‘Holiness to the Lord” watercolor

I’ve made a movie of the trip Becky Hartvigsen and I made to Nauvoo, Illinois this summer. We went to Nauvoo to do a meet the artist event at the Havenlight Gallery.  I tried to capture a bit of the past and present in my paintings and whenever you travel with art, you find an adventure.

Here is the link to the movie: https://youtu.be/QbW3n1eMOWU

Straight Way

AE4937DA-32FB-45D0-BF65-E300B7D06591

“Straight Way” 16” x 24” Mixed medium by Sherry Meidell.

”Straight Way” is hanging in a show at the Cottonwood Presbyterian Church 1580 Vine Street, Murray, Utah.  The shows theme is Come Holy Spirit. For the setting of this picture I used a photo which I took in Israel years ago when Dave and I went. It is of the upper Jordan River. There were a lot of people lined up to be baptized in the same river that Christ was baptized. One of the amazing things about the trip was to see so many people worshipping and honoring there God in so many ways.

A lot of my relatives saw the painting last Sunday while they practiced for the Messiah which they will be singing in this December with the Oratorio Society. Go see the show.

Thank you for taking this Inktober journey with me. It’s been fun to have you ride along. Here is a final quote from me and by me:  “We learn to love and how to be strong in the face of adversity from those who have traveled this life before us and with us. We set an example for those who will come after us. – Sherry Meidell
