His gift to me

Here are a few pics of my most recent paintings. I always tend to go towards things in nature such as trees, palms, birds, sunlight, etc. The SC state capitol painting was a huge challenge and very frustrating because I wasn't free to paint the flowing trees or reflecting lights; the lines had to be precise.
I'm not going to get real deep and go on and on about how I was feeling when I painted. I read artists' statements sometimes and they just sound so ridiculous. I will say though that my best paintings have come from times when I listened to worship music while I painted. I know that God has given me a gift, and it is so cool to worhsip and be thankful while I use that gift!
