My 15 Minutes of Fame

Hi there. Just wanted to share some exciting news with you all today... I've been published!

Well, sort of.

An interview I did a while back for the blog, "My Creative Peace," was published in a collection of artists' interviews by the blog's author, Robin Norgren, and the book is now available on Kindle. I'm planning on downloading it myself because I'd like to see what the other artists had to say in their interviews, and also because - hey - I'm in it!
If you shop through the link above, I'll earn a little something (supposedly) as an Amazon Associate, and I thank you.
Hope you're having a lovely week!


I Need Thee Every Hour

Good morning.

Last night I put the finishing touches on the latest in my collaged hymn series, and I thought I'd share it with you today.... Here it is:

"I Need Thee Every Hour"
by Beth Stone
Digital, watercolor, acrylic ink, and ephemera collage on Arches 140lb CP 100% Cotton Rag

This is Josh's favorite hymn, and the original is a late birthday gift for him.
Have you heard this hymn before? I'll share the lyrics with you in case you haven't:

"I Need Thee Every Hour"
Lyrics by Annie S. Hawks
Music by Robert Lowry

I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
no tender voice like thine can peace afford.
I need thee, O I need thee;
every hour I need thee;
O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.

 I need thee every hour; stay thou nearby;
temptations lose their power when thou art nigh.

I need thee every hour, in joy or pain;
come quickly and abide, or life is vain.

I need thee every hour; teach me thy will;
and thy rich promises in me fulfill.

I need thee every hour, most Holy One;
O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son.

Here's a nice version of the song by Fernando Ortega:

If you're interested in purchasing prints or greeting cards featuring this collage, I now have them available in my Etsy shop. I will also be making necklaces featuring this piece in the near future which will also be available - I'll let you know when they're ready.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a lovely week.
