The Painting:  Deep and Rich are the two main adjectives for this piece. I will probably do a similar follow up piece and I loved moving the paint around on the canvas.

The Thought:  Someone once ask me how long it took to complete a particular painting.  My reply was one shared with me by fellow artist Diane Whitehead.... my reply was simply, "It took 57 years."  That is how old I am, and truly that is how long it took to do this particular painting.  Diane was correct as it takes every experience in our lives to get where we are at this second. 

So as the year 2009 comes to a close this evening, I look back at a year of so many blessings I cannot count them.  Change alone is a blessing if you look at it that way.  Change is never good nor bad, it is simply change. How we choose to react to change determines the outcome of our lives.  The friends and acquaintances we meet along the way are there for a season or a reason.  Some we are blessed to have in our lives for longer periods, and others God places there only for a season or two.

We are all works in progress. Don't be so hard on yourself and your life.  Let the sunshine in; let God's peace fill your days in 2010. Stop trying so hard, live for this day... today.  Tomorrow will take care of itself and God has it already planned. After all, tomorrow is the first day of 2010 and the first day of the rest of your life.

Stay safe tonight and give thanks for the year 2009.

“This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”- Isaiah 43:16, 18-19
