"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.



Friends, there are at least 5 paintings under this. I have been struggling to paint anything I liked or was comfortable with or felt right, for several days. I had a specific place for a large painting on my screened porch...it just would not come. So I painted the whole damn thing black, let it dry to the touch at least and hung it in the place I wanted, and I just looked at it...and saw this. It's so very different for me, but I'm going with it. I'm even liking it. Close up you can see bits and pieces of color in the black from all the previous paintings. Kinda cool.

This gave me the good tears…and only the very best things do.
I say keep it.
This stirred my soul.
