The painting on the left is entitled "Come Up Here!" and is one of a number of inspirational works which my daughter, Samantha, has done. I know I may be biased but I think her Art is beautiful and uplifting. Many others have told her the same. God has blessed her with so many gifts. Following is an email which she sent to family and friends after making the decision to have a painting of hers professionally scanned in order to make it available in high quality prints. Her contact information follows if you are interested in ordering a print.
Here it is! I finally had one of my paintings professionally scanned and available for print(giclee). If you are interested in purchasing a print, please contact me through my email address at the end of this email message.
This is definitely a new venture for me. There is no pressure for you to order at all! My interest is to bless others with a more affordable copy of my work rather than having to pay higher for an original. I should be offering a wider selection but right now I'm experimenting with the whole idea of printing my work, and it does cost a lot to have a piece scanned into a giclee.
Thank you for supporting me in this endeavor whether its been through your encouraging comments or suggestions.
If you want to know more about this artpiece titled, "Come Up Here!" and my work in general, read on:
"Come Up Here" was originally painted at the request of a friend in Nov. '07. In Revelation 4:1, God invites John to heaven where he is given revelation about who He is and what His plans are. I wanted this painting to invite onlookers to encounter God. The eagle represents the person flying past the earth's atmosphere and into a heavenly realm. Its to encourage you that God wants to reveal Himself to you in all His glory.
In regards to my work in general, the Lord gave me three dreams in 2005 to start painting again after stopping when I was young. I didn't value art that much and didn't think it would take me anywhere. But I realize now it is a gift He has given me, not for my sake, but for others. Within the past year, I have had about three more dreams this time where I see the face or figure of Jesus in my paintings. He is telling me that my work is producing an invitation for others to encounter Him.
Thank you! May you be showered with God's love everyday and be filled with His joy!
