A 9×12 canvas panel acrylic abstract painting. I tried to stick to a simple palette of colors. I like the end result. I think this is one of my favorite paintings. My advice for today is this always use the K.I.S.S (Keep it Super Simple) principle. The more complicated we make things the harder it will be to get through this life.
I decided to let my inner artist take over for this painting. Parts of the painting are more simplistic than I usually create but I like the end result. The painting is an 8×10 acrylic painting created on a canvas panel. I think in our Christian walk we sometimes overthink things. I feel that is why Jesus said to have faith like a little child, because children don’t overthink things they just have faith it will happen.
Once in a while I decide to redo one of my older drawing bags. This tine it is my big yellow flower. I painted over the pen and ink drawing using a light wash of acrylic paints. I love the way the drawing now pops from the old book page. It will good look good in a frame.
The wind is gone. The sails are down, The boat is idly sitting on the dark blue sea. The painting is a 9×12 acrylic painting rendered on watercolor paper. I could use this painting for a lot of metaphors but I won’t. The only thing I’m going to say is as I sit here on this rainy day is that God is our source of life and He alone is the wind that pushes our boat long. Lift up your life and feel the wind.
Yellow flower By the Tree is an acrylic painting rendered on a flat panel canvas. The background is done by dragging the paint across the canvas and then rendering the flower. Today I am reminded of an old saying, “All good things come to those who wait.” In other words God calls us to be patient. The problem is we don’t want to wait we want things in the here and now not in the days, weeks, months or years to come. It is hard to be patient but we must learn to have faith that God will in His time and move on.
I seem to be stuck on renderings of flowers lately. I like flowers because like Faces God does not create two exactly alike. We live in a world of variety so instead of using phases like, “I don’t see…,” embrace the world in all its glorious variety.
Painting number 5 in my series of abstract flowers. This one like the rest is done on a 8×10 flat panel canvas using acrylic paints. You know as I’m sitting here posting this God is reminding me how varied and unique each one of His creations are including us. We need to be careful, even as Christians, not to look upon others and try to put them in our mold. Not to try and see how they fit into our group but to see and know fully that no matter what they fit into God’s plan. They are unique and wonderful beings.
