Everyone seems to be drawn to one or the other. I suppose there are some of us who are drawn to the desert as well (who would have ever thought), but usually when you take off for parts unknown it is to the beaches or to the high places.
Here are some of my paintings from my Gallery entitled Ocean Breezes
Arizona does have mountains so I share some of these with you as well. I invite you to take a look at some more of my Arizona Dreaming gallery.
Praying for you as you start this new year! Believe good things for your life, step out in faith, trust the Lord and seek after the direction that tugs on your heart.
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
I have included above only 9 of 65 paintings featuring the colorful state of Arizona in my Arizona Dreaming Gallery. I invite you to visit my GALLERY. Take a digital walk around and see if you might find a view that speaks to your heart. Below are two of my favorites.
Today the sky is overcast and that is a wonderful September Surprise for us this morning. Will we have rain – even Weatherbug can’t answer that question until the first drops actually fall. God knows. He, after all, oversees weather:
For to the snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth,’ And to the downpour and the rain, ‘Be strong.’ Job 37:6
He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed. Psalm 107:29
So I pray peace over you this day – wherever you find yourself and in whatever climate. And, should your day allow you the opportunity, stop by and wander among the red rocks, quaking aspens, and spiny cactus of my GALLERY. You will be welcomed.
Have you been to the “Islands”? An island? Or even just the beach? Most of the time just being there – wherever THERE is – is therapy for the soul: R&R. I have loved trying to capture the colors, but also the sound of the ocean. Can sound be captured with a paintbrush?! I honestly don’t know, but I’ve tried to capture the peace, relaxation and beauty of the ocean waves.
I invite you to envision one of these paintings on a coffee mug, on a wall in your home, on a throw pillow or a tote bag! All these are but a few of the many options on my wonderful website, Prayers and Paintbrushes at https://prayersandpaintbrushes in the Gallery section. The 300 paintings are also available as framed prints, on canvas, metal, wood or poster board. Let me know if you have a question, my friend. THANK YOU for visiting my website!
I love the above painting of a solitary tree on a bluff overlooking the Pacific ocean. You can’t see the water from this vantage point, but as you walk to the tree you can hear then see it down below. I thought this was just magical! I is called Off the Road to Hana.
The painting below is a favorite because it was from the first trip to the islands, Kauai to be specific, that my husband and I made together. This painting is called, Kauai Hoaloha. I hadn’t been painting very long. This would probably look a bit different were I to paint it now. LOL
I tried to post my BLOG yesterday on Facebook and it seemed to disappear in a puff of 2021 smoke. Or virus. Or something mysterious and frustrating…😷 So I invite you to look at some of my favorite paintings on the slide show below, then scroll down and read my post written yesterday. I hope you will feel it was worth your time.
