'On a Reach' 2nd in a Series Sailboat Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

'On a Reach'

18 x 24 inches
Oil on Canvas

Contact me to commission a painting: Laurie

The Painting:  This is very similar to an early painting that is in a show in NY.  It is a commission piece that will live on the east coast.  I have three of these in the Summer Storm Series.

The Thought:   I have written about imitation being flattering but not good,  as we should individually seek our inner creativity and soul.  What I didn't cover was the thought that often the devil is in the business of imitating God.  His goal of course is to  be like God through deception to us.  Disguises can hide some scary people from us and we often allow them into our lives deceived by their false fronts and taken into their deception.  

Have you read the Chronicles of Narnia?  It was in one of the stories that a donkey was persuaded to wear a lion's skin to pretend to be someone he was not. The donkey was rather simpleminded and easily controlled into doing this.  The ape behind the plot was the "bad guy"; he was later exposed by the true King of Narnia, the Lion Aslan.

Always listen and think before acting. Pray for guidance and discernment.  God will provide.

"Beware of false prophets in sheeps's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves."  Matthew 7:15
"Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, "I am the Christ," and will deceive many." Matthew 24:4-5
