front yard flowers

Besides doing lettering, I also love photography. Here's some flowers I found in my front yard this morning. The blue one is something new and exotic I just planted. The daisies grow in my yard like weeds, but at least they are cheerful!

I don't always get myself motivated to "do" art, so I love it when friends ask me to design things for them. A good friend of mine and former pastor has asked me to design a bulletin cover for his commissioning service at his new church. The theme is from Matthew 9, where Jesus says the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. I worked on it for awhile this afternoon and I think it's going to look good. I'll post pictures in a day or two.

I'm also working on a new business card for myself that will have the url for this blog. Again, I'll post pictures when I get something that I like!

My latest piece is one I did as a going-away gift for the same pastor I mentioned above. It's based on the hymn "My Hope is Built". I used a technique I just learned using a walnut ink wash.
