Creative Tuesdays – Chillin’ With Art

Creative Tuesdays – Chillin’ With Art

Watercolour by Janis

Because we are “chillin'” this week at a cottage – just resting and enjoying family, I chose a piece I did a while ago that reminds me of laid back summer days in Canada. I understand some people are too hot in summer but where we are we are delighted with warmer weather, especially if we can cool off in the water.

Good news that made me have a happy dance this week, I found out that 2 of my watercolour batik paintings sold at the Rails End Gallery last month along with my children’s story, Tadeo Turtle.

These are the two that sold.

So enjoy wherever you are – hot or cold. We are always content with Jesus – right?

I am sure you are like me – so much to do during the summer, but all good. Between family visits, gardening, picking vegetables, boating, and walks, there isn’t much time for the computer. And that’s probably a good thing. We need to get out and enjoy this fantastic summer weather – it is brief here in Canada.

This Sunday all of our protestant churches in our small town will get together in the park for a Sizzlin’ Summer Service. This is our 8th season. Each of the pastors/ministers takes part – music, children’s story, message, and I can’t remember what else. Each church also has a job. We pray for good weather and as far as I can remember we have only been inside one year. We have five churches involved (as I said we live in a small town).

Praying that everyone is enjoying their times with family and friends in the out-of-doors.

Psalms 133:1  Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!


1 Corinthians 1:10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.

This joint service with the churches might seem unusual to you but we are a part of the town family. I love this hymn “Part of the Family”. Let’s join together in unity and praise the Lord.
