More artwork...

I am in the midst of completing sixteen commissioned pieces before Christmas (and counting... as it seems right now I am receiving a new request every other day). This has been and will continue to be a busy season for me. But, it is such a blessing to get to do this and know there will be people opening gifts containing my artwork on Christmas Day. Above is a drawing I did not too long ago for a dear friend. It is really incredible how the Lord has blessed me in my artwork business this fall and winter. It really affirms that I am doing the right thing. In THIS POST just over a year ago I was really questioning whether it was the right thing to continue with it. Some of you gave me some treasured words of wisdom. At this point, I am trusting that I am following the path He wants for me.

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen." - Ephesians 3:20-21


  1. Hello Christi and thank you for sharing another wonderful drawing. God has certainly blessed you with such talent and to have affirmation that you are following the right path, is wonderful. I've had those moments with my own artwork, many times, and still do.

    Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes...raising a cup of Ceylon to you this cold Sunday morning...

  2. Hi Christi, I hope that you are having a blessed day on this Sunday after Thanksgiving.

    I have said it before and I will say it again, your artwork is fantastic! Anyone receiving a piece like this one will be so happy and blessed.You definitely capture the total look of a residence.

    I am so glad that even though we are living in a fallen economy, your artwork is selling well. That speaks volumes about God and how He can cause us to abound in our work when it pleases Him. To God be the glory! I am so thankful for you.

  3. Hi Christi, I hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family. Can you believe the season is here already??? I simply cannot believe it LOL.

  10. Hi Christi,
    Thanks for stopping by with your words of encouragement. It looks like you have had such a productive year.

    Continued blessings on the work of your hands, and the inspiration of your heart.

    I have some work ahead of me too, but more along the Christmas gift kind, aprons and blankets.

    I was wondering what do you listen to when you work?

  11. Christi, your art is beautiful and is a lovely expression of the God-given talent within you. When we are doing what God has called us to do, it makes a difference in the lives of others, and I'm certain that many lives have been touched through your art. Have a wonderful Christmas filled with God's blessings. Thank you for visiting my blog last week.
