On the Easel...
These projects are currently in the process of being completed. Sometimes images go from preliminary sketches to completed paintings/drawings in a short amount of time. Usually an image will resonate in my mind, linger through my prayer for months at a time before it actually becomes anything more than just a few sketchy details. Many times I will sketch an image and stow it away for years before taking it further towards completion. Development of a final image must go through a process in which I often push myself to "just move the pencil." Then it enters a phase where the proper medium is determined and from there the final artwork is created. It is common for an image to take up to a year to go from development to completion. As always, prayer is an integral part of the entire process.
Sketches and more sketches...
Always keep the little sketches which are drawn during prayer. These are part of the journey which may develop into something more. If not, they are memories of a conversation with God.
