It all started with a dream.

Sara and Wayman Thurman had both recently retired, and they wanted to share their passion for Jesus with others. So, they began to create. Wayman built birdhouse, bird feeders and other useful creations. Sara painted. From watercolor to acrylic, she responded to a divine prompting to become an artist. Wayman now supports Sara by building the canvases for every piece. Sara’s inspiration comes from her time in nature and growing up on a ranch in southwest Texas, her time in daily worship, her love of Monet and the Impressionistic styles, and inspiration from the artists like DeAnn Hebert among others on Pinterest.
