What brought you here?


Perhaps you're checking out my website because you saw a cute pet portrait I painted and you are looking to get one painted of your furry loved one (or to get one painted for someone you love). I hope that you DO contact me and commission me to paint one!


But beyond the furry portraits and colorful koi art, maybe there is another reason why you and I are connected right now. I believe that in every relationship we have, it is for a reason. Whether we chat with the checker at the market for a minute, the neighbor walking their dog or the Costco gas guy just standing there....

So here's your take away from my site today. I had heard it a hundred times before I understood it.  And this just may be your 101st time:


For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

                             John 3:16


May God be real to you today and that you can find Him in the the world around you. Even through our darkest hours, He is near to you. 


Let me know how God is working in your life. We are in each other's lives to be an encouragement.
