This is a close up of the face:

And a close up of some of the brush strokes.

A little more brightness!

"Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth: break forth into joyous song and sing praises." Psalm 98:4

Child like wonder... Child like joy...can you remember being young and everything seemed to either fascinate you or scare you? Most children have a natural gladness with in their soul. We are born with out complicated feelings. Life seems to dictate our emotions after that. I am not sure how you teach a child how to maintain joy and the love of life and learning.

Then, is it possible to retrain ourselves to be joyful? God created each of us. Laughter is the best medicine around. It lowers blood pressure and reduces stress. Singing gives way to expression and helps with breathing and being strong. Praise is the sweetest as it is core of our needs... it is through praising that we grow in our joy.

Joy is being almost done with my work! Joy is almost being caught up! Yesterday I worked for 14 hours finishing up books on LULU for collectors and I painted and did massive bookwork. TODAY I WILL JOYFULLY CLEAN MY HOUSE!

The newest online edition of Western Art Collector is out. It will be on the news stands in about a week. If you are a collector, make sure you pick one up. It has a small article about art sales in Texas with my work and Debbie Lincoln's well as our full page ad...and a sold story in the back. Debbie and I have a show opening in Marble Falls in April.... JOY and ABUNDANCE!!!

Off to begin my wash!



“Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” 2 Peter 1:4

Congratulations on the Western Art Collector!
I'd rather be happy and smile! It's a much nicer way to look at things - the glass half full! Thank you for reminding us to see the world with child-like wonder.
