Can you Feel the Fire?


I love this painting! Did you know that you really can feel your paintings?

I have been in secular art shows and felt the anointing of the Holy Spirit on paintings!  Paintings of things that had no Christian images, but still, I could feel His presence on them.   I have even boldly gone up to the artists and said, “You love the Lord!”   They would look at me funny, and say, “I do!  How did you know that?”   Other times I have seen art that would cause me to begin to weep and not be able to speak, because the pleasure of God was so great on their work, it would overwhelm me.

I was at one show, looking at some jewelry and all of a sudden, I could not contain the tears.  I had to leave this woman’s booth.  I was with a friend and they asked if I was ok, but I could not talk to them, I was too overcome with emotion.  I just KNEW that this woman LOVED Jesus, and that was all I could say, “She loves Jesus…”

My friend was curious, and went back to her booth later to ask her some questions.   He found out that, sure enough, she did love Jesus.  She had defected from her country and come to the US to be able to worship freely.  She was not sure how she would be able to support herself when she met a Christian that had taught her how to create jewelry.  She was so grateful, for him, because he helped her learn a way provide for herself.   She said she created her jewelry as worship unto Jesus!!

Someone came to me in a meeting once and asked me if I had felt my paintings.  I realized, I never had.   I feel His presence as I paint so strong sometimes I can hardly stand, but I had never felt Him on my art.  I was painting  “The Golden Eagle: Seer”, at a School of the Seers, and he said when I started painting, the anointing went out about 3 ft or so, and as I continued to paint, it became larger and larger.   I thought that was very interesting.  I also enjoyed watched him as he walked around my painting “feeling” it.

I had brought the Lion and the Lamb painting with me, a prophetic piece I created, where the crowns came at the last minute, by the Spirit.   I also remembered that when I was painting this piece, a woman felt led to walk up to see it closer during a break.  I was speaking with some women off the platform and watched her move towards the painting.  When she got about 10 ft or so away, she cried out and fell backwards.   The women I was speaking with saw it too.  I asked the woman later what happened, and she told me she had always wanted to be “slain in the spirit”, but did not trust a man or woman to do it, so God decided to use His presence on my painting to bless her.

The man asked me to come and stand in front of it.   He prayed for God to let me feel the anointing on my painting, and as I stood there, I did not know what I would feel, but to my surprise, I felt a Crown being placed on my head!!!!   Totally wrecked me!

After that, I went back to my “Golden Eagle: The Seer” painting and every time I would look at it, especially the eagle’s eyes, I could feel an anointing come on my eyes!   I felt like He told me that my painting was being used to release a seer anointing!

When I was painting the Lion and Lamb painting, I ree

I always experience my paintings prophetically, then worship and pray as I paint them.  I believe that God has me do this so that He can rest in them.  Just like a song can carry His presence, everything created as worship to Him, can carry Him too.

Testimony! Another Butterfly gets her Wings!


Over two years ago, a woman sat down to have me do a prophetic portrait for her…and I saw that she was an artist.  I actually kept weeping and weeping over this woman.  I was trying to talk to her, but I could not stop saying…”you are so artsy…you are soooo artsy…”  She looked at me with confusion, although she did not reject what I said, it just seemed like she did not GET it.  I also saw a deep well and prophetic intercessor’s gift inside of her…it was so beautiful to see, and I painted an ink well.


Part of what God has called me to do is to is to help other artists be released into what they are called to do.   I call it “Releasing the Butterflies”. I look at people that are not flowing in their creative gifts yet, or are not aware of their giftings… and THEN I call it forth.    I actually get to see their wings appear sometimes in the spirit…it is sooo cool.  Many times I also see the media the person is called to work in, or is already working with.


With this woman, I saw all these colors and fabrics around her.  I actually saw her DRAPED in fabrics.   I saw textures and collage work. I saw her fingers working in it.  I tried to explain it to her, and give her samples of other’s work, but she still did not get it, but was trying to figure it out.  We talked about it again a couple of times, but she was still thinking about it.


Later that year, she showed me her Christmas decorations, and they were so anointed.  Seriously…I got drunk in the spirit looking at them.  She told me, she was healed one Christmas, and came out of a wheelchair in 2001 after being in it for 3 yrs, so she loves to decorate for Christmas and really goes overboard, but it is sooo beautiful because her LOVE and worship for the Lord comes through this artistic expression and it is tangible.


This morning she showed me some photos. It was of her and a sister doing prophetic acts with fabrics and items at her friend’s new house.   She said, is this what you saw?  (these are her photos)  Looked like ART to me!   She had made the connection.  And I said…YES!!!
…But in a mixed media collage, so I sent her some more “samples” of other’s work.    She then explained that sometimes, when she does intercession with items, the Lord will tell her to get certain things, and she does not know why until the day she is to pray!  She said sometimes He will tell her to bring the shofar for an assignment, so we talked about on the art piece, she might have to get a photo, print it and cut an paste it on the canvas!   We talked about her taking pieces of the fabric and attaching them as well.  She laughed and said she had sooo many fabrics from all over the world God had already had her get to use in intercession.


I believe her art will also be for intercession, and people will be changed as she creates.  Then I asked her to see what she would do for me…and she was getting it very quickly.  I was amazed!  Wow…what a beautiful thing to behold!  She is off to try and recreate what she does in these prayer sessions on a canvas!  She is ready to FLY!!!


She and I are both so excited!!!   I cannot wait to see what she creates.  I KNOW it will be amazing, and anointed!!!
Because she is soooooo sooooo sooooo artsy…!!!!

Painting what you see…seeing what you painted


Yesterday I went before the Lord to paint.  Just me and Jesus.  Recently someone accused me of plagiarism because I use reference photos.  Honestly…it hurt because it was more than one that went to my pastor, and guess what, they were all artists too… They didn’t even have the courtesy to come to me and ask me about it.  Where is the Love in that?  Something like that will knock the wind out of your sails…IF you let it.Well…it is no secret that I use reference photos, and I post that, right on my website, and in the testimonies of what I paint…whether or not I used a photo.  Why do I do that?  Well…because I want to make a painting that is easy to interpret. The bible says, when we prophecy in the Spirit, then we should interpret it.  I am a realist.  That is how I see in the Spirit.  I see visions very realistically…detailed.  So, that is how I want to reproduce it.  I am not mature enough as an artist to paint without photos.  So I look and look until I find the right photos that best represent what I see.  Sometimes I use multiple photos.  If I can find the photographer, I ask permission to use the photo, if I can’t I just use it and say that it is a photo…?  I am so new to this, and am learning as I go…  I just want to paint what I see…so others can.

It also isn’t about making money…either.  Trust me, this ministry COSTS me…it doesn’t MAKE me money.  It is my gift…to the body…and other artists.  I want to give.  have a website called The Prophetic Canvas and artists can join it for free, I made it so they can network and encourage each other.  Do I make anything on it, or get anything from it?  No…it is just a way I can serve others.  I also made my website by myself…and take a lot of time to write in detail about each painting.  Why?  Because artists contact often saying…”THANK you for your website.  It ministered to me”…or “I am excited about doing prophetic art now.”  They have even said, “thank you for saying you use reference photos…when I try to paint from my spirit, it looks horrible.”   I do it from a place of trying to love others…


So, back to the painting…I have found, when you want to run…that is the time to press into God…so stood in front of the canvas, and waited…before the Lord (not with the best attitude either;).   Immediately I saw a yellow beam…it was like a light beam of Glory coming down, so I painted it.  I thought of BREAKTHROUGH.  Then I saw a rainbow over to the right of the yellow beam.  So I put it where I saw it on the canvas.  Then the Lord told me to put a cloud under the rainbow….so I did.  Then I waited, and waited…there was nothing else, He just asked me, “what do you see?”  I saw the Lion of Judah’s face in the cloud…but nothing else.  I FELT like a Dove or a butterfly should go in it…and I looked for reference photos to do that…but nothing moved me…so I am still waiting to see what He wants.  Because it wasn’t finished, I didn’t post a photo of the painting yesterday…was still waiting…

As I was painting it, someone in particular was in my heart.  She sees rainbows too, we have seen them together…and God has been doing amazing things in her life!!!!   It is like the Glory of God has been coming down onto her giving her breakthrough.  I actually thought, she would like this painting…

Last night I went to be with the Lord and He let me cry on His shoulder.  I was asking Him what to do…I don’t want to paint something illegal…but I also want to paint something that honors Him by being most like what He shows me.  He told me…”I will help you…just do it ALL for me.  Paint everything for me.”  So…that is the key really…it is ALL about doing it for HIM…  Love is the best motivator and sustainer of all things we put our hands to…and no matter what anyone says or does to us, we will still be in LOVE…nothing can separate us from it.


Today I was hanging out listening to the thunder, and the person who had been on my heart while I was painting yesterday called me, out of the blue…we have not talked for some time…and she says…there is a rainbow out right now!  She had been writing it on my FB page and I didn’t see it.I ran out with my camera…and got some shots…

Check out the painting, and the photo…

God is the best encourager ever!


And this is the shot she got and she said she was thinking of me…about me painting when she got it 🙂  check out the the cloud under the rainbow.  She also said she saw a lion’s face in the clouds… How cool is that…?  We also both saw rabbits and took photos of them while we were seeing the rainbow in 2 different places.  Rabbit means rapid multiplication.The comments from my friend after she saw the painting and note I posted on FB.  DANGGG that was awesome!! I can’t stop smiling and i laughed and jumped up and down in my chair so hard – also saw a LION in the clouds today and uploaded it like 5 min ago!!! PROUD OF YOU!!!! ^^ God will guide you – and lead you in faith -one step at a time – that’s what God has been teaching me 😛
