A Look Back on the 30 Day Painting Challenge: Animals


  1. Love all paintings! That little bunny is adorable!

    1. Thanks Judy! Your snowmen this challenge have been adorable as well!

  2. This Panda is Great! Love the facial expression and how he is holding on to the bamboo. Your little girls all picked wonderful animals for you to paint!!! (Oh, and all your girls have very beautiful names.) Have a super weekend. Enjoy Day #18.

    1. Thanks Joan! Yes, they each have a story about how their names were chosen. Miriam's name came from a dream that I had when I was probably about 19 years old. In the dream I saw a cute little girl, near toddler age, playing outside of a tent in the soil. And in the dream I felt so consumed with love for her for I just knew that she was my daughter. And my heart ached to hold her and be near her. It was a quick dream, and instantly I woke up, but in my head, I woke up to the word "Miriam." The sound of the name Miriam in my ears woke me up from my sleep, and deep down inside I knew that one day I'd have a baby girl and that I would call her Miriam, Right then I prayed to God, thanking Him for the dream. That dream took place at age 19. I didn't have Miriam though until age 26. And she came with a twin, Faith, who was named after one of my husband's friend's daughters. Sephora was named after Moses' wife Zipporah. The name Sephora is a derivation of the Hebrew name Zipporah. I just have always loved the name Sephora, ever since I was a kid reading my Bible studies, so we named Sephora, Sephora.
