Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

Digital Fine Art

In an effort to be more mobile, I have acquired my first wacom tablet, Corel Painter 2015, and Photoshop CC 2014. The power of these art tools is amazing and I have completed my first digital pencil portrait, hand drawn on the wacom tablet primarily with Photoshop's 4H pencil brush, though a spattering of other brushes got used in a few spots.

I still have a lot to learn as i have only had this set up for a week, but I believe it will open many new doors - one of the biggest being that my canvas is unlimited in size, so I no longer am confined to 9x12 drawings.

Back in the US

Ok, I haven't posted in a while, as you can tell. My last post I was on the way to Malawi, now I'm back in the US on a 8 week refresh. I'll be headed back the end of June.

I don't have time for much of an update right now, so here's a couple pictures I drew while there to fill in the gap till I can actually post something meaningful.

(I apologize for the orange hued pictures below, all of these should be black and white but blogger is color shading them for some reason and I can't get it to go away.)
