I am not painting yet...but I am sketching left handed.  I sketched out the beginnings of a painting to start yesterday. It is cold outside and it will be cold in my back porch studio. It has windows but not heated and cooled with out help. Terry has several good heaters out there for me to work, but I have to turn them on and start up the heat.   

I had decided as I sketched today that the painting would be based on the upcoming Winter Solstice. The new painting is going to pull colors from an earthier palette and I am totally moved by the season and the colors outside my window on the pond. ( I have this feeling that soon you will see other artists painting horses and entitling their pieces "Winter Solstice" but know now, I determined this title as I sketched today while gazing outside at the colors in the sky and landscape.  By the upcoming Solstice this piece should be complete.

Mirada Gallery sold one of my large pieces last week, Desert Sun.   Here is the piece that sold this past week.  I was so excited to learn more about the new owner as I did a collector book for her of this painting. She is a gifted poet and I included some of her poetry in her book on the painting. This is the third painting this year they have sold of my work at Mirada. It stayed here in the states. The first one lives in Canada and the second one flew to Australia.  I cannot thank Gallery Manager Steve enough for his constant vigilance and work with me for joint marketing and providing what collectors want for their investment.  It helps with the wonderful recognition and representation of American Art Collector and Western Art Collector.   With the new agreement with Contemporary Fine Art International, there will be new things with Southwest Art.

This is the third Sunday in Advent.  It is still early and I am not sure if we are churching this morning or not. I have been ill most of the week and tentatively told Terry I thought it better if we did not.  Meanwhile Terry and will light our advent candles here together and maybe sing a song or two after we study and read together in the scriptures.  He asked me this question yesterday...and Dan if you are reading this... email me your first thought without looking.  Where is the connection for Jesus to be descended from the lineage of David?  

I asked Terry if it was a trick question.  He said no, because Jesus was not the blood of Joseph, only of Mary, so was it through Mary? Wikipedia answered with only information reflecting generalities.   Jesus was conceived through the Holy Spirit and was born of Mary. He had her blood and DNA...not Joseph's.  Bible Encyclopedia gave a better answer for me.

"Little is known of her personal history. Her genealogy is given in Luke 3 (see below). She was of the tribe of Judah and the lineage of David (Psalm 132:11; Luke 1:32). She was connected by marriage with Elisabeth, who was of the lineage of Aaron (Luke 1:36)."  Bible Encyclopedia

Well it gave for good discussions yesterday as we were only allowed to use what we remembered with out opening a bible. Personally I like the way Bible Encyclopedia answered it!

For my TINK... RING THOSE JINGLE BELLS....Oma and Bampa are listening.

Blessings my good friends, may the peace and joy of the season fill your hearts and lives with the light to carry to others still living in darkness.


"The gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures  regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David,  and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name’s sake. And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ." Romans 1:2-6
