A Life Purified

I can't believe it has been a week since I posted! It has been full...

But here is a painting I (finally!) finished! I am trying to use up materials that I have lying around, and I found several old wooden embroidery hoops, thought they would make good frames for painted pieces, so "hooped up" some canvas paper, primed it, and proceeded to paint! The image is one that I will use to prepare prints from, so I purposefully didn't show the wooden hoop. The original will be available tomorrow in my etsy shop -

There are five crowns in the picture, can you find them all? One is a little tricky, but I bet you will find it! Below the picture I have included references to the five crowns of the believer in Christ...enjoy!



THE FIVE CROWNS OF THE BELIEVER

The believer’s life and faith are rewarded by Christ at His coming I Thess. 2:19 -20
Romans 14:10-12; I Corinthians 3:12-15; II Corinthians 5:9-10

1. Crown of joy for those who suffer - I Thess. 2:19
2. Crown of endurance for those who master the old nature - I Cor. 9:24-25
3. Crown of righteousness for those who long for and pray for the return of Jesus Christ
II Tim. 4:8
4. Crown of life for those who persevere under trial or even die for the sake of the gospel
James 1:12
5. Crown of Glory for those who are faithful in the leadership of the flock. I Peter 5:4

Oh wow Cindy, a beautiful painting. I found the five crowns, yeah!
I can follow your blog now, you won't be lost in the world of blogging. The Bible messages are so deep, what beautiful verses, thank you so much for writing these down on your blog.
Yeah, I found freedom through the upset time. I think truly it was ment to be for all artists also.
Just shows you, I was feeling so trampled and down, you all came and rescued me from my pit.
Such an important part of my life.
Thank you so much.
Through it I felt I'd been given a pardon and could be me.
I was able to stand back and look were I was going. It gave me direction also.
Talking about direction, my blog will show when you place a new post now so I can direct my blog to yours, this is ace!

Hi Cindy, thank you so much for your message. I have ordered a printer, seems to be a great one, so fingers crossed? Going to enjoy visiting Staples to find about packaging. Will go over to ask Paulette if she can help, thank you for this advice, really helpful.

Have a great day, sending you a BIG SMILE:D
