Welcome to my artsy blog!
If you are amused by my work, want to see the latest things I'm dabbling in, especially unfinished projects, this is the place to be. I will post ideas I have, little mock ups for projects I am wanting to work on, and things I have made for personal use. BE FOREWARNED: I am a firm believer in Christ and not ashamed - you will find a majority of my works here to have religious references and themes! Without further ado, let me share some things I worked on recently:
DNA concept art - This is a very rough idea sketched out (er, painted out); it all sparked with a friend online who I was talking to about the Bible and our roots in it. Somehow we began to discuss our DNA (maybe it had something to do with my church's DNA groups?) - anyway, a LONG time ago when I was a baby Christian, if a truly born again believer at all, I heard someone talking about how "if we looked at our DNA it would be like a song" or that "When God created us and spoke us into being, our DNA was like music" - and that's where this idea came from. It really is not original at all, as you can YouTube this simple phrase "DNA music" and find multiple organizations that have created a way to translate our DNA into music apparently. THAT IS WILD! Anyway, My concept was simply that God is so powerful, and each little piece of our DNA (what do you call it, proteins?) have an entire composition within it. It is probably not Biblical at all, but for an artist it sure makes a neat idea to play out on paper. The fact is, God is so big that regardless what our DNA is really like, it's so much smaller in comparison to Him and His greatness. God designed our human bodies to work in so many wonderful ways unlike any other creature, and our DNA is just one of the most intricate of the things God Himself designed. Who's the bigger artist then? God is.
"In Christ Alone" - One of my favorite modern hymns by Keith and Kristyn Getty. I don't know where the background image came from, but it is not my own. I just designed the layout. I like to keep this up on my desktop sometimes. This is one of my favorite hymns because it is one of those spiritual songs that covers just about every aspect of our new life in Christ and His deity: His birth, death, resurrection, and return. If you haven't heard the Getty's, I strongly recommend that you check their music out, also the others from Sovereign Grace Music!
Prayer - This is a touchy subject but I was trying to help myself be better about praying for others, especially people I didn't know personally. This came about when I was thinking of a friend who needed prayer for her friend who was going through a very difficult time. Essentially, I wrote this out so that it could be prayed for anyone. I went through the Scriptures and found various passages that this prayer was born out of. I wanted it to be a reminder of who God is as well; God is bigger than all our problems, and He is also the God of comfort, our Prince of Peace, etc. - so I hope that if you know someone who could use a good reminder about God and needs the prayer, that you might read over this and pray to God in light of these truths.
