Do you know yourself ?

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ― Aristotle

The eyes are the path to the soul... but I am not saying wolves have souls... but the eyes contain the living part of the animal.  It is the eyes that can often be read to know if you are safe or not.  

So I took off on the eyes yesterday before the entire painting was full of wet oil paints.  I am looking at this today and already thinking too much gold.  The green is bothering me too...but I will see it through a few more days before making any changes.

In life you often make snap decisions.  Sometimes that is too soon for those decisions.  God probably has not finished getting things set up for you. Back to control, that thing I am working on for 2017, as much as I am ready to knock out the greens and golds... but I will wait.  

Do you know yourself? Will you wait?

"Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD." Psalm 27:14
