Paintings for Livada: Romania Hillside View

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.

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.

Paintings for Livada: Hay Day

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.

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.

Paintings for Livada: Romania Hillside

Târgu-Mureș was hilly, which made for excellent scenic views. I connected specifically with these scenes (the houses and trees on the hills with the mountains behind them) as pastoral scenes (minus the lamb/goat). These are such peaceful scenes for me because the houses represent people’s lives. I like the idea that there are people that live on the hillside in the country – that they wake up every day to the big sky (possibilities), mountains (stability), and trees (life/growth/change). Just looking out of the car window, I experienced the beauty of God many times while in Romania.
