Can you say slacker??

Greetings all!! And first off, let me apologize for being such a bad blogger!! Things have been crazy around here since April!! Interior remodel, exterior remodel, blah blah blah.  But I'm back!!
And since I haven't posted any new work here in so long, this post will basically be stuff to look at!
But not before first giving God the glory for the amazing thing that is my life. Thank you Lord, your provision and grace is amazing and appreciated!!
So now, onto the stuff!!

And this is what I have been doing for the last 6 months!! Wow, that is a long time!! Anyway, I am very excited about attending "A Gathering of Artisans" at the end of the month.  It is a 4 day retreat to inspire and stir up the artistic gifts that God has given us, and to incorporate in in a setting of worship.  I am beyond thrilled.  It is for all artists: painters, music, drama, dance, film....all of them.  It is being held right outside of Asheville NC, (where I have never been) and I can't wait to see what God does!!!
And then at the end of October, it's back to Port Townsend WA for Journalfest.  Got to be my favorite!!! I can't wait!!! Taking two classes with Juliana Coles, and one with Lisa Cheney Jorgensen, (who I took last year and fell in love with her)  So happy!!
God is good, all the time!!!

Carrie;
It is nice to see some of your work again. Your art has so much passion and God's love in it! Thanks for sharing all of these today. I would absolutely love that retreat you are going to but I do not live anywhere nearby.:(
Hugs and blessings.

I love your new paintings. Girl you have a ton of talent! I sometimes wonder how I am going to get any work done on my house. I need to replace most of the flooring this year in the upstairs. I can't imagine where I will get the time to move everything. I am sure my blog will have to take a backseat too. Denise at: reinventedobjects.blogspot.com

I found you through a back issue of Art Journal and when I first visited it said there hadn't been a post in a few months and I thought maybe you weren't blogging anymore... I'm so glad you're back! I am also a Believer and your work is so inspiring; thank you for sharing it.
