Day 15: Create In Me A Clean Heart

CleanHeart

This is one of my favorite paintings which is why I also chose it as the background to my series button!  I edited this particular image to enhance the fire around the heart.

This painting represents a heart on fire, overcome by God’s love and bursting with life.  I want to remain this way and so my heart’s cry is for Him to make my heart clean before Him. Only God can take my heart and make it new, an acceptable offering to be used for His glory.

*This painting was done entirely with my hands.

    Barbie, I catching up on my blog reading. Your paintings are amazing! How big are they? Do you sell prints? The scripture passage goes so beautifully with the painting. You are obviously very talented!

      Hi Mary! Most of the paintings are on 18×20 canvas. I would like to sell them, but trying to figure out if I should just have a “store” tab on my blog and sell through PayPal. I did have a Etsy store early on, but that never got off the ground.

      I am offering FREE ones during October. Go to both of my Weekend Brew posts and you will find them if you want them!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Love this one Barbie!! It’s beautiful and so is the message. You should consider cards too along with canvas art. A tab above is worth a try.

    Wow! You paint with actual paint, too, not just with your words? You are so talented! I long for a clean heart, too. Sometimes mine isn’t so spotless.

    I keep looking at each of your paintings and saying this one is my favorite. I love them all. But I do think this is the one I love the most so far. It’s been the scripture on my heart lately too. May God create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. That is work that only the Heavenly Father can do!

      Thank you Amanda. I am overwhelmed at the response that I am receiving regarding my art. I’ve been doing this for five years and just now getting it out there. I do not have a shop, yet. But, if you let me know what size you want, I can let you know how much and you can pay me through PayPal. Some of the prints were not taken with a quality camera so I will make sure quality for size of print is top notch before sending. You let me know!

      I hope to open a shop after the first of the year. I’d do it now, but am finalizing my first ebook, due to come out early December! 🙂
