Melanie Dorsey shares how she first began painting in 2013 on a whim to stage a piece of furniture that she had given a makeover. She listed the piece for sale and knew staging would push the sale. It did but also had several inquiries over her simple bird painting.
Thus began her "career" in art! She painted; she prayed. As she prayed and listened, the Lord began speaking here and there to her heart about something new He was leading her to and through.
What few people know is that her son, Andrew, was (IS) the artist in her family. Many of the supplies I began with were from his stash. Often tears flowed as she picked up a marker, a can of paint, a colored pencil or a waterproof pen - they were little reminders of her son and hints of a new promise from God.
