Our Pastor and family are on a much-deserved vacation, so our Shepherding Pastor (Dr. A.) filled in. Also had a piano number by our Organist, Paul. The piano is twice as long as pictured, but I didn't have room to draw it all :-) Even got in some of my gardening stuff :-)
Hooray! the first layer has been laid....we can drive on it a little. Decided to paint my HollyHocks against our brick wall. The Garage is across the street and I just put in a hint of the new Asphalt. It will be so nice to get back to "normal." :-)
We are having our Road (that we live on) resurfaced....So these are some of the pieces of equipment we have been dealing with (lots of noise, too) for almost a week now. We can't park in our garages, or driveways--we park about a block away. Like I said, it's been about a week....so hopefully we will have new Asphalt tomorrow! We will totally appreciate our "driveway & attached garage" :-) Maybe I'll go back to sketching flowers & trees......
Our Pastor is away on Vacation, so one of our favorite (other) Pastors filled in....He's Dr. Ainsworth, but we call him "Gordie". I even put some of my blooming HollyHocks in the notes for color. The choral trio was excellent--better than the Gaithers' :-) And we 'sent off' a group of our Youth Group to the Detroit InnerCity
for fixing-up ministries. We do have an "involved Church."
About 15 years ago, a friend enouraged me to come to a watercolor class. That was the beginning of a hobby that I truly enjoy.
A few years later, I joined a "Watercolor Sketchbook Journal" class taught by Catherine Carey author of "A Petoskey Watercolor Journal." see: www.catherinestudio.blogspot.com/
Since then we have taken many trips and watercolored and journaled most of them.
My husband and I are now retired and we both enjoy ministering to people through our Church. He does Hospital visits and ministers to the elderly. I have found that sending people greeting cards with my simple watercolor sketches on them seem to be treasured.
God has greatly enriched our lives with Beauty and I like to show my gratitude by displaying His Glory in my art. I'm hoping that my watercolors bring joy to others, and praise and worship to our Creator. Marj. M.
