Sept. 4th “Glazing Over”

“Purple With Green Centers”

"A great technique in oil painting is using glazes. Once the work is drawn out completely a transparent color can be applied over an under painted or any other surface on the canvas. These glazes actually reflect light and the more glazes the deeper the shadows, the depth, the richness of color and highlight of the surface.

Today society doesn’t see a lot. In fact it is pretty much meism focused. Gone are the days of really reaching out and doing and serving others. The only time we see this change is when there is something like this past hurricane. People do reach out and are concerned for neighbors, friends and family during times of crisis and disaster. America seems to get centrally focused when challenged or wronged.

We glaze over stuff. In fact we pass by without seeing things and we change things to meet our personal desires and self interest.

After the week we’ve had and what seems to be happening all over the country isn’t it time to re-examine everything. We haven’t come a long way baby. We’ve deteriorated from our roots, beliefs and just about everything we once held dear.

Many, many Christians are no longer salt and light and have joined the world. They have forgotten that they are not their own, but accountable ambassadors and citizens of another Kingdom.

Is it time to take a closer look? Maybe it’s time to stop glazing over things in this life!”

“Many people recently lost just about all they had
But spoke about family not stuff that made them sad
People stood beside each other helping as they could
Living and being whose you are is really awful good
Be careful what you choose and taking that great advice
For He keeps watch over His keeping an account of life!”

“Often paintings are ruined when you try to change them. It’s like the point where you can’t turn back because your pride won’t let you. But thankfully God can change circumstances, events and hearts especially of His own. Have a great week!”

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