IF: Yield/Mustard Seed

It has been in the 70s all week! This is the time of year when I am torn between the garden and painting. While doing one, I am dreaming about the other. I hope they both give a high yield this year.

I have recently admired the work of Becky Kelly. I used her painting to select my color palette for this piece. As a result I feel like I have painted something fresh! I normally would have painted the sky with blues and the tree browns. It feels good to be painting outside my box.

The inside work, errands and painting are done. I can't wait to wake up in the morning, make some coffee and head outside!


  1. This is a gorgeous piece Natalie! This time of year makes it even easier to see God in all things -- thank you for expressing that through your art. This morning I woke up to a Thunderstorm, but now it's sunny, two of my favourite things! "Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!" :)

  2. I love this! The tree is amazing! My favorite is the little guy reading a book, looks so cozy :0)

  3. I REALLY like this one...the size is beautiful. This belongs on a wall :) -Jenni Kupelian
