Day 21 Your 30-Day Art Challenge & Day 50 A Block A Day Challenge

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, shoes
Prompt Day #21: Read a favorite passage of scripture 
and then re-write it in a way that’s personal to you.
 Psalm 18:19 & 20
"He brought me out into a spacious place;
he rescued me because he delighted in me.
The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness;
according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me."

When I was backed into a corner physically or emotionally,
 God brought me out and into an open place where I could move freely and feel free.
My Master covered me with His righteousness,
 His justice, Himself, saw my innocence in the situation
 and has gave me a reward.
A blue flower batik combined with a teal /brown
batik for today's block for my bed quilt backing.

Day 20 Your 30-Day Art Challenge & Day 49 A Block A Day Challenge

Prompt Day #20: Write a poem in response to one of your favorite pieces of art.
This is one of my favorite creations to date.
"...be healed"
Familiar design of previous healing art,
Spirit prompted again stitching start.
Healing the goal,
In quiet moments sewed, 
Beauty from ashes again.
Obedience allows the  balm to unfold 
Healing through art the goal. 
And then
Released to heal others in unique new space, 
To soothe and heal through grace
Today's block for the back of my  bed quilt features a multicolored batik
with a blue striped batik.

Day 18 Your 30-Day Art Challenge & Day 47 A Block A Day Challenge

Prompt Day #18: Create a piece of art in response 
to your favorite worship song.
Current favorite worship song is 
 Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin.
Gelli printed purple onto hand painted fabric with
a female silhouette mask with
arms upraised to the Good Good Father.
Hand stamped PRAISE overlay.
 Expressing what a Quilted Art piece means to you 
in a title doesn't always come easily. 
Inner Threshold's title came from the other challenge
 I'm participating in - Your 30-Day Art Challenge's 
challenge to create a poem on Day #15.
And although the lines in the clear stained glass door
downtown Asheville inspired this composition,
my surprise reflection in the door noticed later 
spoke to my soul as well.

Day 17 Your 30-Day Art Challenge & Day 46 A Block A Day Challenge

No automatic alt text available.
Prompt Day #17: Create a piece of art based on your
 favorite “inspiration piece” from another artist.
There is so much inspiring art around me, it's hard to choose. 
I have been especially drawn to collage on dictionary pages lately. 
Here's my watercolor female silhouette collage who
 DREAMS of JOYFUL LIBERTY. 
STRETCH is on the pattern tissue paper.
I'm making great progress on creating a backing for my
bed quilt by piecing large blocks from my batik fabric stash.
Today's block is a light purple floral with a dark purple foliage batik fabric.

Day 16 Your 30-Day Art Challenge & Day 45 A Block A Day Challenge

Prompt for Day #16: Create a piece of art to encourage
 a friend by asking the Holy Spirit to give you a picture, 
word or feeling for them then find a scripture to accompany it.
To a grieving friend, I sent a photo of this composition ( "Inner Threshold")
 and an explanation
of how Ezekiel 40:7 speaks of how even the alcoves are
measured and under the care of our Father.
I also sent a copy of my poem.
INNER THRESHOLD
Not all thresholds are pleasant entrances to cross,
Especially those involving loss.
Preferred thresholds appear exciting and fun,
With high hopes of new adventures to come.
Still life allows thresholds of all kinds, 
designed to strengthen soul and renew mind.
I trust the One who leads and remains through each threshold, 
Is refining my heart stronger and bold.
Today's block is made up of a bright lime batik
and a purple swirl batik fabric.

Day 15 Your 30-Day Art Challenge & Day 44 A Block A Day Challenge

 Prompt Day #15: Write a poem that expresses
 the essence of your spiritual journey over the last 12 months.
Interestingly, I created a couple pieces of art using a door as the theme, 
which is the focus of my poem today. 
INNER THRESHOLD
Not all thresholds are pleasant entrances to cross,
Especially those involving loss.
Preferred thresholds appear exciting and fun,
With high hopes of new adventures to come.
Still life allows thresholds of all kinds, 
designed to strengthen soul and renew mind.
I trust the One who leads and remains through each threshold, 
Is refining my heart stronger and bold.
Today's partial fat quarter batik block
combines a Spring like foliage with a dark blue 
and brown foliage.
