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.
This scene is one of many beautiful landscapes I was able to enjoy on our drive to serve for the day (in the kids camp, the gypsy village, and baby hospital). The hilly landscape in Târgu-Mureș and villa type architecture paired with the warm sun and cool breezes made my experience in Romania seem dreamlike at times. I experienced the beauty of God many times while in Romania.
