Art for the Glory of God

I want to give a quick shout out to a dear, beloved friend of mine who has launched a blog.  Please check her out!

Liz Downing is one of my very best friends.  When we met in 2006 (is that right, Liz?), we found we had a great deal in common and developed a fast friendship.  Liz is so many things- artist, worshipper, devoted friend, student, and teacher.  During the years I've had the pleasure of counting Liz as my friend, I've never seen her pursue anything with less than a wholehearted passion.  She dives completely into everything she does.

Liz's blog, Art for the Glory of God, is a forum for her to share her artwork (paintings, pastels, sketches, and whatever else she's working on) with anyone who is interested.  She's incredibly talented- just take a look at her work!  Liz is a constant encouragement and inspiration to me, both in the beautiful pieces she creates and in the way she lives her life.

I believe there is glory in working hard, doing all things in excellence and joy.  Liz exemplifies this lifestyle and it shows in her artwork!  Check her out today, and keep up with her on the blogroll to the right.
