PEPPUR's blog date order back
My art comes from a background of artsy people. All my family members on both sides are gifted in some form of art. In grade school I made posters. Junior high was a mishmash of string art, scratch art, leather, copper, painting, drawing as well as drafting. In high school I took oil painting classes. At the age of 33 I got involved with a group of ladies who met once a week to do crafts. We evolved to Tole - Painting and ceramics.
Eventually my husband and I opened a store called "Kidd's Tole and Craft Supplies", then Scentsational Weeds -N- Tole. I taught "Wet on Wet" oil painting and Decorative Tole Painting in the shop. Eventually branching out for 2 quarters of college, teaching 15 weeks of oil classes & 8 weeks of Tole. The rules changed and the college required certification (I was not certified due to the expense) so the classes were terminated.
In 1994 after closing the shop I worked at home painting creations from our wood shop. In 1996 we moved to Rochester, Wa. to begin a new career in pizza. 5 years later we sold our half of the business.
I had not painted for 11 years & when talking to our worship leader at our church, she was commenting how they wanted to incorporate all the arts into the worship and would even like to do classes. Thus I taught a 6 week course in painting and our leaders never did get to take the class!
Because of that class my confidence level began to grow & I began painting in worship about June of 2007. My paintings have started selling (I DO NOT sell originals for the most part) but I sell prints "Giclees" on canvas. I personalize them & they have a certificate of number. Some will be limited editions, some not. All of my works are copyrighted, so please, DO NOT DUPLICATE THEM WITHOUT PERMISSION.

RICK JOYNER with Andrei and Amanda Prychodko:
"The HOLY SPIRIT and the ARTS--Those Who Know the CREATOR will be the Most Creative People on the Planet"
"We will soon see artists create paintings that will come straight from the throne room of God. By looking at them, people will receive an impartation of deep prophetic vision and a Heavenly perspective."
However, art belongs to God, and He is going to take art back. Art is a basic form of prophecy, and there is a beauty and anointing about to come upon a host of holy artists whose prophetic art will burn away the fog that is now over it, just like the sun burns away the fog in the morning.
The Power of Art
Art has also been a basic form of worship. Art is a powerful media that can lead to the worship of something or someone. Art can have the power to capture the attention, imagination, and hearts of people. It has actually been more effective in directing the nations than armies or weapons.
The Holy Spirit and Art
In the Bible, artists were the first people to be filled with the Holy Spirit. In the Old Testament, we often find quotes saying that the Spirit of God came on someone, such as we see in II Chronicles 15:1, "Now the Spirit of God came on Azariah the son of Oded," or in II Chronicles 24:20, "Then the Spirit of God came on Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest...." However, it was Bezalel who was the first person in the Bible about whom it was said that he was "filled with the Spirit," which we see in Exodus 31:1-5:
Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "See, I have called by name Bezalel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. "And I have filled him with the Spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship, "to make artistic designs for work in gold, in silver, and in bronze, "and in the cutting of stones for settings, and in the carving of wood, that he may work in all kinds of craftsmanship."
We should also consider that artists, who are inspired by the Holy Spirit, and who will earnestly follow Him as Bezalel, do have a similar role like prophets and priests to reveal Him to the people. To reveal the Lord is the most basic purpose for art, and not only is it the highest form of art, but it is the only true fulfillment that an artist will ever have. Anything else will only lead to a base reduction or perversion of the gift.
