What Image Comes to Mind When You Think of a Pillow? – Creative Tuesdays

When I began thinking about what to draw, the image that popped into my brain was obviously a pillow.

Pillow of Faith

Pillow of Faith – Tracy Campbell

After gazing at my pillow, are you scratching your head and asking, “What do the words faith and sheep have to do with a pillow?”

Well, I am a sheep who has put my faith in the Good Shepherd. He protects me and He comforts me … especially when life is hard.

So tonight, after I lay my weary head on a pillow, I’ll thank the Good Shepherd for the protection and comfort He provides. And I’ll be thankful for my comfy, feathery pillow.

 “I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”

John 10:11 Living Bible (TLB)

And here’s Faith. She’s all dolled up in a quilted, coat of faith and wearing a matching hat to boot.

  1. Your pillow makes perfect sense to me. How cool to know we have someone watching over and protecting us at our most vulnerable time.

  2. Tracy,
    Wonderful way to show your faith! A great way to be tucked into bed each night. I can see them on kids’ beds, babies’ cribs, and center spot in master bedrooms adored with multiple throw pillows. Go for it!

    I have a pillow design of my own I’ve asked my mom to help me with. I want to recycle some embroidered pieces from old dresser scarves that are tattered and worn. I want them to cut and added to throw pillows or new dresser scarf backgrounds. Get it?

    • Thanks for your encouragement, Linda. I’ll need an art agent to make that happen. Your throw pillows or dresser scarves are wonderful ideas. You’ll have to post them when they’re done! 🙂

    • Hi Janis, I’ll get right on that. LOL. I used to quilt many years ago. But quilts play a huge part in designing art. Yes, the verse ties in nicely with the sheep. Thanks. 🙂

  3. Tracy–yes, of course I got the sheep and faith. A lovely country like feel to it. Love all your little details…especially the cross stitching and various stitches. Great colour too. Cute that you focused on a pillow and told a story with it. I like that. Thank you so much for playing along for another theme and your lovely comments left on mine and the other artist’s sites too. 🙂

    • Hi Michael, country is my favorite style. I also decorate my home “country style”. I used to cross-stitch and quilt, but as I get older there isn’t enough time to do it all. I hope the next challenge isn’t too hard! Yikes. 🙂

  4. Tracy, I can picture that as a real pillow! You probably know there are sites where you can have your illustrations printed on fabric.!
    I love that it’s a God-honoring pillow 🙂
