It Is Well with My Soul
Horatio G. Spafford


When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

O Master Let Me Walk with Thee 24x24

On display now thru September 30 at the Connections Gallery at 
Belle Meade United Methodist Church.

O Master, let me walk with thee
in lowly paths of service free;
tell me thy secret; help me bear
the strain of toil, the fret of care.
Help me the slow of heart to move
by some clear, winning word of love;
teach me the wayward feet to stay,
and guide them in the homeward way.
Teach me thy patience, still with thee
in closer, dearer company,
in work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
in trust that triumphs over wrong.
In hope that sends a shining ray
far down the future's broadening way;
in peace that only thou canst give,
with thee, O Master, let me live.

Verdant Reflections


6"x6" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife
SOLD


Here is another painting from Tims Ford Lake. (to see others, just click "lake" on the search list to the right.) This painting was on a particularly calm day. The afternoon reflections on the still water were long and bold. A great day to paint reflections.

Sandcastle


12"x12" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife
NFS


Seven Days on 30-A: Day 7

Our final day on the beach—and the final painting of this series. Our family loves to build sandcastles. The previous day's storm made perfect conditions for sandcastle building on the beach. This painting is of the kids attempting the most epic sandcastle yet.

A Storm Rolled In


6"x6" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife
SOLD


Seven Days on 30-A: Day 6

This is one of my favorite paintings. Until now, I have never experienced a stormy day on the beach. It was so much fun to paint. All of the colors drastically changed. The horizon and sky became an abstract of line and shape. Fortunately, our beach house had a covered  porch from which to paint, but I still go wet in the end.  It was a fast and frantic printout, but totally worth it!

Changing Tides


6"x6" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife
SOLD


Seven Days on 30-A: Day 5

I am always amazed at how different each day is on the beach. Today the waves were stronger. The higher tides carved interesting shapes on the shore. This painting is of the newly carved beach with a mother carefully watching her children as they play in the stronger currents.
