 "When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. "
John 16:13

The Movement

The year was 2005
This was one of my first time off the reservation finding the horse in the movement of the paint.  Yep, studio in Justin, Texas. I loved the home we lived in there. Plenty of room and large ones too... on two acres with a creek on the back. This is where I put down my brushes and Impressionism and took up a knife with my buttery oil paints.

Again you see lots of red with orange and yellow. Contrast built with accents of blue and green and purple. Opposites on the color wheel.    It was purchased by a collector who started buying my work in 2003.  She lived in Washington DC near a river which had tons of artifacts from different wars on her property.  She had a cool home we got to visit in 2006 on my way to New York for a Gallery opening.  Sadly she died about 10 years ago and I have missed her ever since. Her son kept most of the collection, but two pieces appeared on Ebay. Not sure where they are today. Galleries began contacting me in 2007 to sell my work... and I have not looked back since then.  God has been amazing in this journey. 

Hope you have a great week ahead. Mondays are always a challenge! 

He will guide you... follow him.
