It’s always fascinating to hear how God works in the lives of artists and brings them out of bad situations so they can thrive.
My friend Gabriel Stockton was unhappy, wasn’t creating art, and felt he was at his rock bottom.
Suddenly, Gabriel began seeing the word “thrive” everywhere. Then God led him to the community of artists in the Created to Thrive group on Facebook. And Gabriel began to reflect God’s beauty with his watercolor art.
Now, as a “plein air” painter, Gabriel’s “office” is in a new place everyday as he sets up his easel wherever God leads him.
Award-winning art. Beautiful feedback from people who buy his paintings. Being an ambassador for art as an expression of God’s beauty. Now Gabriel is walking in God’s favor like never before.
In this episode of the Thriving Christian Artist podcast, Gabriel tells you his story of God’s grace moving in his life, and you can bet it can move in yours, too.
Join Gabriel in person at this year’s Gathering of Artisans, where he’ll be teaching about watercolor painting and how to listen for God's word in your art. He’s going to teach some fundamentals in the studio, then take everybody outside to paint! You won’t want to miss it.
