When I was on the missions trip with Grace Church serving the Livada Orphan Care ministry in Romania, the beauty of the country inspired me. I had the idea that when I got home to Arkansas I could paint these Romanian scenes and donate the paintings to Livada to raise money for orphan sponsorship.
The hilly landscape and villa type architecture paired with the warm sun and cool breezes made my experience in Romania seem dreamlike at times.
