A Quiet Day in the Country

A Quiet Day in the Country

 

This is a picture I drew for my parent’s Christmas present this past year.  As you can see it is a Winter day and there are millions of birds flying out of the tree.  The inspiration for drawing this came from just watching these amazing creatures in my own backyard. The birds fly in perfect coordination!  I knew that drawing this would make a perfect picture.  As with most pictures you must have a horizon object, the house, trees and water-tower serve as this object.  You also need an eye-stopper; the tree and tire-swing serve this purpose.  This picture took me around 4 hours to draw and was well worth the time!  Comment and tell me what you think about it…any suggestions?

Christmas is Here!

 

Merry Christmas to you all, from Life Drawn Out!  It has been a great year and I am looking forward to another great year to come.  I hope all of you are doing well!  Now that it is Christmas, I thought I would share what the true meaning of Christmas is.  2000 years ago, a little child was born into the earth, His name was Jesus.  Out in Bethlehem in a lonely manger lay the savior of the world!  God chose to send His Son in the form of a baby, who had to deal with all of the natural, physical circumstances we do.  God could have chosen to send His Son in the form of a mighty warrior, but no!  God sent His Son as a baby, who later humbled himself and carried a cross for our sins.

 

So what is Christmas about?  Not filling our shopping carts with toys from Wal-mart, not stuffing ourselves with food, but Christmas is a day to celebrate the birth of this humble baby!  This year we need to remember this.  It’s not like we cannot do the things listed above, but we do not need to emphasize them as the true meaning of Christmas.  Take a look at this: He Gave His Life So We Can Live!

 

And as promised……THE VEGGIE-TALES CHRISTMAS PICTURE!  These cute little characters have come from the Veggie-tales movie – St. Nicholas.  So drum-roll please…

Children All Over the World

I have recently drawn a picture for an art contest and decided to post it here. The picture is of children holding hands and standing on the Bible.  The contest was formed around Psalm 19; so on the Bible I wrote the beginning verses of Psalm 19.  All of the children in the below picture are of different cultures and they are all united.  This picture reminds me of an organization that my family and I are apart of; Compassion International.  Compassion Int. is an organization that helps children that are in poverty.  This ministry covers many countries and is changing the lives of many children and families in poverty around the world.

In fact, YOU CAN HELP TOO!  If you would like to sponsor a child just go to: http://www.compassion.com.   If you feel like you should sponsor a child, feel free to do so and know that it is leading kids to God’s Kingdom.  If you are not financially able to sponsor a child, there is an alternative; you can correspond with a child!  When you correspond with a child you do not have to pay anything, and you can write to a child and bring hope to their future.

This Is Your…

Art Photography

I decided I wanted to show you a couple of pictures my sister took of me drawing.  This is not exactly my drawings but I am drawing in the pictures! 🙂

The first one is me drawing at an easel.

The second one is of our backyard.  I have attempted to draw our backyard but never completed the picture.

This picture is just my sister practicing her photography.  I think it is pretty good!
