this is a self portrait i did this year. it has significant meaning behind it-- i had an amazing encounter with God this year and i felt God spoke to me so vividly and it was as if he literally "splatted" me with paint. this may sound funny-- i think it is. but i realized what a sense of humor God really has. this painting means alot because i was feeling frustrated with the fact that i havent had a whole lot of time to put into my artwork for the past few years because i have been SO busy with my life-- i had three kids in a ridiculously short period of time and am home with them, this was not my life plan-- nor is it what i had invisioned for myself doing at this point in my life-- so i asked God--basically, to show me 'what do i do?' in a time where i feel so frustrated... and i really felt God speak to me. it was amazing and i found a new sense of empowerment and validation.. that although i have been unable to "create" in the way i would have liked to-- in the arts-- i have in a real sense-- created three of the most amazing kids ever. this was my task-- and i AM doing that. i know now that my time will come. that i will be able to have more time to devote to painting as i so love to do... and i know God has greatly blessed me with not just the ability but the passion to do this dispite my circumstances.
