I do not know why when I clicked SUBMIT this morning, it did not submit! Better late than never.
The Painting: THICK oil with the palette Knife. This is a favorite in my home, but now available for purchase. I will be sending it on to a gallery in the next few weeks...so if you like it, email me now.
The Thought: The trigger finger... Terry has been teaching me to shoot a gun over the past year, altho I have not pulled a trigger in about 7 months...I hope to shoot again and learn more. I did not like shooting at the range because of the noise level. It was deafening. I look forward to starting back up again in the country.
Triggers ... what are triggers in your life? What are those things that cause an immediate reaction in your temperament or demeanor? There is something for all of us, that triggers an emotional negative response. Have you ever thought about trying to learn to control those emotions and not allowing yourself to react so negatively? There are people in all of our lives that seem to "push the right buttons" to get our dander up and start us down a wound up tense stressful path. What if we could learn to go the opposite direction? Think how much LESS stress would be in your life and how much healthier you would be.
If you can, write down some of the things that do trigger you off... and pick one out to work on for awhile. See if you can desensitize yourself to that immediate negative response. God wants us to work on ourselves; He wants us to live our lives more peacefully, and we seem to do just the opposite.
I will be right there working on my "triggers" while you are working on yours.
