Progression on the White StallionHere you can watch as I lay up this next painting. I had dreams of red and dark red and black and a white horse... so I began laying up by layers of acrylic first and then pulling oils across it. This is the beginning of the Abstract Horse Painting, White Stallion.

Yesterday I wrote about personal spirituality. I am going to continue on this one more day. The word Spirit comes from the Latin word SPIRITUS meaning breath. When you think of 'spirit' is is not of flesh or material body...but of a mental, intellectual or emotional power. Often people exchange the word spirit and soul as they both are in contrast to the physical body.
My visualization of spirituality is the breath of God that has given me life. Concentrate as you breath in slowly and let the air out slowly. God is filling you with His breath of life. You are filled with the Spirit. The power of the breath is the power of His Spirit.
This opens the way for you to be a spiritual being and a channel for His work. Prayer is the path that opens up the understanding of God's light and love. Through prayer/conversation with Him your faith deepens as well as your ability to share this Spirit with others.
As a spiritual being you are aligning your thoughts and and feelings with God and you become open to share with others this awareness of the Spirit. This is essential when I paint and create. I literally cannot have a complete painting without His Spirit being woven into the brushstrokes. The more I paint, the more grateful I am of His ever constant presence in my creativity. He inspires, He motivates, He blesses, He gives, He loves and He breathes into my life and work His Spirit and grace.
My prayer for you my friend is to find this same comfort and direction in your life. Breathe....
"Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving." Colossians 4:2
