Horse 73 Bad Moon Arising   8 x 8 Oil on Board

Most of my small horse paintings have sold right away. A few of them get shuffled back to the easel and are restructured and repainted.  Usually those are the absolute best as they have building blocks of creativity over the surface making it all come together.   This is one of those.

I was resurfacing the top with blues, mauves and saw a bit of brown pink coming through making a greenish tint with the blues... and from that was immediately born the Moon.  Then placing the painted ponies on the surface...behind them.  We have the Bad Moon Arising.  Love playing on my guitar. Now it is in a painting. Change is neither good nor bad... change is something that fills every moment of our lives.  It is how we react to it that counts.

Surprisingly enough many of us anticipate what our lives will be like in the future. Will things stay the same? Not really. Every day is filled with change. Some change is major, some change is small. We can waste a lot of time worrying about what may happen in the days ahead.  The best choice is to remain calm and confident knowing God is present and with his presence comes good. Can you embrace change? Can you welcome it into your life each day? If you can you will find new opportunities to experience good things.

"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is not variation or shadow to change us." James 1:17

Wishing you positive change in your day.
