My Strength


For themselves,

they have seen my strength;

watching me,

rise from darkness into light.

Worked on this design over the past weekend. This winged horse design represents a rising of hope and how the light of the sun can chase away the dark and renew that hope within us. I am not sure if it is finished but wanted to post it anyway.  What are your thoughts?

What gives you wings?

Our wings are often clipped by our own self-doubt and fear when God has meant us to fly! ~M

As every culture and region has its own particular versions of Santa Claus and the details surrounding this jolly little man I would like to add my own.  My version of Santa coming to town would be on a horse, not in a sleigh being pulled by flying reindeer, although yes the horse in my version would fly also, haven’t you heard of Pegasus?  Seems to me it would be easier to maneuver onto all those rooftops with one horse rather than eight grumpy reindeer pulling a sleigh?  Thoughts?  Oh, by the way I am not sure what Santa would call his horse any ideas?

Merry Christmas!
