Illustration Friday-Maria-Gesture



Welcome to our Art Blog. Maria was really happy with her drawing for Illustration Friday's word, gesture. She loves dogs and was happy to incorporate one into her piece. She named him Digger, and Digger is gesturing to the bird that he will bite it if it comes any closer. Check out them teeth!!!

Here is a picture of her with her huge stuffed dog. She uses her as a pillow.

God Bless You All,
Love Maria :)

Proverbs 12:10 NIV
"A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, 
but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel."

Illustration Friday-Maria-Stay


This was a bit of a stickler for Maria to come up with an idea for this weeks word. She knew what it meant, but her mind just couldn't put a visual to it. I usually don't like to help them come up with an idea so they can learn to draw from their own creativity, but she was stumped. I finally gave in and reminded her of how she had to stay in a room for most of the day when we went together on a Missions Trip to Bad Berneck, Germany for 3 weeks ago to help with some construction. She wasn't allowed in the construction area so she had to keep herself busy with drawing, and coloring, and taking pictures.

 She was well rewarded for her patience :)

 And it really wasn't that uncomfortable of a room ;)

 All and all, we had a blast helping a local church with renovations (, Maria got to learn patience, watch a lot of cartoons, visit some really cool places, and enjoy a 10 day Daddy/Daughter date.


God Bless You,

Psalm 37:9

"For the evildoers shall be cut off,
   but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land."
