Luke 5 : 11   So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.

Sometimes a scripture will inspire a painting.

I have always loved the designs that can happen on old signs left out in the rain and weather . They get a sense of time and wear,   I like to try to duplicate this feeling in the Modern Vintage Floral series.  You can see more of them on Daily Paintworks.

I love reading the Bible in the morning and this morning I got the special blessing of reading it with my husband.  A psalm and a proverb. The word is alive, which means to me it has impact, conviction, care and comes from  God so I trust it coming from love.

Hydrangeas are some of my very favorite old fashioned flowers.  I think it is because of the variety of colors they bloom in; but it also is that their bloom time is long and the violet complements every plant that blooms nearby.  They are a photo shoot waiting to happen.  Last year my late pruned bushes didn't bloom, so I am going to look for the bush called Annebelle because in Southern Living Magazine, the Grumpy Gardener told of it to replace the temperamental varieties!!
