Molly the lab and pit bull mix dog and more

So I took my Molly the lab and pit bull mix dog drawing to the Eastern Oregon art festival last week, and although I did not get any awards, I got tips on how to improve my art.
Here it is finished :

Finished
and Framed
Framed
I also put in this picture that I took last year, near Secret Beach, Oregon.
Here I am at the art show

I have also started typing a collection of my Great-Great Grandpa Earl Dewey Fisher Stories, and plan on adding them individually to genealogy sites, and one or more books for Short stories that he had hoped one day to published, but died before he could make that happen. 
I now have art for sale right here  The price of the art ranges from free to $30. Extra costs are have to pay  is shipping and handling, and an optional cost is for if you it to come framed which is $15 from combined cost of $11 for a 11x14 frame, $3 for the extra S&H and $1 for the cardboard box to ship it all in. Normal Shiping is the Drawing, and DIY packaging in a vanilla envelope. Plans for an art sales blog is in the making. There will be an art for sale and a flopped art for sale page. All of my art I've made, that is not on this blog I plan on making soon, will be not for sale art. Some of the not for sale art will be just temporarily not for sale, and the rest is indefinitely not for sale.   



 Thought I'd add this scripture:
Mosiah 4:30 But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God, and continue in the faith of what ye have heard concerning the coming of our Lord, even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, and perish not.

Molly lab/pitX dog WIP 2 and more

So here is my progress on my drawing
6-21-17

6-23-17
6-24-17
and here is a verse I feel like sharing :
Moroni 7:46-47 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, if ye have not charity, ye are nothing, for charity never faileth. Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail— But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.
In institute last week we went over Abraham 1
I was on vacation last week, and on the the way home my family went on a hike over at June Lake near Mount St. Helens.

Molly drawing for the Eastern Oregon art festival and more

This year I've decided to be part of the Eastern Oregon art festival. As a good portion of the drawings and paintings I've made in the 5 years is technically not original art, I've gone with making a new drawing for that purpose. So I have a drawing of my dog Molly, That I'm going to be calling "Molly the Lab and Pit bull mix dog" I'll be calling it by the abbreviated name "Molly lab/pitX dog" for now on this blog until I finish it.
2 days ago

one day ago
I plan on add flowers and a shadow by the time I finish this. I've also noticed that there is some parts at an angle and straight at others, so I plan on fixing the straight stuff to be angled as in the picture I'm basing this off to avoid a similar problem with how a drawing of a Rhodesian ridgeback I made back in October 2015. 

So in institute this week we went over Moses Chapter 8.

here is a scripture I felt like sharing: 
Malachi 4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Art and Genealogy

I do realize that I haven't made a post in the last few weeks. This has been due to spending my free time doing "stray pit bull puppy",
(This is a dog I thought was a Stray. It turned out it was just a free range dog from up the street where I live.) 
and family history. There is this really cool genealogy site to check out if you have a Familysearch account. It's called relativefinder. I just felt like sharing that because I found out I have 10 direct ancestors I wouldn't have otherwise known that they were Pilgrims. There are also other groups of interest that you can check, like the martin and willie handcart companies. I know now that I have 50 of the people who were on Willie handcart company. People of interest I would like to talk about are Robert Frost, Norman Rockwell, and Georgia O'Keefe. I found  relations to them as well. This is a great  site for getting started on genealogy.
We went over Moses 6 in Institute this week.
I feel like sharing 2 verses this time
Helaman 5:12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Here is the scripture for today from Scripture a day widget :
St Matthew Chapter 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
