Yesterday was Sunday, but I finished up this music painting and wanted to share it this morning. It is a commissioned painting and the buyer provided her favorite CD piano music for me to listen to and precious photos of her nephew playing the piano.  He is a very talented young man and it was an honor to paint this for his Aunt.    

I just got back the collector book for one family of the piece entitled  How Great Thou Art.
This is the cover.
 This is the title page...
 There are several pages of studio shots and then images of the progress of the painting. This is how I do the oil paintings as well. I take progressive shots of the work. From the birth of the painting, the sketches, through the drawings on canvas to the painting in steps until it is finished.
 More progressive steps...
 Bits and pieces... and again this is done with my oil paintings too.
 The Painting finished and titled.
 The back section of the book covers my shows.

Treasures in life are the memories that are made from the best moments we share.  Painting these are so important to me as I know how much they are loved by the families that write to me for them.  We carefully pick out the music and talk about the child and what type of look they are wanting. Also the type of piano and usually a photo comes with the piano they want represented in the painting.

What are some of the treasured moments in life for you and your family?  I was reminiscing about my memories on the piano from second grade on... I still play today and enjoy it so much.  My brother has the piano I loved and learned on at his house.  There were hours and hours of practice and love on that piano.  It was my best friend even after I got my guitar.  

God give us these 'treasured' memories to take us through the hard times in life.

I continue to pray for abundance and for good health for all of you.


"Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,"  Ephesians 5:19
