Desires II

I've been wanting to paint for days.. no weeks now. It's such a tangible desire that sometimes i can even smell the turp and see the colours being dragged across the canvas.
I can't wait for tomorrow when it will be all about the scene and the canvas and the elements and principles of design; when I will be so close to God that I could almost see His face.
That's what painting does for me; it brings me so close to God that His presence is a tangible thing. I can sense Him close by directing my eyes to the scene and pointing out what I need to do.
God is good.
