Focus

This week I have been focusing on many things.  I have been drawing both illustrations and portrait drawing.  I have been writing and rewriting all week.  Now, I am at a point to post.  So, today is a dump of all my work this week.  Sorry, to post all at once but at least I am posting.

The idea was from three illustrations I saw on Pinterest.  I would give credit but I could not find the artist.  I have combined them into one story.  I love it.  I thought of it as two kids, probably siblings playing in the rain and it got a little windy.  The hurricanes have been hitting the USA and I have been thinking about them.  I did not know what I could do but then I drew this.  I think it is to show – I am thinking of all of you.  I can’t help much but I can pray for you.

The next one is

This drawing is from an AGT contestant, Evie Claire.  I, too, am mormon and when I heard that her father past away yesterday my heart was saddened.  I saw her talking about him on the show.  She portrayed such beauty and innocence.  Thank you.  This is such a wonderful thing in such harshness.  I appreciate your valor and strength.  I had to draw it.  I know I did not put a face in.  This is because I believe there are many people – girls, women, and teens that have this innocence and purity.  I thought you could put in the person you see.

I think purity, innocence, and cleanness of mind are some of the the greatest attributes a person could possess.

I know you, Evie and your family are going through a tremendously hard time.  Prayers of a stranger are with you.  There is a story that I heard that has given me a lot of strength. It is Blessings by Laura Story.  I hope you will hear it and gain strength, too.  Thank our Heavenly Father that families are forever.  We just miss them in between time.

  1. You mention that women/girls can have those qualities but what about men? Can’t a young man also be just as innocent and pure as a young woman? While yes the sexes do divide us are we not all human beings all capable of the exact same things?

    From my understanding of Mormonism things are very much along gender lines ect, but for me I guess I just have a hard time understanding how a loving heavenly father would treat any of us any different based on wether we we’re make or female. Why not treat all of us the same, if he does in fact love is all equally?

    • You are right. Boys and young men and others – adults can be innocent, too. That is a great idea for another drawing. Thank you. God does love us all. I was just focusing on the innocence of a girl or young lady. That was where I was at the time. But innocence is gender neutral in all reality.

      Mormonism does believe that some things lean more toward gender specific, however basic attributes are not that way. I apologize if that is how it came across. Though, there are gender specific roles in some areas that does not mean there is not equality. All people, races, intelligence, and nationalities are equal. People make people unequal not Heavenly Father.

    • Also, I have a new drawing going up tomorrow. I would appreciate your comments on it, too. Thank you for your time to look at my website. May your day be beautiful and your night peaceful.
