" I had a comment on a post the other day in which a person tried to make the argument that expressions of paintings were all the same and no painting was better than another. Then I saw this article in which the author said real talent as an artist wasn’t important unless your specific goal was to become famous and then you needed a boat load full. The idea is to learn some basic skills and then have fun. Of course he has a video painting course to sell you.

There’s an interesting depiction in the Bible about Solomon building God’s Temple. King Hiram sent him a man of great skill, trained to work in gold, silver, bronze, and experienced in all kinds of engraving and, get this, able to execute any design given to him. Ask yourself, why didn’t Hiram just send him someone to have fun?

Being an artist painter isn’t an easy task and yet people everywhere have adopted the idea that that person is only having fun. We teach kids as soon as they can mush their hands into paint to experience painting, not directly on the walls though!

In a throwaway relationships, feelings first, it’s all about me society, it’s hard to recognize with all of the distractions, paintings that as Picasso said, “Wash the soul everyday!"

“When I saw her she opened up my very heart and soul
I was caught, couldn’t breathe and my hands were cold
I want so to engage with her and really know her more
But my mouth was dry and my chin felt as if on the floor
I’d never experienced anything as I felt I was fainting
I looked closely once again; I have to have that painting!”

“If you obtain paintings that you can’t live without, they will never disappoint you! Have yourself a wonderful week, especially if you are a Mother.”

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
