SANDRA MAE WEIR ART - WHERE ART AND FAITH MEET - has a few broad missions with an underlying themes. That the art bring comfort to those hurting and an awaking to the ones falling asleep and to advance the understanding that life is more than what we see with our eyes. Also art need not be bizarre and ugly to elicit a powerful response. The themes and expressions come from a place deep within, a message of remembrance. Sandra understands she has no mastery of any aspects of the technique in painting. To compete with the rich artistic heritage of 2000 years of accumulated Art is of no interest to Sandra. She knows she is not a Master painter however each year she invests in new training and in learning new skills to strengthen her ability to express most perfectly what is in her heart. Her art is created with a remembering of the romanticism art movement that touched upon a universal and timeless themes. Sandra's offerings are for anyone who will have eyes to see, a platform for pondering hearts - a honest and frank dialog not spoken in words but with each painting that says beauty, truth, hope, kindness and faith are of real worth in our world today.
“I am invested whole heartedly in contributing my voice to the sound of eternity”

Artist motivation "Someday I will put my brush down though today another painting is developing for I am not finished depicting what comes up from my heart to share."
Psalm 45 1: My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.2Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee forever.3Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.4And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.5Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.6Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.7Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.8All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.9Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.10Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;11So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.12And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall entreat thy favour.13The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.14She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.15With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.16Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.7I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
