Pedaling in Flames!

My passion for cycling drives me to not only ride my bike, but also to create designs from this sport.

This colored pencil drawing was done from a photograph of, you guessed it me!

I took away all images of the bike and just left the rider in an aerodynamic position, adding flames flowing out to the rear to emphasize the speed and power!

Painted Pony - Living Free

A colored pencil drawing of a horse as it prances along the fence line.

Is he inside or outside the fence?

Are you living inside the fence or outside?

Colorful Images of Fall

Fall holds a beauty of its own,
The colors of life spring forth,
One last glorious display,
Before the sleep of winter.

How do you know that ...

How do you know that the wind rustling the leaves on a tree is not really an angel flying by?

How do you know that the voice in your head is not really a whisper from God?

How do you know that the feeling in the pit of your stomach is not a nudge from the Holy Spirit?

How do you know that the smile of a stranger is not Jesus?

How do you know that the rain is not God's tears of love on a cruel world?

How do you know that the physical death is the end of life?

Who is looking at you?

A moose peeking through the trees, reminds us that there are those in our lives who are always looking at us as well as strangers we will never meet.

We are examples to our children, our spouses, family, friends and every one whose paths we cross. What would those who are watching say about you?

Remember, character is revealed by what you do when you think no one is looking!
