“The kingdom
Is like a small
Mustard seed…”
-New Testament 1869S

Just to share a story of how “The Kingdom is like a small Mustard Seed”, and when it grows, even the birds can make their nests there, so great it becomes and so abundant. We can do this with our world. I had a lovely surprise on Mother’s Day. I took myself out for a late evening Chinese food dinner after a great day in the studio, missing my children who live elsewhere. As I was seriously enjoying a big glass of plum wine, having ordered my dinner, I was surprised by a complete stranger, of a different culture than myself, who came up and told me that he was taking care of my dinner! I was surprised, amazed, and so very touched by his act of simple generosity as he saw me there alone on Mother’s Day and did a loving gesture. I will pass this on, and was so heart-warmed - it made my day and my year. We can do this with our world.

These paintings are each unique art works. Imperfections are to be expected and are the hallmark of original art and the artist's hand. Sizes of original mulberry paper painting may vary, each approximately 14” x 18” - mat size is 18” x 22”. Each comes with its own Certificate of Authentication, packaged in a clear sleeve.

I’m happy to send more photos and details upon request. Prints also available.
