wall art for my home

How do you tell if you have the knack for photography, or art, or songwriting, or poetry, or any number of endeavors? Practicing is a must. Feedback and encouragement is helpful. Joining groups of like minded people is good. But even then I find that interests change over time and as long as there is a creative outlet it is all good.
For now I am practicing haiku and digital art. I’ll see where I am in 5 years…

It’s not merely that God founded and found me, but that I am now found in God, through Jesus Christ the Lord…
May the Holy Spirit guide you in all your endeavors!

  1. I personally love the idea of combining poetry and art. Especially the haiku form because it’s simple and it could even fit on the photo itself. and you’ve got pretty close to perfect I’d say! it would look lovely on a wall.
