This one almost made me cry.  I took off in one direction determined to paint something a certain way...sort of like that nude in 2006 that turned into the first running group of ponies... and as I finished this painting I walked away from it disgusted and not liking what was there.  I returned in the morning to the easel and began pulling the paint and it was startling to see the brilliance on the far left corner fading into the vivid reds on the left bottom... and then how magically the wood appeared behind on the top center and right top... and green on the lower right... and then the horses began to appear. There are 13 to be counted on the painting and some faintly imaging behind them in the distance.

I knew when I shot the photos of it I would love it or hate it... and as I looked at it on the screen it was one of those... "I Painted This?" moments.  Like how? How did those colors fall just in the right places?  It was another prior painting pulled into motion.  So that was the birth of the Falling into Winter Herd above.  I just finished it yesterday morning.  I am going to have prints available on FAA... you can click here to see them.

God seems to have a way of making something special out of things we think we have literally turned upsidedown.  When things seem irreversible and unsolvable, that is when He does the best work in our lives. (And in my paintings)

Believe today that He is working behind the scenes to make it all come together. Not always the way we expect it. Not always with what we view the best ending. Not always in what we determine to be a happy ending...but most assuredly if we believe we will endure, grow and find peace in what we have in our lives.   Everything we need is here for us.

Abundance is yours.
 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.”- Isaiah 55:6
