day.

I AM Is Knocking

This is a door knocker from a picture taken in Greece by nephew, Brandon Burns, and I was given permission to paint my interpretation. It is 14 x 18 on Fabriano HP 300 paper, using watercolor pencils in a wash, then using Polychromo pencils for the door knocker.

I do hope you consider the title as much as the work itself. Have a blessed day.

CORKS AND CROWNS

This is the last of a series of paintings I did of friends and myself while we vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard together. For five years we would gather to spend a week at “the cabin” that was in the family of one of the ladies. We came from Florida, North Carolina, California, and Texas so it was quite a combination!

We had lots of fun, solved the worlds problems, and watched the World Trade Centers come crashing down on a black and white TV which changed everyone’s world in the United States of America forever.

This is 5″ x 7″ on Stonehenge paper, Polychromo, Pablo pencils. My reference.
