“Creators understand that their emotions are not necessarily a sign of the circumstances. They understand that in desperate circumstances they may experience joy, and in jubilant circumstances they may feel regret. They know that any emotion will change. But because emotions are not the centerpiece of their lives, they do not pander to them. They create what they create, not in reaction to their emotions but independent of them. On days filled with the depths of despair, they can create. On days filled with the heights of joy, they can create.” Robert Fritz 'The Path with Least Resistance: Learning to Become the Creative Force in your Own Life.'
I finished this painting in 2017 for a Christmas Commission last year. Sailboats have not graced my easel since then, so one may be in the near future. Water is the key of my sailing painting. The waves and wind determine direction and speed. I have to be like that water in my creativity. Allowing the creativity to expand and roll as it forms.
Is water powerful to you? It is for me. I draw peace and calm from water. It is the balance to the air I breathe and a constant reminder that I am like that water... able to flow through the streams of life around all obstacles IF I TRUST IN GOD. In my creativity, it is letting it all go… to the path of least resistance, not controlling the process...and allowing the energy to explode on my canvas.
As we look forward to the year changing and welcoming in 2019, while it seems easy to follow the path of least resistance, but it is not God's path for us. Not all paths will be the easy ones... God send us out to toughen us up and wants us to lean back and rely on him as we face obstacles.
Luke 13:23-30 "Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?”
He said to them, “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’
“But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’
“Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’
“But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’
“There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God. Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last.”"
