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…
