New Studio Open House

New Studio Open House

Recently I’ve shared about how I moved into a new art studio at the beginning of the year. It took some setting up, but I’m finally settled in. I’ve completed a couple paintings, a drawing, and working on two more paintings. God has been good to me. He’s provided rent for me (often just at the last minute) and I have room to work on big canvases like my current 48″ x 72″ project. More on that later. Right now though, I would like to invite you to my Open House event Saturday, February 20th, from 1-4 pm. I’d love to meet with you and chat, show what I’m working on right now and a few older pieces as well. There will be some hors d’ ouevres and refreshments. It’s a little tricky to find my studio, since the address doesn’t show up on Google Maps yet, but here’s a map I made to help you out: Fine Art by Matt Philleo  @Artisan Forge Studios 1106 Mondovi Rd, Eau Claire, WI I hope to see you there and thanks for supporting me as an artist! Share Your Thoughts! If you have any comments or questions about this post, please leave me your feedback below! I will personally get back to you. Can you help me spread the word?

In fact, the whole purpose of our lives is to bring glory to God. The first and biggest way we can do that is accept the fact that we need Him and receive His forgiveness for our sins, His gift of eternal life to us through the accomplishment of His Son’s death and resurrection. After that, step by step, we go on a journey to let the glory of God shine in our lives moment by moment, day by day, walking in dependence upon Him and bringing every blessing and every trial as a gift of thanks and a petition for help. In the Bible, the prophet Elijah was about to be taken up to heaven. His special role as a messenger to God’s people would be transferred to His student and successor, Elisha. These were big shoes to fill: Elijah had prayed for a drought to cause the nation of Israel to seek God again, and God shut up the heavens for three years. Elijah asked God to show His glory by fire on Mount Carmel so the Israelites would stop worshiping idols, and God sent the fire. And Elijah prayed again for it to rain, and sure enough,...
