"Fishing in the Moment" 24" x 36" Hudson River School Daily Painters by Connie Tom

These two lucky fishermen have escaped the busy-ness of life, not only to fish if they please, but to experience the elements of life and nature. They are out on the lake during a beautiful sunset. I wanted to catch this moment in time when the clouds start rolling in and the light from the sunset filters through the atmosphere in the heavens above creating a myriad of cloud colors and quite a light show. When the clouds start moving in fast, you don't know what's going to happen. There's a feeling of vulnerability and also an element of anticipation. In awe of this breathtaking beauty, these fishermen are happily... "enjoying the moment." ~ Connie

This work will be up for auction on Barry Chappell's Fine Art Showcase. Please watch this blog for exact dates and times.

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." ~ Romans 10:17

"Woodland Stream Waterfall" ~ 20" x 24" A Painting a Day Hudson River School Landscapes by Connie Tom

There is something so peaceful to watch... and listen to the gurgling waters of a lively stream flowing through the woodland area, especially when there is a small waterfalls on it's course. It's extra special when the beautifully colored autumn foliage grace the trees. I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I enjoyed painting it! ~ Connie

"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, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward." ` Psalm 19:9-11.

"Aspens" ~ 20"w x 16"h A Painting a Day Hudson River School Autumn Tree Aspen Landscapes Paintings by Connie Tom

With all my heart, I hope my paintings evoke feelings of all that "good" is. I guess you could say the characteristics and nature of God. Feelings of love, peace and joy... feelings of happiness and cheerfulness and laughter even. Feelings of confidence, faith, stability and security. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed painting it. Connie

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye hsall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the LORD; and I will turn away your captivity...." ~ Jeremiah 29:11-14.
