My Bible Illustrations

Moses and the Burning Bush

I made these illustrations for a children’s picture Bible which has yet to be published.  Many other artists also made illustrations for it.  I hope one day it will be completed, but in the meantime, here are two of the illustrations I did.

First Recital

We have been to a number of our granddaughter’s ballet recitals and we always enjoy them.  The youngest dancers are adorable and really tug at the audience’s heartstrings.

First Recital

Duckling ballerina









Bewildered yellow ducklings

toddling in a row,

are staying close together

not sure where to go.

Teacher stands on tiptoes

watched by widened eyes

as obediently they follow

in their duck disguise.

Bobbing and turning,

arms held  ballet style,

they trail after their instructor

close in single file.

One has stopped to stare

beyond the spotlight sun.

Mom and dad are spellbound,

will their ducking run?

But  it’s time to curtsey;

it’s time to take their bow,

shaking tulled tail feathers

at the audience now.

One behind the other

they skip out of sight,

blowing tiny kisses

to the audience’s delight.

Pansies This Time

I belong to a website called “Paint My Photo” where very generous photographers provide examples of their work for others to use for drawing or painting.  Here is an oil pastel I did today from a gorgeous photo by S. Belle-Isle.

I wish I could get the rich deep purples of the pansies.  God  is the best artist.
