The PaintingThis is another new piece in my Earth, Sea and Wind Gallery Series 2010.  Using one of my signature styles on canvas, you have the blended underlays and overlays with runs and layering of Oil paints on top of those layers.  Tender emotions and solid play of colors create an world of intimacy.
The Thought: A long time ago I wrote a poem about Intimacy. Unfortunately I saved it in publisher on my PC and I cannot open it on the MAC.   I am hoping Stacey can open it and I can post it later this week.  

There is an intimacy that exists between friends and lovers, but the truest purest intimacy is between you and God. The personal relationship you have with Him is only as close as you allow it to be; He is after a strong relationship. 

I believe as humans, we tend to pull away from this intimacy because it is so close and we don't want Him to know all the ugliness inside of us.  The unworthy part wants to hide from  Him.   The play on the word is "in To Me See".  God can see into you and through out you and He knows everything there is to know about you.  Before you can put your emotions and thoughts to words to Him, He has known them forever.  He has been waiting for you to know them, acknowledge them and accept them.

"In To Me See"... Love, Joy, Grace, all Knowing, All Seeing, the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, the Provider, The Counselor, The Creator, The Almighty, The Giving, The King, The Way, The Truth, The Savior, The Alpha, The Omega, The Bread of Life, The Light of the World, The Comforter, The Good Shepherd, Allah, ... I could list probably 200 names that work for God that I can come up with... and I am sure there are thousands.  What do you "see" in Him?

Stacey emailed me back the poem, so here it is:
The Circle of Intimacy

(“in to me see”)

We individually seek acceptance

Longing for moments filled with expressions of love and tenderness.

This is a special time for closeness and life sharing,

Yet we all realize the closer we become

The more vulnerable we become

With a greater risk of exposure and pain.

Our souls take to life in a dance

Connected through the threads of time

Intricately weaving the beautiful colors of each of our souls

In gentle movements

To implicate a union of harmonious spirits.

A circle of friends

To share this journey

Is  a great gift of intimacy.

Growing old and walking side by side

Facing the world together

We are stronger.

We have each other

And are never alone against the wall

Waiting for someone to ask us to dance.

I wish you today a new day to find the Intimacy you seek...God is Good, All the Time, God is Good.

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”- Matthew 5:43-45

This painting is so beautiful! Love the drip effect. The expression on the horses faces look as if they are two close friends sharing a secret.

Your post and the beautiful poem fit the image perfectly. Thank you for sharing it!
