Quick Start to Watercolor:
Learn Foundation Concepts, Have Fun & Gain Confidence Painting with Watercolor
Have you wanted to paint with watercolor, but feel intimidated or nervous by the supplies or techniques? Or, does learning watercolor seem like a hobby that will demand many hours of practice before it becomes enjoyable (and fun).
In this two-part series, you'll learn how I set up, my favorite products (less than 7!), and the basic techniques you need for a fun and satisfying experience with watercolor.
You can enjoy this versatile and learnable hobby with just a few instructional videos. I'll show you how. (Plus, come away with two completed paintings!).

Painting through the Prayers & Promises of Psalm 143
Going through difficult seasons wears on us all. Life is full of hard places and seasons.
But when hard seasons turn to dry places, when your heart and soul lose their vitality and regular practices of faith aren't working, what do you do?
Journey to Psalm 143, where David raises his heart and soul in an anguished prayer to God and discovers that while he may not have the outcome he wants, there is something better for him...renewal of hope and life.
