Take time to enjoy what God has made and then say thank you.

It doesn't really matter which part of the world we live in, there is always something in nature to grab our attention and make us ponder the supernatural if we are willing to go there. 

Psalm 19 says this, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."

So the next time your bent on checking your email for the fiftieth time today on your wifi device -- don't. Sit down in a park, stroll through the woods or whatever works for you and focus on the beauty around you. Enjoy it and reflect on it. Then say thank you to God.

This is good for the soul.

Jack and the Beanstalk

Sometimes it's good to turn to the classics when you get a case of artist block. This is my take of the beanstalk tale.

Campfire Tails

This illustration is inspired by the familiar summer evening ritual of sitting around the campfire and telling your best story to anyone who would listen.

Jonah and the Whale

I love the book of Jonah. It demonstrates God's love for not only his chosen people but all people. When the Ninevites repented from their wicked ways, God was pleased and did not bring judgement upon them. 

Before this took place though,  we read the account of Jonah ending up inside the whale for three days. And before you dismiss this story as mere fiction, you have to go the words of Jesus Himself. 
"For as Jonah was for three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matt 12:40

If Jesus states it to be fact, you can be certain that it is. Jesus is God, and God cannot lie.

Thinking of Summer

I don't know what part of the world your from?, but here in Kingston, Ontario, Canada we have been enduring a very long, cold winter.

I don't know why I drew this illustration, but I suppose it comes from a longing for summer and getting into the outdoors again.

Chickadee Song - Full page spread

In my story "Chickadee Song", the chickadee character is observed flitting through the trees. This is how I interpreted the scene.
