His Wisdom & Understanding

This week we found out one of my cousins is in the hospital and things don't look good.  He's been struggling with illness for many, many years but he's still very young.  I can't remember the last time I saw my cousin, Joey, but it still weighs heavy on my heart.  I do remember all our visits at my aunt and uncle's home and also when all the cousins got together at my grandparents for the holidays.  He has an amazing artistic talent and would draw all the time.  Maybe he was a little on the rough side of things, but always fun to be around!  Many, many prayers to my aunt and my cousins.

When I called my cousin, his sister, she mentioned that not more than a month ago, Joey met with her pastor and he had positive things to say about him.  Talk about God's perfect timing.  Joey is now in ICU with machines hooked up to him and sleeping but I bet God's talking to him now giving him the peace he needs to let go.

The bible study at Triple the Scraps is about WISDOM.  I thought this is so perfect for the situation.  Proverbs 3:13 spoke to me so I created a piece in my art journal with this verse.

This page started completely different as I added book page, ink, paint, etc, but after speaking to my cousin, I decided to paint over everything with black acrylic paint.  As you can see lots of the ink came up from the paint after I added white texture paste on it.  It's messy and I love it!  After splatering some yellow paint, I used a white marker to draw some circles.  The only other thing I did was add the verse.  This page is dedicated to him.
