Photograph – Wisdom on Wednesday/The Son and the Sun

Hebrews 1:1-4 (NIV)

God’s Final Word: His Son

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.

Painting – Poppies/Update

I put in the sky with Aqua, a hint of foliage with Hauser Green and Warm White, and added some swirling brush strokes where I planned to put the sun.

Loved, loved, loved the look of the sun. I almost stopped and called the painting finished right here, but I wanted red poppies, so red poppies I must paint.

Here are the first strokes of red. I am not sure about all the shading I am trying to add. I have only dabbled around with acrylics in crafts and have never had any luck actually trying to paint a picture with them. This will be my first large painting. I am sure I have a lot to learn, but I am having FUN! Compared to watercolor painting it is like being on a roller coaster versus a merry-go-round. The pace is fast and furious and a bit breathless. I’ll post the finished painting tomorrow.
