Edge of EternityEdge of Eternity~ Novella by Shiree Walker

      I don’t normally review books but this was one that I had read recently and thought that I would share. This novella only cost$0.99 and was well worth the read! Shiree Walker is a good writer and kept me completely captivated! The story was written in present tense, so you feel like you are Emily going on the journey to find salvation. I couldn’t stop thinking about this book days after I read it! If you’re a fan of Pilgrim’s Progress like me,  you’ll want to read, Edge of Eternity. This book can be found on Amazon.com.                                   

Book Synopsis:

         Inspired by The Pilgrim’s Progress, this modern take features a young woman, Emily Watson, who only expected to enjoy another carefree summer day before college. She had no idea it would be the last day of her life… A freak accident leaves her trapped in a dream world where she encounters her guardian angel. He sends her on a quest to find the answers she needs to save her soul from eternal punishment at the hands of Justice, the dark creature that pursues her. Her quest takes her through wolf infested woods, over an active volcano, and forces her to relive the sins of her past. Can she find the answers she needs, or is it already too late?

A Woman that Fears the Lord, She Shall be Praised

Pro_31:30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

I painted this yesterday as a graduation card for my friend. She’s a good girl and I’m proud of her. Praying that God will continue to direct her path and help her to know what is his will for her.  I tried to make this damsel in my painting look similar to my friend. It was fun to try and find the right paints to match her hair color.

I painted this card for my Dad for Father’s Day. We love Horny toads, they’re so cute! One of the things I love about them, is their fat bellies and stubby tails. :)

I made this card for my little sis’s birthday. It was inspired by the verse, Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Pro 31:30. 

I enjoyed making this card for her. I would like to do a larger version that is more detailed sometime. :)

Chipmunk in Blackberry Bush~ Watercolor Painting

Available as a Fine Art Print

I’m now finished with my painting! Soon I’ll need to frame it and get it ready for the Art Show next month. Hopefully I can get my deer painting finished in time as well. My new Sable brush, that I mentioned earlier, did a good job, although…it wasn’t the same size that I had before. I think perhaps I’ll order another in a smaller size some time. But other than that, it’s what finished my painting and I think it turned out well. :)

Finally Recieved My Sable Brush!

Waited almost a month for my Kolinsky Sable Brush to arrive. I just got it yesterday. I love these watercolor brushes! Now I can finish my Chipmunk painting! :D

I haven’t used it yet but it should be a good one! I’ll let you all know how well it works later. ;)
