The Painting: This is an oldie from the external harddrive. I do not have a painting that is new! I do have five, make that six drawn off on canvas ready to paint! Stay tuned for new and approved.
The Thought: Typical conversations in our family might revolve around who is going to do what. What is your most UNFAVORITE thing to do around the house? Mine is taking out the trash. I love washing dishes or cleaning bathrooms. Each of us has our likes and dislikes. Each of us is made differently. The daughter still at home does not like doing dishes or homework. She avoids both like the plague. Our older daughter loves to bake, but 10 years ago she couldn't operate the stove. Looking out on a broader approach...not only are our daughters unique, but so are we.
While our God is the one and ONLY GOD. YOU are the one and only YOU. Some of you are creative. Some of you like to cook. Some can't stand being in the kitchen and can't draw a straight line, but they can sing with the angels. Each of us has unique talents and skills to share.
When I think of art and try to define it, what is art? Art that I do can be on canvas or paper. Another art is the preparation of a meal for family. Go even further to the plates and bowls you eat out of; sculptor's hands used clay to make those. Other hands make art as they play the piano, the guitar, the violin; old hands hold the young hands of a child quieting them when they are afraid.
Creativity is born in all of us. We are each unique. Give of those creative gifts to the world.
"Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from God, so that we may understand the gifts bestowed on us by God." 1 Corinthians 2:12
