“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”   Neil Gaimen

This particular painting was three different paintings in the course of 24 hours before I settled on the strength in this one. With the mudding of colors, came a strength of peace and an earthy feel. Contrast pulls of red, blue and green throughout the piece strengthened it more.

When Life get humdrum... or you feel lost or empty, maybe it is time to invest yourself into giving or doing for others in your life or your community.  I remember as a teen asking my Grandmother about Happiness.  She said it finds you when you least expect it.  You cannot chase it, or force it, or wait on it... it happens when you give of yourself to others.

 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Matthew 7:13-14
