What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday

Here's my desk for your perusing.
It's very crowded as I have a small desk.
One canvas is on top of another.
This is the canvas on top.
It's still a long way from done.
This is the canvas at the bottom.
Did some experimenting with
undertones for the skin
and I'm afraid I just made her look
like she had a rash or something.
I need a LOT of practice!
This is the 3rd canvas,
also a work in progress.
It didn't fit on top of the table and
is lying on top of a magazine,
on top of a box of crochet thread,
which is balancing on top of goodness knows what!

Because there was no space on my desk,
I had to do my journal on my lap.
I was reading about St. Paul,
and how the Jews in Antioch
were so enraged at his preaching,
that they stoned him and
dragged him out of the city
thinking he was dead.
The very next day, he was out
preaching again!!
Now, how does a man do that,
where does he get his fire,
his passion, his conviction?

In Corinthians, St. Paul claims,
"I am what I am what I am
by the grace of God."

And we are what we are
by the grace of God too!

Visit the amiable Julia of Stamping Ground
for more desks and ongoing projects.

  5. I'd never dare work on one canvass while it was on top of another, I'd get paint and glue on the one below! Love the one with the flowers on it.

  6. Well you've certainly created some choices to work on in between everything else! Love what I'm seeing and the House canvas brings me to ask - how do you know when they're finished?

  10. love your work! I know how you feel about lack of space on your workdesk!

  11. hi Patsy they are thumbnails, not the full image, enable pop ups on your web browser and then double click on the image, if you click and nothing happens you will usually get a display in the top bar of your web browser saying "pop ups blocked not a trusted site" alot of people have pop ups blocked without knowing it affects thumbnails and image viewing too,

    you have a lovely post today and I too sometimes journal on my lap, and eat and drink and do Mac stuff too!!!
