Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. I realized that I had not shared about his hobby on my blog before. He is an artist and is very good, in my humble opinion 😉 His work is at http://www.southernillinoismercantileco.com
He also has a Facebook page you are welcomed to check out and like if you wish…https://www.facebook.com/aaallgaierartwork/
I thought I would share a bit of his work. I admit I am a bit biased…..but it is a joy watching him do something he loves. He loved to paint and sketch as much as I like to write.
These are just a few of his pieces. Each piece is signed with:
1 Corinthians 10:31 “So then, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of [our great] God.” AMP
So love what you do, and do what you love…..I write, he paints and sketches. We will never be rich and famous….but we will always be content.
