Paintings for Livada: Nana’s Romania

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.

Nana used to work with Livada in Romania and helped host the trip. When I told Nana about the painting series and what I hoped to achieve, she was delighted to give me a picture and request a painting for her home.

I took the painting to Nana’s house, and although the picture she gave me to paint from was on an overcast day, she really wanted it to appear more sunny and bright.

Paintings for Livada: Romania Hillside View

There were so many beautiful landscapes. There were times when we were driving from the day camp to the next place we were going to serve and I would just look out the window and gasp. The place where we were in Romania (Târgu Mureș) was hilly and full of these breathtaking countryside views.

Our group went to the restaurant called Restaurant Pestisorul de Aur. We explored the site and found beautiful scenery and even some wildlife. We also took a group picture.

The hilly landscape and villa type architecture paired with the warm sun and cool breezes made my experience in Romania seem dreamlike at times.
