Iris to Horse . Palette . Power of Creating . God's Amazing Power . Laurie Pace

I have part of the verse below, but if you read Proverbs 8:22-31 you will follow me a bit better. The entire scripture was part of our morning study. As I read the passage I immediately felt the power of God in his creation of the world.  Commanding and direct, descriptive and complete; the power of the Lord, the power used in creating the world and man.  Yes, in Proverbs, not Genesis. 

An artist reaches deep to put together ideas, sketches, palette color choices, and much more. Each painting has immeasurable 'ingredients' and depth that may not be visually apparent but it will be felt in the visual connection to the painting. While I hold very little power over anyone or anything, I do know the canvas is my connection to many people. In each painting is part of God and this gift and part of me.

While I cannot be upstairs working yet, (the rehab continues),  I have been putting together sketches and ideas for coming pieces.  I love the freedom of Pages 53 and know I will grow stronger the more I work with it.  Each task we take on in life provides us with the opportunity to learn and grow. Once learned we can share that knowledge with others.  I have some really precious pieces for the week of Valentines Day and cannot wait for February to arrive. The sketch above contains the palette of a photo I took over ten years ago.  These are 'me' colors. 

Meanwhile I am working on my February Newsletter with some new things to share.  I am so grateful for all of you and your constant support and emails. Life changes are never easy, but having good friends help you over the bumps encountered.
