Cutesy

hi guys!
this is a quick sketch i did today... its been to long since iv posted a drawing...
i stumbled upon this pic and could not resist trying my hand at drawing it...anything i find beautiful or cute or awesome i Have to recreate. Not sure why, but thats how it is...
wish i knew who the original artist was cause i have a feeling id like other art pieces of theirs...
anyway i wish i was posting more regularly but lately iv been inspired to paint. And paintings always take much longer than drawings...I'm working on two paintings right now so hopefully il finish them soon!

Love

Today i was once again shown Jesus' huge unimaginable love...
Me, my sisters and my friend went to an old invalid lady's house. This old lady is actually not that old, i later found out to my great amazement. She is around 45 to 50 but she looks like 80. She is slowly dying of cancer, spending all day and all night in her little bed, for years. She can't get out of her bed much less the house, all she can do is lay there. And the only person to help her is her husband who is unwell himself...and  who is often drunk.      
 We walked into the little house and i was hit with a overpowering stench. I gagged at the cloying smell of body waste, vodka, smoke and chickens. I prayed desperately that Id stop gagging so the couple wouldn't see and so i could sing. God answered that prayer quickly(thank you Jesus) and i was able to ignore the smell and say 'Good Day' to Luba(that's the lady's name). We all grouped around the tiny,shriveled, white haired lady and i could see she was not getting the care she should be, not even close. When we started to sing she burst into tears and hid her face beneath the ragged blanket.As our voices filled the room Jesus gave me a glimpse of how much He loved this little forgotten dying lady. Tears pricked the backs of my eyelids as i saw her through His eyes and felt His sorrow knowing she didn't belong to him.
  After the songs my friend sat down to talk to her. I couldn't understand everything she said since im not very advanced in Ukrainian but i got the drift that she was telling her about God's grace and how Jesus loved her so much he died for her. And if she wanted to be His all she had to do was pray that He forgive her sins. My tears spilled over as Luba prayed and became one of His own. I saw peace flood her watery blue eyes and i smiled through my tears. She asked for another song so we sang one more and then left with the promise to come again.
 It made me feel so small to be part of something so big. The experience left me humbled. It is my prayer that i can be the hands and feet for Jesus.

p.s. As you can see i didnt post a piece of art...i havent had time lately to create anything...although i am working on two paintings, they are not near done yet...so yep no artwork for this post i guess...hope that's okay.. peace<3

reading...

To read is to fly: it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience and the fruits of many inquiries

hi people :)
i enjoy reading immensely! how about you? Its a delightful chance to travel to other places, to be lead through magical experiences and see the world through someone else's eyes...

btw i drew this picture for school.... a quick sketch...

peace out<3

Happiness



hey everybody! here is a painting that i worked on for about a year!i now know it even better than i know the back of my hand(much much better in fact!...where did that saying come from anyway?obviously from someone who was obsessed with staring at the backs of their hands..?*giggle*)
Yeah..it took forever!SO glad to have it done!! it was actually very sporadically worked on...didnt work on it for 3 months in the middle when i was in ukraine...as you may guess its sorta hard to work on a painting that is hundreds of miles away...heh heh..
My bro david http://binarysoda.blogspot.com/ drew it(cheers dave!) and i did the painting of it...
Um it was way to big(around 3ft by 2ft..?) to scan so i just took a picture...it doesn't show the colours very well(i promise they look better in real life) and i apologize for the blurriness...
we plan on selling it if i can find a gallery(or whatever) to display it... That will be a new thing indeed!...selling artwork...but yeah we'll "give it a go" :)  And maybe if it works i can sell more stuff...maybe...only then id have to be alot less sloppy and stuff...hmm novel idea!:D

p.s. in the meantime while i look for a place to sell the painting, it is displayed here and for sale to anyone who wants it...
Acrylic on canvas
About 61cm by 91cm
Price $400

Colourful

heey guys! its finally time for another post! its only been waaaay to long!
 So anyway this is a painting i did for school(imagine that!*shocked voice*)...it is quite different looking in real life..the scanner sadly can't transfer the colours as nicely as hoped(the yellow and green parts dont show well at all..sigh)..And this painting is quite large,about 1.5 ft by 2 feet...or something like that..
 This assignment had lotsa rules. i had to divide the face into quarters and then paint each quarter with a different colour scheme and tool(i could NOT use any brushes)...so i painted one section with a Q-tip(yay for those handy things!), one with my finger(also a handy thing *no pun intended* snort!), one with a sponge(bleh it was terrible unhandy!), and one was done with fabric ...and you know this is the first face iv ever painted! they sure made it hard enough *grimace* lol
it was fun though! maybe i will paint more faces this style! you just never know...

k peace <3

Self-portait

While we sing

yet another picture made for school...i was surprised that colouring with pencil crayons actually worked as well as it did...i had many doubts! i just like using paints better but yeah anyway it was okay:)
anyway here are some lyrics for a song that was a huge inspiration for me lately!




  • I’ve sat by far too long
  • And I’ve watched the hurting suffer on their own
  • I have chances everyday
  • To live like You, die to myself
  • Give Your love away
  • And I wonder why I feel so empty inside
  • (chorus)While I sing la la la la la la la la la
  • As the hungry roam the streets
  • La la la la la la la la la
  • As the broken are on their knees
  • La la la la la la la la la
  • I keep singing
  • We are frozen, we are still
  • But we’re called to be a city on a hill
  • And as our melodies resound
  • We cannot hear the silent cry
  • This world is screaming out
  • And we wonder why we feel so empty inside
  • (to chorus)
  • Remember salvation’s day
  • When Jesus washed our sins away
  • The lost are crying out to be saved
  • While we sing la la la la la la la la la
  • As the hungry roam the streets
  • La la la la la la la la la
  • As the broken are on their knees
  • La la la la la la la la la
  • We keep singing
  • But just a song won't heal
  • The bleeding wound
  • Church wake up
  • We’re sleeping in an empty tomb
  • Church arise, arise and shine
  • Shake yourself from the dust
  • God is calling us to go

  • When i heard this song it hit me hard that while people are crying out for help i sit in my happy little life and sing...yes they may be songs of praise to God ,which is all good, but he is calling me to help his lost lambs.And just a song won't heal. How can i just sit and sing while the hungry roam the streets,wounded and bleeding, yearning for something more!How can i sit in my little comfortable circle and do nothing...how can i not be screaming it out for the world to hear that the Jesus i serve is the wonderful-est best-est friend ever and that he'll be their friend to! God has given me so much and i needa share it with everyone! i need to arise and go and tell them of His incredible love! So my resolve is to stop being so selfish, to give of myself,to follow His call wherever He leads as scary as it may be. And with this resolve comes a great peace and happiness! i can't wait to shake myself from the dust and go:) Thank you Jesus for your great love and patience!! 
  • btw you can hear this song down in the little doobleedo...widget..watever you call it..

    Colour

    this was one was done to illustrate colour...*whispers*"its a school project if you didn't already guess"

    Contrast

    this is the drawing i drew to show contrast...
    and here is something i read the other day that inspired me alot so i thought id share:)
    The real secret of success
    Most people spend their life working in a job they don't like, for a boss they don't respect, with people they don't get along with, to make money to buys stuff they don't even need. And if they endure this lifestyle long enough, we call them a success.
     Jesus called John the Baptist the greatest man to ever live. And what was his life philosophy? "He (Jesus) must become greater and greater, and i must become less and less" (John 3:30). He wanted to become less and less visible as Jesus took over more and more of his life. And Jesus called him the greatest man who ever lived.
    the world says...                                               
    "You need to find yourself"
    God says...
    "You're lost..I need to find you
    the world says...
    "Follow your heart!"
     God says...
     "Your heart is deceitful...follow me"
    the world says...
    "Love yourself!"
     God says...                                        
     "Hate your old self...love me instead."
    the world says...
    "Do what you want!"
     God says...                                 
    "Deny yourself...Do what I want"
    the world says...
    "Be all you can be!" 
    God says...                                 
    "Let me fill you...and be more than you can be"
    the world says...
    'Whoever dies with the most toys wins!'
    God says...  
    'Get your priorities straight.Whoever dies without me loses.'                     
    When God measures success, he doesn't ask, "How much have you earned?" He asks, "How faithful have you been?" Because you can never be a success unless Christ is at the center of your life. You will never be rich by clinging to the things of this world.
    "And how do benefit if you gain the whole world but lose you own soul?Is anything worth more than your soul?" (Matthew 16:26)
     The way to achieve true inner harmony and happiness isn't by earning a mountain of cash, or impressing hordes of fans or even seeing your name in lights. True harmony, happiness and peace come from knowing your sins are forgiven and that you are accepted by God, despite the mistakes and wrongs you've done in the past.
     Then you can move on to the following, serving and honoring the God you loves you by letting go of the things of this life and clinging to the hope of the life to come; by being faithful to him, putting him first and trusting him for eternal results.
     In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon explores the mysteries and meaning of life. He concludes that without God at the heart of the matter, life is meaningless. Four thoughts echo throughout the book:

    • Obey God, for this is the duty of every person
    • Enjoy life, even though it is brief and filled with uncertainty
    • Work hard, though it sometimes seems tiring and useless
    • Be content, because wealth will never bring happiness
    In God's eyes, a successful life is one of obedience, enjoyment, integrity and contentment. Build your life on those four pillars and, even though no one else may notice, God will call you a success.

    how to smell like God by Steven James 
    (btw i recommend the book "how to smell like God" to you all) 

    peace:)

    the star

    here is a abstact sketch...

    Moments filled with memories
    She stoops to fix her shoe
    Her heart races quickly
    Her dress rehearsal due

    Stage is like an ocean
    Where crystals seem to shine
    Beckons her to dance upon
    Reflections of life's time

    Suddenly she rises
    She sees the magic there
    Running in a gust of wind
    She dances with great flair

    Movement of a willow
    So gracious as she sways
    Gentle sounds if orchestra
    Each step her grand ballet

    Destiny is born now
    Her graceful moves divine
    Pirouttes across the stage
    Her shadow now aligns

    Dancer if life begins now
    Her music special score
    Bowing for the audience
    She hears the words encore.

    human city


    there once was an owl named Larry and because he had insomia he wrote music during the day when all the other owls were sleeping...he named his music/band Human City. His music was beautiful and relaxing, full of magical happiness. He became famous for his music and he was a content owl:)  his music and writings were inspiring, telling of his love for his creator. All the other owls loved how humble he was and how he used his fame to bring glory to Jesus...they all said God bless that owl Larry :D

    Hi guys:) i drew and coloured this picture and wrote this small story in tribute to Adam Young. He is an big inspiration to me:) and like him may i always keep my eyes on my Savior,Jesus Christ, whatever may happen in my life.

    strawberry in disguise

    random quote on the word 'unsavoury'
    The practice of calling bad persons 'unsavoury' dates back to London of the Middle Ages, when convicted criminals were forced to walk around the streets dressed as not very delicious foods. Thieves dressed as brussel sprouts, dishonest businessmen dressed as cabbage sandwiches, and murderers were attired as very unappetizing meat pies. Sean Cullen
    that made me lol so thot i would share:D
    peace out everybody
    p.s. dont ask why the strawberry is in disguise...its a long story...snort
