Be Transformed – Pink Chick in a Polka Dot Egg

Be Transformed (Romans 12:2) - Pink Chick in a Polka Dot Egg - Watercolor Illustration by mamasbrush

This little pink chick in the polka-dot egg was inspired by the April prompt list from Awesome Alice. Back in February, I created something from her list for every day of them month. Check out those posts here: Bunny love plus other prompts, What to do when you mess up (prompts), Chocolate and more, and Tweet Hearts and other Prompts. This month, I’m just using her list for inspiration and trying a handful. Whatever inspires me. This is one of them.

This illustration is inspired by prompt number 7: one cute chick and prompt 8: egg hunt.

My Creative Process

I had this idea in my head of the pink chick and a colored egg in the grass. First I drew the chick, then I started playing with the placement of the broken egg. Once I got the idea to put the chick part way in the egg, I decided to put the other half next to him. The yellow chick was an afterthought. I illustrated him looking down at the shell, as if he were wondering what happened to it. I ended up omitting the grass altogether.

As I looked at this cute little illustration alone in the bottom corner of my journal page, Romans 12:2 jumped into my head:

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

I love the idea that this cute pink chick has not conformed to the world, but has been transformed. A cute little reminder that God does transform us completely through the renewing of our mind!

**Another plug for Bible Memory… a great way to use God’s Word to renew our minds! (I get nothing for plugging them!)
