In the midst of busy studio life I completed the layering on this commission painting. The size is 48 by 72 inches. (4 ft by 6 ft) I did a smaller one earlier this week to see how I liked working with the layers and glazing and it was definitely different. This particular piece does not have the music in the background, but has Lady Chatterly's Lover page by page. Personally I would have like a nude stretched across it, but this family has small children so it was best to be a horse theme.

If you really look at it you see the "HEART" or the heART with in. Combine the check of the large horse on the right and follow the heart shaped into neckline and shoulder of the running horse. This was not planned at all, it happened as I worked and I saw it as I was glazing it during the final layers. That is one of God's inputs I am often surprised with. I have written in this blog over and over that if I allow the Spirit to work things really happen on the canvas.

In your life daily God is always working behind the scenes even when you are missing him. He wants us to live our numbered days in His Light sharing it with those around us. He truly only wants us to be with out need. We seem to bring so much into our own lives and society around us flashes so much in front of us and our needs grow beyond into desires, desires that expand beyond what is necessary. To live life simply would release so much stress from us, but none of us ever seem to get to that point. Rugged schedules, appointments, late meals, missed moments of smiles and sharing tagged along with "hurry we will be late" and you have our lives. I think He wants a better life for each of us. We do not seem to want it though because we do not change unless life changes for us.

Busy Life gets a huge halt on it when there are things like a diagnosis of cancer, a heart attack, or a car accident. Then all the stuff you were rushing around doing is dropped. And for that small segment of time in your life your priorities change without a thought. God would want us to do that always. Sometimes I think he uses these things to get our attention. I know I have been batted in the head quite a few times in my life. Take time today to read all of Psalm 90. It truly sums this up the best.


“Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.” Psalm 90:2,4
