Hi, I'm Marjorie who loves life to the full and married to a lovely, handsome Yorkshire man and enjoys everyday life.
I thank God for the gift he gave me, for family and friends who encouraged me in my new found hidden talent. Accidentally discovered this hidden talent during lockdown of 2020. It was a blessing in disguise. I started painting cards for friends and family. Next thing I started to paint on canvas. Small size to start with. Although, a beginner and there is so much to learn.
I loved acrylic paints as they are quick to dry and I like to see quick results. I do like oils but haven't painted much with oils as compared to acrylics.
I paint when I'm inspired. I listen to worship songs and then take the brush and begin to paint. Every time I start to paint, I don't have the full picture but once I start to paint before I know it, I'm completely submerge until it's completed. No wonder my loving husband would bring me drinks or fruits to keep me going till the project is done. I'm learning to take breaks and reflect, thanking God as I paint. I have to admit since I found this gift I enjoy every moment of it.
It is a joy to paint and I enjoy this God given talent and to be able to share it with others just brings a smile on my face. God created us to outreach and not in reach. If my humble paintings brings joy and a smile to one person I am eternally thankful to God.
The verses that keeps me going: " Do not get tired in doing good for in due season you will be rewarded." - Galatians 6:9
"But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded!” II Chronicles 15:7
