Sketch for Wolf Hunt

Unsure of size but think it will be 22 x 28 inches and it will be oil.
This is for my show at Mirada this summer.

It Will Rise...

Yesterday I received a care package from my 'sister', prayer partner, and fellow artist, Debbie Grayson Lincoln.  We shared high school together and over fifty times together..but lost track in between. I love having her back in my life.  Things are always on the up with a united front. ( I just checked out her blog and she has a video of one of her chickens with 8 eggs under it.)

When she found out Terry and I were ill, she ground up some fresh flour from red wheat grain for us and slipped it into a box with her best recipe for fresh wheat bread.

I read over the recipe and it looks fool proof...that is IF the yeast will rise.  I do have two packages of fresh yeast here.  BUT in the recipe she mentions GLUTEN which I stay far away from... and GLUTEN is not listed in the ingredients so I am confused and will have to check in my her before beginning my own version of her specialty bread.

I am really good at homemade cinnamon rolls and rising yeast...but the last three loaves of bread I attempted in my bread machine were NOT eatable.  I blame it on the new bread machine we bought last year. The old one turned out yummie breads non-stop.  SO it will be back to the basics by hand...will it rise?

Coming just off of Easter the celebration of the Risen Lord, I must have faith that it will rise. God has a way with things that beauty always rises above all us. Not beauty in what you might define as superficial, but beauty as in the inner parts of each of us. When we allow the everyday 'ugly' to keep us down, beauty has a hard time rising above it...but turn your eyes and heart to Him and beauty rise.


  “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” - 1 John 5:14-15 

(I hope that includes rising wheat bread...)
