Rain!

I love the rain. It creates a sense of newness; like everything is washed clean. The trees look greener, the sky a little clearer,it's wonderful.

Reminds me of what Christ did for me on Calvary.

Was not happy today as I attempted to paint at the Wild fowl Trust which is a place for endangered species of fowl, birds and fishes. There is a really beautiful pond with lily pads and reflections.... so classic. Reminded me of the pictures that I lust over of Monet's garden
I had just set up when the heavens opened and poured out its liquid blessings on all. I was Soaked right through trying to protect the easel and canvas and paints from the deluge.

My husband, who was helping me hold the umbrella said that God wanted me to spend more time looking first.
In everything give thanks.
Lord, thank you for the rain and the painting I will get to complete soon.

Painting


Been Painting.

On Sunday I went out to catch the sunrise. It was beautiful-and i'm not a sunrise kind of girl.
Anyway I was painting near Cumana. This is what the view looked like. Can you see my husband's guitar in the background? Imagine looking out at that with music playing...

Finding Myself

Art and I were on a break. We were separated from each other for more than a year. No paints no composing, nothing. My easel was on the corridor collecting cobwebs and dust mites. My paints started to dry out in the tube. I was passing them by as if I had no knowledge of their existence. It was a miserable time for both of us.
I was going through a period of discouragement and disillusionment and of course dissatisfaction.I didn't like the direction my work was going in; the usual artist angst about work not being sold...and on and on...
To cut a long story short I was away. I finally came back to it and it was as if I had finally found part of me again. I have been going out and painting almost everyday. It's beautiful and fulfilling.
