IA Weekly Challenge: Sacred

What is sacred?  For my Godmother sacred is what she shows the world; her relationship with  her God.

Here's the cane that started it all!

Two years ago my Godmother asked me to paint her cane to take on a cruise.  She wanted it covered with symbols of her Christian faith.  I was delighted to be asked to make something special for her and poured my heart into making it as good as I could.

And this is what I ended up with!


Now I paint all my canes with the same intense desire to do my very best.

If you'd like a hand painted cane made just for you or your loved one, then contact me, or visit my shop, Leaning on the Promises

That is so sweet. I've been working on a walking stick for several years. I might have to pull it out & finish now! Your can is lovely.

Love the sentiment and love this sacred walking stick. Intense desire is what keeps true artists going, I think.
