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:


Breathe into me.

Breathe your life into me.

I’m tired.

Breathe new life into me.

I breathe your breath. 

Breathe your new life into me.


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…

The Cross will Prevail.

A request by a client.  It was an original, but this is the first time I have reproduced something I have already painted.

-Thank you Cheryl!
