Are you wandering lost?

A trip back to my studio at the lake.  I am filling some of this in for me to have images of the current things I am painting right now.  This is the beginning stages of a commission painting that was for a collector in Australia. The canvas is painted with Blue Acrylic and then White chalk to sketch off the horse.

When you are planning something how do you begin your planning? In the studio my work always begins with prayer for the Holy Spirit to guide me in my work.  If I forget, I usually get tangled in a mess of a painting that gets scraped until I hit it just right.   You will watch this painting progress from this beginning idea in the sketch book to the canvas before you.

Meanwhile remember to talk to God and allow the Holy Spirit to work with you this day... all day if you can. Let go and let God do it.

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
