When Jane emailed me about participating in her “Year of Portrait Painting”, I was intrigued. But when I saw the tag line, “…with a gentle focus on Slow Living” - I was sold. I believe that the best progress is gentle and slow.
I believe that, in spite of the fact that when I first picked up a paintbrush, only about 7 years ago, I truly believe “the spirit of the Lord came upon me and the glory of the Lord overshadowed me”. (I’m only a little bit tongue-in-cheek, there) Progress was leaps and bounds and quick and involved hours and hours a day of hard work. It did not feel like work, though, because the healing I was also experiencing was so deep and so good.
July is my month to participate. I will be sharing a portrait painting “how to”, and I will be sharing my thoughts on what it means to be an embodied woman “in the middle”, and how that relates to gentleness. I happen to believe that an understanding of the gentleness of God is the most powerful thing you can have, once you are about age 35 and older. Really knowing this aspect of the character and nature of God will empower you to make genuine progress in places you may have felt stuck.
I want to gift YOU with a spot in this year-long course. You can find out more about it here.
I will draw a winner at random on or about June 30th. To be entered to win, click here with your best email address (this is the email to which all your course material will be sent).
Thank you, Jane, for inviting me to be a part of such a good thing!
