"Amazement seized all of them, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying,'We have seen strange things today.'" Luke 5:26

A Painting A Day: Inspired by the "Bathed in Light" © 2009, I began a journey with undercoats of Raw Sienna and Cobalt Blues. The next layer was in golds and yellow until I had a consistency built up to the edgy point of carving. Working on the square canvas leads to either many horses or just one. You can see where it ended up. Adding at least 12 more layers of color, this painting is quite thick. It gets to the point I am carving in paint and I love it!

When Buying Art Work off the Internet: There are hundreds of fabulous artists selling their work on the internet. While it is always good to do your homework and check out their experience and their number of years painting, it should NEVER dictate if you should buy the work. If you are buying strictly for investment, then it is important to find out as much as you can about the artist. When buying for the home your emotions play the largest part in purchasing a painting. If a painting calls to you, where the artist comes from, or the number of years they have painted is NOT important. You buy art that you love to be apart of your home to enrich your life.

My Thoughts for the Day:

Does age matter? I guess it might in some things like experience needed to perform certain jobs...but does it matter as you get up in the morning?

Remember when school was out for the summer... and you packed up your desk in a paper bag and took it home? Then in the morning when you woke up the first delicious thought was ... IT IS SUMMER! NO MORE SCHOOL.

What would it be like to wake tomorrow morning and feel that unburdened? I am willing to try it if you are. Young at heart is meeting the world each morning welcoming the experiences of the day to come with childlike wonder of the great gifts you will find ahead. New opportunities to explore; new people to meet; a child like innocence waiting to burst forth as you jump out of bed.

Be cheerful as you face new challenges today. Find surprise in something and smile. God has tucked something special away just for you today.... can you guess what it is?

I wish you a song in your heart to be blessed to be young at heart.

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12
