View.

I started in worship. Thinking of an assignment given to me by my counselor. “Self-work” is difficult when you’re searching your soul and heart. This is what I painted in worship while thinking about how I view myself and how God actually views me.

I see myself lowly, with low self-confidence, as if I’m not enough sometimes, as in the shadows viewing myself from the past, but God sees me “Big.” A man of God. His child. Loved and valued by Him. I have to see myself in His light as a man with confidence in front of others, in public, in critiques, -basically I have to apply how God sees me in all aspects of my life. I can no longer walk in the shadows of my past or in the way I view myself.

Here’s what I painted:

Palm.

I painted this picture …


but my client saw something else.  She saw a palm tree trying to hold on during hurricane Matthew since I painted this around the time the hurricane had been long gone. She asked me to paint another one but with different colors. 

Here ya’ go…

Hope.

Lost a “lil brother” last week.  Been wanting to paint, but nothing would come out but a black background and a split heart.  Today God gave me hope that Cody now sees the beauty that’s on the right of this painting- gold, white, purple, orange… beauty that we have yet to see.  I love you lil’ bro.
