Sheila’s painting entitled “Good Morning” was chosen by CIVA/Christians in the Visual Arts, to be part of their traveling exhibition.
Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the first fruits of all your increase.
From the beginning of the Old Testament to the end of the New, returning to our Creator the first fruits of what has already been given us—in talent, labor, and wealth—stands as a hallmark of God’s faithful people. The entire biblical narrative is filled with images of feasting, fruitfulness, and faithful service in which both God’s people and kingdom flourish. Joyfully and creatively engaging in the good work that God has given us to do, yielding our best efforts to the Lord, we return our first offering to him.
This exhibit will open at CIVA’s Gallery 212 in Madison WI , on October 6, 2017 and then travel to a variety of venues throughout North America.
