"Colorful Glebe Street - Charleston" SOLD

SOLD 10"x8" Oil on Linen mounted on gatorfoam

What a glorious day to be outside painting! It is difficult to believe that we are still in February. It looks and feels more like springtime in March! I was standing in front of the College of Charleston's President's house when I painted this.

P.S. As I ended my time painting and was placing my equipment and painting bag in the back of my SUV, I neglected to close the back door adequately. As I pulled away and headed home, I noticed two blocks later that my back door was swinging open. I pulled over to close it tightly but while I was about to close it, I noticed that my painting bag was missing! My Painting Life was GONE and had fallen out of my car! Looking around in hopes of spotting it, I began to panic! A bicycle Policeman was near so I engaged his help but he returned with negative news. I literally cried out to God for help and in the midst of my prayer my cell phone rang. Someone had picked it up, found one of my business cards inside and placed it in the helpful hands of the Security Department of the College of Charleston! Dapper Joseph, who works at the Security Department and called to notify me that it was found, brought it out to me. I couldn't thank him enough! Joseph was too humble to take any credit and gave kudos to the one who found the bag and sent it to him. All of this was resolved in under 30 minutes!!! Thank You, Jesus, that You hear prayers!

So whoever you are (my sweet angel of mercy), if you are reading this right now, know that I have prayed for you and asked God to emphatically BLESS you beyond belief! I specifically asked Him to make your blessing be so obvious that you couldn't credit "good karma" for your good deed, but that you would receive such incredible blessings and joy and good fortune that you would KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Lord is GOOD and He's good to YOU because I asked Him to thank you out of HIS abundant Goodness for being such a merciful angel to me! This is what I prayed for you, check it out: Luke 6:38

"Give, and [gifts] will be given to you; good measure, pressed down shaken together, and running over, will they pour into [the pouch formed by] the bosom [of your robe and used as a bag]. For with the measure you deal out [with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others], it will be measured back to you."

thank you so much!!!!
