A name. In Hebrew, a name held purpose. It reminded people who you were. It told of interests and abilities, status and authority. The name of Jesus. It was not an uncommon name at the time but there was only One Son. Only one Immanuel. In his name is freedom. It's a beautiful, powerful name. My verse mapping study led me to think about my own name, too. What does it mean and, when it is used, what does it mean to others? How am I living out my purpose, my calling? That's for another page, another verse. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21
Fun fact, these pastels were Marc's as a kid and probably are as old as I am. 🧓 This makes coloring with them both super fun and time consuming, as I have the tendency to press really hard and break them on accident. 😅 #selfportrait#pastel#mixedmedia
Stuck for ideas for Christmas presents? Look no further... This week has seen the sale of some works from my almost forgotten 'Smallworks' website : tomcartmillsmallworks.com (there is a live link in my profile)... So, I thought I'd remind you all that the site exists and functions. I have just added a few more works to the site. All are small, mixed media drawings on board, ready to be hung with fittings attached.

"Red Bird" painting created in photoshop, combining images from my "real world" paintings and digital marks. Digital painting is a great stress reliever for me, which comes in handy this time of year and the undo option is very liberating:)
