Good morning or whatever time it is during the day for you all! I do pray you will all have a blessed day!
Being a Christian is hard work when you want to do what is right. Being a Christian artist is more of a challenge because many artists I meet in conversation are secular and do not have the same thoughts as I do. And when I meet one like in the organization I am a member of, it is like a breath of fresh air!
In the area mall the Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier aka “FASST” I met up with Barbara and her brother Douglas as they were in the FASST store front as it were their turn to manage the store. As it turns out, she and her husband have a ministry as well!
She is an artist along with her brother and this was good to know. Not all of us artists feel we need to leave GOD out of our lives , and in this world when you want to do clean hearted drawings, it will make those who want to draw things not worth repeating.
People fascinate me because I care about their souls. I draw tracts, Biblical themes , portraits and couples. I do draw still life, but I would rather take photos of flowers to get the full impact of the color of how it is. That’s how I feel about it right now for what I draw, for I maybe led by the HOLY SPIRIT to draw something else.
I do love to enter my drawings in art events. These pictures you see are from last months showing in the FASST art gallery in Binghamton.
Artwork was in one of the local newspapers too.
Always stay humble while sharing your work. I hope I always will be. My husband and other people say I am and that is good. Once you think you are better than others that’s when you are shown you are wrong. I strive to be good and better than I was the last time I drew anything. I draw better from realife and Photos. I am able to take my time and pay attention to the lines of the subject. For when I do quick sketches it will be for children’s books like I have done for the Brooklyn Arts Sketchbook Project. That will be in another blog with those pictures.
Here is a video of the lastest Art Gallery showing.
Once I become known in GODS timing I will be able to make a living from it as GOD sees fit. So with that being said, I am not there yet. But I will not give up for I depend on GOD to lead the way.
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
King James Version (KJV)
That’s what we need to do when we need to get through the nonsense of the world. I pray that in all I do, any blog post I do will encourage others to do GOD’s will in all that you do. For by faith is how we walk, with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS giving a loving guidance at all times.

Reblogged this on GODs Team! Be encouraged..
I haven’t yet developed the language yet to describe art as eloquently as I’d like, so I’ll give my best try.
I like the simplicity and authenticity of your art, well done – thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you very much Don! Many blessings! I needed to hear the encouragement right now! 🙂
My pleasure, “de nada” 🙂
I hate to seem unappreciative, but I do not have any siblings. For unless I misunderstood….it looks like it says I have a brother. 🙂. I do call those who are believers brothers or sisters tho!😀
“de nada” = “it’s nothing”, or “no worries” in Spanish – I dabble in foreign languages … sorry, I thought you’d get it …
So, my pleasure, it’s nothing 🙂
Reblogged this on Don Charisma and commented:
Long time follower of my blog “JJ Maslin”, of “GODs Team! Be encouraged.” blog reached out to me, in her own words :
“I am a Upstate New York Christian Illustrator. My goal is to be able to connect with other Black Christian artists here in Binghamton New York to have an Art Gallery either brick and mortar or online.”
She’s self described – “Christian Black Woman Artist”
So, I proudly present her art, as a gift for you, I hope you like 🙂
