A Reason to Paint

On September 19, 2006, I went to New Life Island to paint the meaninful places - the cabins, pathways, and familiar spots - in an effort to help the camp raise some much needed funds. God blessed greatly, and in four days of painting, He allowed me to complete 3 paintings and begin 3 more.

I will continue to work on the unfinished paintings in my studio, and I intend on posting the progress here. Keep New Life Island in your prayers and when the time comes, please consider purchasing one of these paintings on behalf of the Island.

Ruth,

Thank you for your comments. Perhaps you know my husband, Ben Finch. He was a camper and worked at the island also until '97, I believe there is an NLI staff page on Facebook. Have fun reconnecting!
