Mother’s Day

My wife loves being a mother. I've never heard her once wish that she could be away from her children. She embraced it wholeheartedly from the moment our first daughter was placed in her arms to this present moment where that same daughter is navigating her way as a sixteen year old.

An American Privilege

I voted this morning. And I've got to say that I felt ecstatic waiting in line, looking around at this diverse group of individuals who have shown up to give their opinion of who should lead this great country. And their opinion counts. Not only was I proud to cast my vote for the candidate of my choosing, but

History

It seems the older I get, the more passionate I am to pursue and absorb the history of this great country. I can attribute a great deal of this to the writings of David McCullough which have been like a front row seat to some of the events (both celebrated and unrenowned) that have shaped…

God's Story

“God’s Story”

In 2007, Christ Community Church in Franklin, Tennessee commissioned me to do a painting that would prove to be one of the most challenging, yet rewarding pieces that I had done to that day. Due to its high visibility in that church, Scotty Smith's teachings and the prints that have gone all over the country,…

Memorial Day

Remember

Happy Memorial Day from the Barn. I pray that every flag we see will stir us inside to remember what a wonderful country it is that we live in. I pray we will be thankful for every blessing that is ours to enjoy. I pray we will never forget that all of this didn't come…

Winter

Winter

I love the look of winter. Where I live it's very neutral, bare and, what some might call, dismal. I would rather refer to it as quietly beautiful. Even though we seldom see the extravagant beauty of a blanket of freshly fallen snow here in Tennessee, I am still comforted by the quiet elegance that…

See

A friend of mine recently came to the barn for the first time. He's a professional photographer. Actually, his name is Paul Moore. I love how sensitive Paul's eye is to beauty. Sometimes where you least expect it. He finds beauty in what might appear mundane - especially in nature. He can uncover exquisite color…

Fresh Start

Fresh Start

It's a new year. I always love that feeling. The tree is down. The ornaments are stored. The lights are unplugged for another year. Life seems calmer, cleaner and a bit less cluttered. It's a perfect time for a fresh start. A fresh start. Don't we all desire that? What lies behind us is littered…

David Arms Gallery

An exciting day

I am branching out, literally. I am opening my own gallery in the most unlikely of places - a barn. As you round the bend into the town of historic Leiper's Fork, the first building to greet you is now one of two places where my original art can be viewed (the other being Atlanta).…

Shelly's Arm

Shelly’s Arm

Friday night my wife and I received one of those dreaded calls saying our oldest daughter had fallen and broken her arm. Suddenly we're in the emergency room. The next day she's in surgery. The next night we're heading home with life looking a little differently than it had just days before. As my daughter…

Free Desktop Wallpaper

As I have my cup of coffee this morning, I'm thinking about how nice it feels to offer something on my website for free. No purchase necessary. Simply free. Having been asked to use my artwork as desktop wallpaper for some time now, I'm glad to say we've adapted six paintings into high-quality images that…
