God's glory is revealed all around us, if we have eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to understand.

Codori Farm, Gettysburg
I am blessed every year to be part of the Plein Air Paint Out at the Gettysburg Festival. We paint all week on the battlefields and around Gettysburg and then exhibit the works at the end of the week. This year we exhibited at the Historic Railroad Station where Abraham Lincoln came through to deliver the Gettysburg Address. I love this event for the sheer kinship with history. One cannot stand for 3 hours in one spot while painting, partaking in the vast open spaces of the battlefields and not connect with it's significance. It is a worship experience as I thank God for those before me who sacrificed all to deliver a nation, just as Christ sacrificed all to deliver our souls. This scene, I hope, fills your senses with peace, quietness and tranquility.
I am the owner of Art & Soul Gallery in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania. My works and 35 other local area artists works are exhibited and available for sale at the gallery. Contact the gallery at 717-761-1270. We are located on the second floor of the West Shore Farmer's Market. Please visit and consider the beautiful original works by Central Pennsylvania artists.
After a career in business, I couldn't shake a lifelong desire to create art. In 2003 I began this wonderful journey of painting and sculpting. There is so much to learn and always new ways to improve and grow as an artist. In my small way, I hope to show the glory of God all around us.
