Preacher’s Daughter Collection

These are the original pages from a 1951 book, not photocopies. The art is original, sketched in ink and charcoal directly over the hymn. The wood plaque is stained and a sealer is applied to the art and plaque. Each plaque is approximately 8 3/4" x 11 1/2". A sawtooth hanger is attached to the back.
The artwork is dated 2018. I found a stack of sketches I had misplaced, and over the past several days I stained the plaques and attached the art to them. 

It didn't take me long to come up with a title for this collection, Preacher's Daughter. I was born a preacher's daughter. I don't know how soon, but I'm sure Mama and Daddy took me to church not many days after I was born. As far back as I can remember, going to church was part of my life.

Each time I sketch a church on a page, I think back to the old country churches we visited when I was a little girl. Daddy was a country preacher, pastored several churches during his lifetime, and held many revivals in the rural areas of middle and east Tennessee where we lived. He played the guitar and he and Mama sang together. They loved the Lord and wanted others to know of His goodness, mercy, and love.

I still attend a little country church. It's where my husband I were married nearly thirty-six years ago. It's where our children grew up hearing the preached Word and learning more and more about Jesus. And now, with our little granddaughter, a third generation of our family will sing hymns and learn about God's love at that little country church.

Most of the pages used for this collection are from the actual song books we sang from in that church. When the decades of use have frayed the covers and caused the spines to set the pages free, the books have been set aside and replaced with new ones. That's when I get them and the pages are born again, sharing their message with folks who want to give them a home.

Take care and God bless,
(the preacher's daughter)
