APR : Treasure

This week's theme for Artist's Play Room is "What do you treasure?"

Well, that's a weighty question.  My first response is to think of  this quote from Matthew 6:19-21  - Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 

So, my life's goal is to have my treasure in heaven, not on earth.  One of my treasures in heaven will be the relationships I formed  here on earth.  Especially my most important earthly relationship, my husband.  So in celebration of that, I did this little sketch of our wedding day decorations:

Paper lanterns, twinkle lights, candles hanging from a tree, hydrangeas, delphiniums, and gingham ribbons.  A treasured day!


  1. your wedding must have been beautiful, but your drawing sure is! I love all the lanterns and twinkling lights, especially the votive candle tree. I was thinking about that verse too!

  2. This is a really beautiful little drawing, you have such sensitivity in the way you create your images. Lovely interpretation of the challenge.

  3. gorgeous little sketch, it gives such a soft and beautiful effect. I feel like I know how your wedding must have felt. Thanks for participating!

  4. That's lovely, I love the subtle colouring. It must have been a wonderful day.
