Crocus Flowers for my Daily Devotional Sketch March21, 2013 ©CindyRippe2013
I think most artists have moments of self doubt, self criticism, and procrastination.  It's a part of our personality I guess.  Well, I've sure been working my way through all of the above lately.  I do these sketches in my Daily Guideposts Devotional. Sometimes every day (which was my plan) and sometimes not as often as I'd like.  This is today's sketch, crocuses that I sketched from photos taken last year at Lake Katherine.  The plan is to create a loose sketch while I think about that day's devotion. It's not supposed to be a finished design but every time I photograph a page I see all of my mistakes. It takes lots of will power to just let it go and not fuss with the details. Then, by the time I take the picture, I feel that it's better not to share it.

I'm posting this one today for my friend Kelly Hoernig.  She said that she misses these little drawings and encouraged me to start posting them again.  As I started to type this, my friend Laurie, sent a text message with a picture of a painting that I did for her a looong time ago.  She wanted to tell me she was thinking of me and that she was glad to have a talented friend.  I'm so blessed to have both of these incredible women as my friends and support team.  If either of you are reading this, THANK YOU for the reminders. I do have a gift that just needs to be shared. (and it doesn't have to be perfect)

Today's Devotion, written by Erin MacPherson, was about reminders too.  It was exactly what I needed to read today.

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made.... Romans 1:20


  1. How I wish I could pluck every artists doubts and fears right out of their head. :-)

    I'm glad you were given loving reminders to share what you do -- it matters. (((hugs)))

  2. Yes, it is a truly wonderful gift - I absolutely love the crocus and so glad to see the devotional guide post once again, makes me happy today so thank you for that!
