How I Got Started Painting

The creek restoration on our property, Four Gates to Heaven, in Oregon stirred something deep within me. I was torn between changing our beautiful creek view by adding downed trees to the creek with the great need to create a spawning place for the native Redband Trout. After lots of prayers, The Holy Spirit spoke to me – we are here to take care of His creation. From that point on I was no longer torn. I experienced a calmness along with an intense desire to create. A Redband Trout painted on a wooden plank that came from a tree from the property was the end result. That intense desire to create continues. Please peek into my gallery.
