I have fought it long enough and decided to start putting small paintings up for sale. Usually by now I have more accomplished and off to Galleries but with the Artist of Texas show and all our family things this fall, I am behind.  It is good for you though to pick up some small pieces at good prices.  I am going to continue doing horses but want to work larger again. The small ones lack the loose freedom I have with the palette knife. 

 I painted this afternoon and finished two more small ones you will see over the next few days. It is growing dreary with rain outside and is suppose to be cooler this weekend.  I love this weather! 
Terry finished painting our bedroom yesterday and next step will be drapes to finish it up.  He has really worked hard on all the painting.  After the drapes are up I can take pictures.


Last night we went to a Veteran's Day Banquet honoring Veterans from World War II. This year they honored C. L. Coe of Mt Vernon. He is a 92 year old survivor of the Battle of the Bulge. Good food, good fun and good friends.
What are the important things in your life? Do you keep your focus and your priorities straight?  Success is not measured by  money.  True wealth lies only with the power of God.  The economy will rise and fall; times change, nations change and with it history is written. Over the past 2000 years the faith of our fathers has not changed.  God is ever constant and unchanging. If you can focus on Him, your life will stay in perspective.  We seem to tense up and get angry as things become uncertain.  That is when we need to redirect in prayer to Him.  From that will comes our reassurance and we will be filled with the strength we need.  

God has many possibilities waiting for us. Are you ready?

"Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

Post note: Our Doctor, we call him Doctor Steve aka Dr Paul Stephen Worrell, always has a quick check method that applies to the above.  When you are hurting somewhere he will grab your hand and apply pressure to a pressure point causing you great pain. When that pain hits you tense up and your shoulders draw in and your face tightens.  He laughs and presses harder and says "BREATHE"  As you refocus and take  a deep breath and let it out slowly, your shoulders fall and relax, your face softens and suddenly where he was pressing does not hurt any more, nor does the original compliant.   Seems like when things are tense and we are hurting we pull inside of ourselves drawing up tightly into a ball.  The true answer is in relaxing and giving up.  Giving it up to God.

DR Steve is on Twitter now!   Dr_Worrell  catch some of his tidbits.

I think a smattering of small paintings is always a good idea. We have a home with a lot of windows and limited wall space. I think this Appaloosa is magnificent. He is coming right off the canvas with all that energy. Even though you like your big palette paintings, you still have he touch here.

Yes, great reflection. When we "Get angry", we really need to "Get God"!
