A Painting a Day ~ A Dozen Red Roses ~ Flower Oil Painting by Laurie Pace

No. 187 A Dozen Red Roses
18 x 27 inches
Oil on Canvas

A Painting A Day: This painting uniquely addresses bold contrast colors and spaces. The heart responds to the beauty of traditional love with red roses as the central theme. Boldly stated contrasts of red and green, blue and orange, and violet and yellow create an interwoven pattern that satisfies the visual palette. The thick paint is pulled in layers with a palette knife and the final painting supports several coats of pre-varnish.

"If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you." James 1:5

In past blogs I have written about GPS...God's Protective Service. I read somewhere it was also "God's Powerful Spirit". Both are good. Both are meaningful that God is with you as you journey ahead through unfamiliar territory in your life. When decisions need to be made, and your heart and head are full of questions and "what shall I do?" ...that is when you seek assurance that you are making the right choices. You are taking the correct path.

For me this is the MOST difficult. I pray and pray and listen and listen. Often I have done what I though God was telling me... and I end up somewhere I never even thought about. I still question if I am hearing Him or hearing my own heart guided by my human mindset.

Practice is what I continue with. Practice to listen and pray and listen some more. GPS is on 24/7. This day begins and lays before us...ask Him to lead the way for you today.

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace.” Acts 20:24
