I did begin a painting today.  This is one of two sunflower pieces for a new collector in D.C.  You can watch it's progress.

I promised a lesson here or there... so this one is a writing lesson. Artists must have imagination and feeling in order to create... so choose one of these and really write about it.  You can send it to me to post if you are brave!

1.  You are an eraser on the top of a pencil.  The third grader that has you in his hand is taking a math test.  Tell me about your next ten minutes.... as he removes you from his pencil bag all the way until the test is finished.

2. You are a blade of grass... it is early morning and the sun is just up. Describe how you feel...and then describe more as you hear a loud noise nearby. It is a lawnmower starting up.... Tell about your awakening to the sunrise and the next thirty minutes after the noise starts. Describe your feelings.

3. Remember being a kid and waking up on Saturday morning. What were the smells and sounds you heard as you laid in bed.

Choose one and write away...but use your imagination... see with color, describe with feeling.

Getting in touch with your emotions and feelings is necessary to be an artist.  It is also necessary to be on that same praying field with God.  The more in depth you are in your prayers and feelings, the more connected you will be to Him. 

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.”- Colossians 3:15
