Still Waters Wins Award of Merit

“Still Waters” Wins Crystal Award of Merit in “Waterscapes” Online Exhibition by Gallery RingCrystal Award of Merit; Joyful Art; Denise Gracias

This painting was inspired by the el Camino, an ancient 800km walk across Spain. St. James, the Apostle of Christ, walked this as he spread the Gospel. During the heat of July with little shade, the long stretches of fields grew monotonous. However, as I approached the the town of Fromista, a stream greeted me, offering refreshment and rest. This painting was a pleasure to paint and to reminisce. I am grateful to  Gallery Ring for the honour.


“He Leads Me to Still Waters” Psalm 23

To me, roads are both exciting and intimidating.  Have you ever had that dread of taking a wrong turn and knowing you are off track somewhere in the middle of nowhere?  On the other hand, have you ever taken a walk or drive in new territory…yet felt safe…knowing that God Is Watching over you?
