The Painting:  Well, I continued painting in my new Gallery Series, Earth, Sea and Air. This is on fabulous aquaboard which leaves a wonderful textured feeling for the watercolor. This is so easy to slip into a frame and hang..or you could set it up on an easel as it is.  It is not watercolor paper. It is a heavy Masonite type board with the aqua surface to absorb the watercolors.

The Thought:  You know I am always talking on and off about the peacocks.  Here is a picture of the magical bird that lives two streets away from us. It actually lives next door to the house I grew up in.

 These were taken from a moving car with my iphone so they are not exactly sharp... but you can tell it is a peacock for sure.

In my research on Peacocks and God on the internet, I found a pattern in all the stories.  Seems like the peacock is a reminder from God of His artistic ability giving us this beautiful sign (I do agree it is better than the burning bush...) at times in our life that we need to snap back alive and feel HE IS HERE with us at that moment...wake up...see the beauty in this moment.   

I encounter this fellow usually once a day coming or going from picking Crystal up from school. I am always driving so I can't pull over and take iphone pictures as it runs faster than I can pull out the phone and click away.  Terry was driving on this afternoon and you can tell it was a gloomy day, cold and rainy...and things at home are not the best at this time. Yet, God put in our path one of His most colorful creations. Our day was blessed.

The actual colony of birds lives about three miles from here. How this bird ended up here I am not sure and why he/she is alone I do not know.  Maybe I need to read up on them.
So today I am sharing the "Peacock" with you...may you embrace His beauty today.

This is a peacock off the internet walking through green lush grass.

Here is the other LIGHT in our lives,

But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.”- Psalm 59:16
