I woke up to a most beautiful day and went straight outside and started painting. The painting morphed several times into different subjects until it finally showed its true colors. I knew it was right when my heart felt light and happy but also realized the sadness involved. When I could sense God weeping for his only Son that he sacrificed for us so that we could have eternal life.
After I was happy with the background I laid this little twig against the painting. I liked the way it looked but didn’t want to attach it to the painting. The little twig is a dogwood tree that I tried to transplant from my son’s yard to mine. It was never happy after being moved. My husband thought I had told him to chop it down and after he did I felt so sad about the little dogwood. So I am thrilled that I was able to use in my painting after all. I laid it against the painting and painted the shadow of it.
It was so beautiful outside, I was inspired by all of the sun, greenery and bits of pink flowers that I could see.
These are close ups of the painting since they are a little difficult to see in the large picture.
The canvas which is actually a 27 x 23 piece of plywood. I leaned it against an old lawn chair because I knew I would be using a waterbottle to spray it as I worked on it.
This may be available in my Etsy Shop later. I hope you all have/had a fabulous, grateful and thought provoking Easter Sunday.

He is real! I found one of his teeth in my yard last evening. It plummeted smack down into my backyard landing with the pointy root down.
Imagine my surprise when I gently pushed and pulled what I thought was an ordinary mushroom and when the ground finally released it, it was Jack’s tooth!
You have to see this. So would call this extremely desperate or extremely thrifty? I found this through Amy’s blog, Mod Podge Rocks!
