Another art post (ARcTic post) that I’d like to share-

I want to offer ARcTic posts as a way to promote talented emerging and established artists and to share God’s word visually through art. The art that I will feature may or may not have been created from a Christian-minded artist. I want to share it here; to appreciate the work created as well as the talent that the artist demonstrates, always from a Christian perspective.

Linda offers inspiration from her creative use of prismacolor pencils. I received her 5×7  Nautical design of Deuteronomy 31:6. This drawing goes perfect with my beach decor and it provides me with the reminder that God is always with me.

Her scripture drawings are more than a verse accompanying a drawing.  Linda seamlessly works the verse “into” the drawing like putting faith into action. Her drawings are a beautiful way to illustrate biblical truths and is a joy to see as I go about my day, keeping what’s important on my mind and sharing with those who visit my home.

About Linda

My Scripture Art Designs are all inspired by God. He is the one that opened my eyes to realize that sharing our faith with others does not only have to be through our verbal words but it can be through written words and our artistic expression! What an amazing realization! 

I have enjoyed drawing as long as I can remember. It was in High School that I discovered Pen and Ink and realized I had a talent for art. After receiving a degree in Graphic Design and awards for several design pieces, I worked as a freelance Graphic Artist and an Ad Designer. I discovered the versatility of Prismacolor pencils and began drawing people, pets and wildlife. My life changed when I became a baptized Christian. It was then that I decided to use the talent God gave me to glorify Him. My goal now is to pass on God’s word through my Art.

I’d like to thank artist Linda Robb for her participation and for the beautiful nautical scripture drawing she provided.

A TreeSmart Giveaway

JUST FOR YOU!

Last year I did a review for TreeSmart recycled newspaper pencils. I’ll love them forever! And I want to share that review again this fall along with a giveaway for the Start Now Set ( 24 rolled up recycled newspaper pencils) and the Mini Color Pencils in Tube (12 colored newspaper pencils).

The review:

TreeSmart makes pencils from recycled newspapers. What a smart idea! Take a look at the TreeSmart process.

Made in the United States,  TreeSmart pencils keep tons of newspapers out of the landfill and minimizes the cutting of trees.

TreeSmart sent me some to try. They are wonderful!

They are so unique in look and feel. The pencil is rounded with a smooth barrel on which the newsprint is clearly visible. It sharpens easily, actually better than most regular pencils. The no. 2 graphite writes smooth and the eraser is latex-free and smudge proof.

The  mini colored pencils were comparable to other wood-made colored pencils. The set contains 12 colors. The lighter purple color wasn’t purple but more of a flesh tone color and very close to the brown shade.  Also, the two blues are very close to being the same shade. They sharpened nice and the graphite stayed strong during coloring.


I am truly wowed by these TreeSmart pencils! Why would I need a pencil made from a tree again?

Save a tree! Reuse a newspaper!
