New painting,  "Family Farm", a painting measuring 20 x 16.  This painting is of a  farm  in Lunenburg County, Virginia where the owners live and raise black angus cows. The owner walks through the green field scattered with buttercups to check on the cattle while  the three grand children greet and feed the farm's miniature horse, an apple. The three pet dogs lay waiting for another ride in the back of the family farm's old Ford pickup truck. My passion is in country living so this was a fun painting to paint. 





Here we are already, The Morning AFTER Christmas. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, a time for joy, sharing, and love, a spirit of Christmas. If only we could keep that attitude all year. What would it look like?


The Spirit of Christmas is a true worship that comes deep from within us. It is a revolution of our mind that should be a habit that is not just at Christmas. Our status or everyday life's situation should not affect our worship, it is a constant attitude. We have an unchanging presents of God in our life, that is not about us who are often full of pride but humbling ourselves to give God, who saves us all, the praise. And what he did for some he will do for all that put their faith in him!!!

 

Let's focus and rejoice our God that loves us, he came as a baby, who's name is Jesus to live among us, and his spirit is with us. He saved and continues to save us and is always faithful, a reason to worship and adore, giving all glory and praise throughout the year!! Let's sing praise as Mary taught us with her Song of Praise.

 

Mary’s Song of Praise
 And Mary said,
‘My soul magnifies the Lord, 
   and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, 
for he has looked with favour on the lowliness of his servant.
   Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed; 
for the Mighty One has done great things for me,
   and holy is his name. 
His mercy is for those who fear him
   from generation to generation. 
He has shown strength with his arm;
   he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts. 
He has brought down the powerful from their thrones,
   and lifted up the lowly; 
he has filled the hungry with good things,
   and sent the rich away empty. 
He has helped his servant Israel,
   in remembrance of his mercy, 
according to the promise he made to our ancestors,
   to Abraham and to his descendants for ever.’
Luke 1: 46 - 55


 

On the James, by Linda W Clark, is an oil painting on cotton canvas measuring 12" by 24".  The painting was completed in Julyof 2016, with Giclee prints available shortly after completion.

 

 You may recognize this beautiful arched stone and concrete railway bridge while driving across the Powhite Bridge in Richmond, Virginia.  Robbie Batt, a local photographer who shares my passion for preserving Southside Virginia structures and country scenes, captured this bridge, and when I saw his awesome photograph, I knew right away I wanted to capture it in a painting.

 

The double track bridge was built in 1919 and crosses the James River, drawing a lot of attention with its design and setting.  In my painting of it, which I entitled On The James, I depict a kayaker because so many people enjoy kayaking on the James River.
