The story behind this painting is that it was made in 2020 during the lockdown. Life seemed dire to many due to confusion, fear, sickness, death, loneliness and loss of income.
During prayer, I considered how I could visually represent my FAITH in God, so I decided to PICK UP my brush and start painting. I believed God would provide everything I needed to use that lockdown time for His glory, and He did.
I spent many hours on this painting, working with pastel, acrylic, and the non-traditional material, RICE! (I used rice because it was small and I wanted it to represent the tiny grain of faith I imagined myself having.)
After it was finished, I submitted it to the international Engage Art Contest, where it won semi-finalist. “Invisible Forces” also went on to show at the Kansas City Art District’s Jones Gallery, where it SOLD. It now ‘lives’ at a restaurant in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri.
Now, I am creating limited-edition giclées (fine art prints) on canvas for anyone who felt INSPIRED by this story and wants to have beautiful award-winning art on their walls. (Proceeds go to support my family!)
I would like to THANK everyone who has donated or bought from me because God is using you to make my childhood DREAM of turning pain into beauty come true.

We met Gina several years back when she drew us at a festival. We liked both her and the quality of her work so much that several years later, we asked her to draw caricatures at our wedding. It made for the most popular wedding favor at the reception.
Her ability to create accurate and fun drawings while also moving quickly made her the perfect person to ask for this assignment, and it wound up being one of the staples everyone remembers about our wedding. She is excellent, both in work quality and personality, to work with!
