The Painting: The collector lives here in Dallas. She came by the studio with paint swatches and we spent an hour or more visiting. I felt like I had a good grasp on the color palette for her room and her personality as well. Once I started working on it, I stayed up most of the night painting so I am rather sleepy this morning. This was a two day painting of many hours. Holbein Duo Oils of course and my signature style.
The Thought: My rose colored glasses keep me in a state of denial I am sure. Denial of reality that surrounds us in life. Sometimes I tell Terry those rose colored glasses were a gift from God.
I believe we are all blesssed with unlimited good. There are seeds with in each of us waiting to be nurtured, watered and grown. We are each abundantly blessed with a garden to grow and from our garden we feed others from our soul with our gifts.
By wearing my rose colored glasses I try not to concentrate on the ugliness of human nature. I prefer to honor the good in every one and celebrate the gifts they possess and bring to the world. All good comes from God through all people and all circumstances. Divine ideas and thoughts are buried in each of us. Time to stop, slow down and figure out what you have. Pull a few weeds while you are doing it and polish off those rose colored glasses.
You are after all, a child of God and blessed with unlimited good.
