Sowing, Growing and Sharing & A new watercolor...

It is planting time in Central Iowa and
the farmers are busy sowing seeds
in the fields surrounding my home.
The tulips are just beginning to bloom
bright vibrant colors, red, violet and yellow.
Thanks to the lady who lived here
before we bought our place.
You see, the truth is, I can paint flowers
but, I really really can not have grow them,
not a green thumb
on either hand.
That is unless I am painting with green....Smile!

If I leave the flowers be, they seem to grow.
If I tend  them, they go....never to grow again.
So I just let nature do its thing!!!
And I do mine...

This is the newest addition to my
Seeds & Petals Series
Seeds, Petals and Spring Tulips

This is a 5" x 7" matted original watercolor.
I will be selling it on ETSY

Another Stroke of the Brush...
 As I watch the farmers sowing their seeds,
It reminds me of my need to
sow Gods words into my
heart and soul daily.
We must make the time
to sow Gods words or
we can not grow
as Christians.

"The Lord your God, will bless you in all your harvest
and in all the work of your hands, and
your joy will be complete.
Deuteronomy 16:15

See as Christians we have work to do...
Sharing the Harvest.

Sow encouragement into a friend soul.
Help someone else grow in Gods Love.
Harvest and share the Love you
have found
Jesus Christ.
May your Blessing be many and your
harvest be bountiful.
Thanks for droping by!!! Have a great day!

Beautiful Deborah! I would love to be there in this picture. It looks so serene. I was raised in the country and now live in the city and man oh man, how I sure miss the country life.

Smiles to you today!

I've been fortunate as to have a good hand with flowers and nature. Everything that I sow, usually grows :-) and hence caring after my little garden boxes and pots has become a hobby. I suppose I have a green thumb, a term I became acquaited with not so long ago :-)) BUT I was not blessed with other qualities...there is something for everybody I suppose. It's part of God's plan for each of us.
Beautiful painting!! I especially love the sky in it. I have a thing for skies I've been noticing.
Have a lovely day!
