This is a first in a series for this wonderful new store/gallery in Marble Falls Texas.

John and Marnie are almost ready to open their new shop! This one will be shipping to them in the next few days. It is a HUGE painting filled with color, THICK buttery paint, ridges and texture. Follow along as we make our way through the PATINA Series! Yes, the store is Patina!

I am not accustomed to being up so early.... well, I have been my entire life, but since the flu and then the loss of heat etc.... Seven thirty was I have been in the studio working since five thirty, about 45 min ago.

Terry is back at work today. Hopefully he will continue working on the light issue in the evenings. It is not too bad living like this...I have to play my piano in daylight though. I usually play at night about eight, so I will have to adjust my schedule. In fact, they are coming today to tune my piano. YEAH!!

PAINTING is the passion today and I will be doing that! I have about four things already sketched out on my canvas. I sketch in diluted oil directly on the canvas.... so I have proportion and balance established in a rough from . It is from there the work evolves. DEEPER into the work as it develops.

Father God wants us to do that too....go deeper and evolve. His word is to be a lamp in our we can find a path in life. It is through study and sharing with others that we gain insight and comprehension to the deepest meanings in the word. With caution on interpretation, it becomes our task to read and pray as we take in His word. Hidden treasures lie within, ours to discover. Pray to keep your heart open and teachable. Keep your mind and body open to change as you read and study. Be diligent and feed your soul daily. I am not sure about memorization at my age...I have a hard time remembering so much, but the verses I memorized as a child seem locked in...but try memorizing a short verse and using it daily for several weeks until it becomes yours.



"He who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does." James 1:25
