Okay...don't listen to this post...but you MIGHT regret it!

Okay I don't USUALLY post up Give-aways because lets be honest...with you guys in the running, also, my chances go from PROBABLY not going to win--to MOST DEFINITELY not going to win.

But seeing how this is Sunday, and it pulls at me to be somewhat serious in nature...I wanted to tell you about these pictures that I found from reading
CrazyLand's blog, that are being given away.

Because...I'm OBSESSED with Jesus pictures. Really! And couldn't pass up the opportunity to maybe get one of these BEAUTIFUL pictures.

You wouldn't know unless you have been in my house...when I had a house and not a basement with my parents

But when I DID have my house...I had a Jesus Wall. Of all my favorite pictures that I have collected of him by different artists. Of course, without a lot of means...I haven't gotten EVERY ONE that I have every wanted...but after seeing these pictures...I must say...

I felt like that spoiled brat girl on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (Old Skool version) where she sings that song about wanting a "GOLD EGG" and wanting it "NOW"...

That's how I feel about these pictures.

Plus...it looks like to me that EVERYONE wins with this one...I think.

David Bowman: has had a passion for art ever since he could pick up a pencil. He loves creating images of the Savior that inspire and uplift. Along with his Christian fine art, David has also written and illustrated a series of scripture storybooks for children titled "Who's Your Hero". Check out his website at bowman-art.com to see more of his precious art.

"Innocence" The Savior tells us we need to become as little children to inherit the kingdom of God. I've often wondered what it is about little children Jesus loves most, and I think its their innocence. They are clean slates, seeing the world and others through untarnished eyes. Their hearts are pure, without the baggage of cynicism and self-doubt. In this piece, I've tried to imagine how a child would act upon meeting the Master for the first time. Without reservation or inhibition, I think he would simply want to play with Him. He would be at complete ease, allowing his pure little heart to soak in the love and laughter of His pure, infinite heart. Its no wonder Christ delights in these little ones and sets them up to be our examples


"Security"One of the greatest human needs is a sense of security. In all aspects of life, we naturally gravitate towards anything that makes us feel safe. In this piece, I wanted to convey a sense of complete peace and calm like only the Savior can provide. It's a security that allows us to rest assured, without fear or worry, when we put ourselves trustingly in His arms. Little children have that inherent kind of trust in their parents, so it's fitting that the man and girl who modeled for "Security" are actually father and daughter. They generatedthe exact feel I was looking for.



"My Child"This piece conveys an intimate, up-close-and-personal feeling of the Savior's love. Notice how all the lines draw your attention and point towards Jesus' face in the center.

I chose the name "My Child" because the only thing that could compare (even remotely) to Christ's compassion for us is the love of a parent for his/her child. This image is also intended to put things in perspective. Above all, we are God's children first. He allows us the privilege of experiencing parenthood for ourselves and we are entrusted to be the mothers and fathers of His children here on earth.

Remember this is over by tomorrow!!! So hurry!

Can't blame me...I just found out today! :)

Love,

Shelle

I love seeing pictures of Jesus like this. They're not the typical on the cross pictures and show His humanity.

Well, if you have to freak out over something, I think this is pretty safe.

And I'm missing your house for you. With all your pics of every kind hanging on YOUR wall. What is it about that, anyway?

Love the pictures, they're fab. Thanks!
