in our eyes

22 The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
23 the LORD has done this,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 The LORD has done it this very day;
let us rejoice today and be glad.

Psalm 118:22-24

I did two faces today.  I have to say that the first one didn’t get finished and will never be shown anywhere.  I’m learning that if the sketch to begin isn’t accurate in the features, the painting won’t improve it.

My method in these is kind funny…. I do the face, then the background, then try to come up with a word and then a verse…  Did you know that in the NIV bible, there are over 500 references to “eyes”?  and I went through them all trying to pick a verse…  A lot of them are in Chronicles and Kings and refer to whether king so and so did evil or good in the eyes of the Lord.  LOL!

I’ve just finished reading Scott McElroy’s Finding Divine Inspiration.  It’s about artists partnering with the Holy Spirit.  A good book.  I went on a book binge with several similar titles last week.

I’m excited that I am going to be offering prints of these paintings for sale.  I’ve got a format down for notecards.  I’ve ordered some high quality paper for prints also.  I hope to get these things on etsy by the end of the week.  I’ll let you know!
