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.
We drove everywhere from the group house to the places and people we would serve for the day. As we were driving, I kept holding my camera against the car window and snapping pictures along the road side.
I got so many great shots, but this old Romanian woman with a cane really stood out to me.
