Several years ago we were involved in travel to southern Africa. This is a painting from one of those visits. Early morning was so peaceful and I was stunned as the morning sun slipped up and behind the hill near our residence. To purchase a copy: http://www.lacountanderson.com (mixed media gallary).
From our recent visit to Cuba. You can view in my gallery and purchase: www.lacountanderson.com
We had opportunity to visit Dallas Texas this week. A part of that visit was a day trip to Waco and we visited Magnolia Market the home of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. While there I ran across this cool vehicle.
Last month my wife and I had the opportunity to visit the country of Cuba with colleagues from the NC Baptist Singers and Orchestra. We enjoyed our time with the lovely people who made us feel as if we were “rock stars.” A beautiful country of mountains and sea; nothing like I anticipated. Thanks to interpreters we were able to communicate, enjoy home cooked food, and make friends with the kind people of Cuba.
One evening at Sunset a large thunder storm moved into the area. This is from a roof top viewing the beautiful sky as the storm arrived.
One day we visited a retirement home for Christian workers. This is the lovely chapel at the retirement home near Santiago City.
I saw this guy enjoying lunch on the side of the road.
In March I created this watercolor of the handbells I have the privilege to ring. If you are a musician or know a musician this is a wonderful opportunity to have this print. If you desire to frame and or mat we are able to provide this to you too. Go to www.lacountanderson.com and choose from the gallery.
Yesterday was a beautiful day and we found ourselves in one of our favorite cities, Raleigh, NC. It is home to us in that we, for the past 13 years, have lived just north about 90 miles from the Capital City. We were introduced to a quaint little shop located near the downtown area of the city. We find ourselves returning often when we visit Raleigh. The Flourish Market, located at 713 Tucker St. is a boutique for ladies accessories and fashion, but it is so much more. When you enter the store you are greeted by a sincere and warm greeting usually accompanied by a hug and an offer of something to drink while you shop. ( I do like their apple cider). In addition to the love spread about to customers, there is also love spread about the world through the activity of The Flourish Market. The boutique partners with 40 brands that work all over the world, providing dignified jobs and fair wages to inspiring artisans and makers in vulnerable communities. Most of these artisans are women. When you purchase something at The Flourish Market you are partnering to help women from across the world provide for their families as they make the clothing and accessories found in this quaint store. Now, isn’t that a great idea? I hope you will find your way to Tucker street and see for yourself creativity that abounds in helping others.
I was inspired to make this water color sketch for my #momentsketchers group this weekend. I hope you enjoy it. You can view my paintings and drawings at my gallery : www.lacountanderson.com and I would be honored if you would be inspired to make a purchase.
Saturday afternoon shopping at The Flourish Market
“Give Me Jesus” is a negro Spiritual that I have been thinking about lately. We had participated in a lecture series a few weeks ago at our church, and the speaker used the Spiritual as a part of his presentation to us. We are now challenged by our pastor to think about the Spiritual with fresh eyes and allow the words this Lenten season to enter our hearts anew; readying ourselves for Easter.
As we enter this season I thought it important to my spiritual development to look at the text of this great song. My drawing , inserted below, is from my reflection of the words of “Give Me Jesus.”
Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus.
