Nature, Music, and Grace

By Brittany Smith

Note from the editor:

John 1:16 says that “…from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”

God’s grace is evident everywhere. We see it in the intricacies of nature, blooming forth in the spring season. We hear it in the sounds of birds and the breezes that sweep through the trees. All around us is evidence of God’s grace, causing us to pause and reflect, giving us reason to worship, igniting us in our artistry.

About the Artist

Brittany Smith is a wife and mother of three, living outside of Raleigh, NC and painting in the margins of her full life. She finds inspiration by spending time outside in nature, traveling, enjoying fresh flowers from her neighbor’s garden, time with the Lord, music, a trip to the local antique store, and more. Brittany finds that inspiration is everywhere when she has eyes to see it.  Brittany loves to create mixed media work that incorporates her love of vintage and antique treasures, and she paints primarily with heavy body acrylics.
