This painting was completed over weeks and literally weeks with much layering.  Last night I finished the Collector Book that goes with it. It is a hardback book with pictures from the start to the finish of the painting as it is created.  Most collectors love the books as much as their paintings!

I guess we are all collectors in some way or another.  Some folks collect coins; some collect books; some collect stamps.... and we could list things forever.  What makes collecting so important?  What do we seem to value in collecting things? 

I am thankful for people who collect art. With out those collectors I would be doing something else. Terry says having your 'stuff' around you is a comforting thing.  As we age we begin to learn what is important to keep and what means the most to have around us.

I collect books and some art pieces from fellow artists.  I use to collect cups and saucers, but realized about three years ago there was no reason to be doing it any more.  Terry and I have downsized quite a bit and those collections have not place in our household anymore.

A good friend was trying to show off her new KINDLE. I do not think I could go there.  Maybe a few books on one, but to give away all the collections of books I have... I don't think so. There is something special about holding a book and turning the pages.   I especially feel that way about my bible... all of my bibles. There is one here next to me, one in the kitchen and one in the bedroom.  There are more...but those are the main ones.  

True comfort for me comes in reading His word.  We are collectors of His Word.  We are receivers of His Grace and Abundance.  His Comfort surrounds and uplifts our family.


“Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”- Matthew 19:14
