Sunday Sketches - Dedicated to Prayer

Hi everyone..

I made some bookmarks concerning the happenings in Libya. Please, take a look.

By clicking the FIVE and the colored version of the Soldier, you will be taken to my shop where you can purchase these.

I believe we are all aware of what is happening right now in Libya. If not, please look at the news, BBC has a lot of information. 

These are bookmarks or prayer cards that measure 2 x 7.5 inches. 
I painted the soldier. (watercolor)
The bookmarks are printed on 110lb acid free card paper. 
The back side is black lined so that you can add your own specific prayer items. 
There is a verse on the front side that I believe speaks for itself. 

I believe that if there is to be peace, it is achievable most by these people to get saved and know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Change of a heart of men like these will strike everyone, their testimony would surely have value! I believe that God doesn't want war, but will act according to His will in these things also. He is on the Throne after all. 
I believe that He wants all people to come to know the truth, and among these I am sure it's the leaders, and the soldiers, just as the citizens. 

Lets pray together! You see, it is not only up to those who decided to move and act, it is also up to us. I believe God wants us to pray. We ought to love people. And if we love God, we should think of those who are in war. Those who are its victims and also those who are behind it. 

Have a good and a blessed day everyone. And lets unite in prayers. (!)


  1. A wonderful sketch, a prayer for peace, and a desire for the unsaved to be saved makes a powerful post on this Sunday.

  2. Beautiful sketch and thoughts! I will join you in prayer. xoxo

  3. Very nicely done. I will also join you in prayer for the people of that country.

  4. Great idea for a bookmark, let's hope the Libyans find peace.

  5. Really nice watercolor! Good idea for the bookmark, there too. I agree, wishing the people of libya peace...have a great night!

  6. These are lovely, Lybia too is in our prayers - what a crazy world - one country doing everything they can to save there people, another spending as much effort to eradicate their own. May their be peace.

  7. This is a beautiful sketch and fantastic painting. It is a shame what is happening over there. I am wishing for peace to come there soon.

  8. Beautiful work, hoping for peace too!

Art, Language and Teaching Opportunities

Watercolors, Illustrations, ACEOs, lots of Czech and English language, lots of energy at home and major lack of sleep. How can all of that exist together! This has been one serious week!


I continued The Girl and her Cat series and got as far as 5 illustrations. (showing the 5th one here. For the other ones, check out this post) After that, I needed a little break, but I will get back to it and create more pieces.

I took one morning to get back to one of my favorite styles, which is pure line art, and drew a Spring-inspired portrait! And I really do love this! 

(I love this style so much that I actually created a whole coloring book last year and if you like coloring and you are a mother or have a mother or a mother friend, this book is for you! It also has a section of encouraging Bible verses. It's called Treasure of the Heart and you should check it out!) ;)

Then yesterday I thought, wow, I haven't painted any ACEOs in a really long time! And unlike the usual theme which wou…

How to be a Good Artist when you're completely Eclectic

I am an artist. I love art. I love all the different styles, techniques, mediums. They inspire me, they challenge me, they grow me. But many times I was told that I can't do all of it if I want to be a good artist. 
That really confused me. I wanted to be a good artist, but I didn't want to give up everything that I love to do, and only pick one niche. Like, which one is it going to be? Am I going to focus only on portraits? Or only on cartoons? Or fashion designs? I love painting with watercolors too! Oh and don't get me started on realistic line art! Oh, and did you know there was this cool technique called Zentangle? I have to try that out too! Oh, guess what - I really love doing that too! Oh gosh... I am completely all over the place. This can't be good for my portfolio! How will I attract viewers? And more importantly, how will I keep them coming back, if the next time they come, they will see something completely different than what they "signed up" for…

FUN LITTLE ART - the New Art Channel with Drawing videos for Kids!

Hi everyone!

The summer passed and fall is here. And I have an announcement! I just recently released my new art channel called "Fun Little Art" that is dedicated to drawing videos for children. If you have kids around you who love to draw, share these with them! I'm sure they will enjoy them and maybe even learn ;)

I have had my main "Kate Holloman" channel for years. Even though my channel is primarily about art, it became popular because of a video of my husband and then 8mo son (it's pretty cute), but it seems like all the people that watch that video and subscribe to my channel don't really have any expectation to see art videos so those aren't watched as much. What a bummer! So I decided that it might be worth a try to have a channel that is clearly only about one thing and people won't be confused. And since I am a mom of two kids, drawing for them is something I do a lot anyway. Then I saw some other channels that were doi…
