"Cold Water Creek II" ~ 09/27/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom


Collection of Randy Mellinger ~ Sparks, NV

This is the second in a series of paintings entitled "Cold Water Creek Series". There is something so exhilarating about a cold water creek. First of all, I like the solitude and listening to just the sounds of nature. Enjoy!

"The law of the LORD is perfect converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, that much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb." Psalms 19:8-10

"Cold Water Creek" ~ 09/26/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom


Collection of Randy Mellinger ~ Sparks, NV

"Cold Water Creek" pictures a view of a cold water creek at sunset. The sun shining on the beautifully colored autumn trees make a stunning contrast to the cool colors of the backdrop of striated rock formations of the bluffs. This work would make a wonderful Christmas gift for your favorite outdoorsman. Enjoy!

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. ~ Psalms 1:1-3

"Creek Retreat VI" ~ 09/24/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom

Collection of Linda Ferszt ~ Houston, TX

I've enjoyed painting this series of paintings called the "Creek Retreat Series". This is the sixth painting in this series. I love sunshine, I love autumn, and I love seeing and painting the reflections in the water. Enjoy!

"For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou has established the earth, and it abideth. They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants." ~ Psalms 119:89-91

"Peace" ~ 09/08/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom


Collection of Jeffrey Antisdel ~ Niles, MI

There is something peaceful about sheep grazing out in the field. They are such docile animals and so dependent upon protection from somebody somewhere. Enjoy!

"Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; bu was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." ~Hebrews 4:14-16

"The Dance of the Line" ~ 09/06/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom

This lucky angler is enjoying the zest of life as he casts his fishing line and watches it dance it's way across the water. Enjoy!

"There remaineth a therefore a rest to the people of God. For he 6that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, p[iercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:9-12
