Crocus, despite cold weather...

Early Spring Sunshine

Despite the cold, grey, windy, snowy or rainy days, when the sun finally broke through a few days ago, out came these brave and cheerful flowers! All of us enjoyed those hours of sun!

"...Beginning...", a book of verses from Genesis 1

Years ago I began a small sketchbook of images made with watercolor on Pen & Ink, of favorite verses from the Old Testament. I have selected at least one verse from each of the books of the Old Testament. Some books like Genesis, Isaiah, Psalms and Proverbs have many more. I have made it through Genesis and Exodus... with several more pages blocked out and verses selected. I liked the finished pages from Genesis Chapter One well enough to copy them and make a small book. This week I bound the book! Here are some of the verses and my interpretation in paintings. The words are from Genesis, Chapter One, verses 1 (above), 3, 6, 9, and 11.

This is the second, and last set from my little book, "...Beginning...". They are visual interpretations from Genesis, chapter 1, from verses 14, 20, 24, and 26, and Genesis 2:9.
