The Painting:  A new mix of mediums and exploring new avenues.  This unique first piece pulls in textured fabric papers and layers of acrylic. OH, by the way... check out the Five Graces blog.  http://thefivegraces.blogspot.com or the website: http://thefivegraces.org

Debbie Lincoln is upping the game plan. She is planning on painting 28 horses in 28 days of February. There is another artist doing 100 portraits in 100 days.  Leave me out on that one.  I can't do horses with Debbie doing them in February, I will have to wait and save them... but this would be a good time to consider 28 days of IMPRESSIONS.  I have several folks that have sent me very very darling, cute pictures of their children doing things.  I am going to do Impressions of the Younger Generation.  Send me your ideas for me to paint... I have a blonde favorite playing soccer, I have a young man leading a horse with his sister on the horse, I have quite a few ...so send me your favorite.  I will paint small, so if you want to buy it, this is the time to get something you want painted...  email images to me.  I won't be able to paint them all, but you will see the best of what I can do! hey Deb, horses would be alot easier!!!!  Wanna trade?

The Thought: If you could choose anything for yourself right now, what would you choose?   What would be something that would serve you through out your life in every situation?

Most folks think about 'stuff'... or they think about a far away destination, or even a treasure box full of gold. It is actually all the 'stuff' that keeps us prisoners.  We are a slave to our 'stuff'.   Uncle George called today and he is cleaning out his years and years of career in the art field from his studio area.  He said it was time for he and Aunt Eola to spool down.  Terry laughed and told him we were already trying to do that.  Every time the kids come over they leave with another box of their stuff I have tucked away.  We also had a call that one of the Pace family cousins died. He was in his 80's and was found dead in his home, alone on New Years Day.  One first thought was he was blessed to go so quickly with out illness of cancer or heart problems.  He didn't have to worry about health 'stuff'.

So after reviewing all of this, I would like to choose God.  With God, I am free to be an expression of His gifts and love. If everyone lived with that thought, the world might be a more pleasant place to live.  Can you imagine a peaceful society world wide?  God is within each person and in God there is good.  We need to find that good not only in ourselves but in others around us.

By choosing God, we choose to experience life to it's fullest and with His peace to support us through our journey.

Blessings of Abundance.

"As Servants of God, live as free people."  1 Peter 2:16
