Happy New Year from Drawing Nearer!
Wanda & I are excited about all the new energy and upcoming adventures on the 2011 horizon.

This original oil pastel, titled Offering of Color, along with 17 others were selected to be showcased at the new Water Gallery in Lansdale, PA March 18 through April 24.

This was the first in a series of 52 oil pastels I did as part of my early morning devotional time while I was up at Mensch Mill Camp & Retreat Center from 2002--2005.

Each of these oil pastels are unique unto themselves and yet themes would appear in the images and the groups of such themes are used in Wanda's and my book, Drawing Nearer: Devotional Workbook of Creative Prayer, where many of these artworks are displayed.

For more information about the oil pastels, Water Gallery and the book please visit our website www.drawingnearer.com

We wish you all the joy and adventure this new year will bring to each of you!
Blessings, Suzanne & Wanda
