Nov. 6th “Light Changes The Scene”


"The affect of “Light” on the subject, the intensity, the color all play a great part in a painting. One of the most important elements in a painting is how light penetrates. Its use can dramatically alter the appearance, the meaning, and the mood of any created work. It allows the artist to convey his or her expression and the painting to be viewed properly.

Men are more careful to do things that are right, act more properly, and be more careful when light is present. Darkness and shadow leave room for things that are not lawful, not right and for a thought process that falls far short of what we are called to do and to be.

Often we don’t even see the darkness we participate in for many reasons. We’re caught up in ourselves, we’re not listening to whom we should, or our focus is in the wrong place.

The Bible tells us that Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 Also in John 3:19 it states, “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.”

The world, men and all of us need more light because the world, what it says and what it preaches is still evil and what it does affects and influences all of us. Following it is wrong, no matter if you think it makes you happy. You can change the rules and tell people how wonderful things are, but light will always uncover darkness.

“Oh, Happy Day, when Jesus washed my sins away!” (Happy Day Lyrics)

“Tick tock, tick tock the world treads slow but is moving still
We pick and choose what we want not considering His will
We don’t want criticism or truth to stand before us to say
That we have danced with darkness and chosen its way
But apples and fruit are already bursting forth from the tree
For that which is born in our children doesn’t make them free!”

“Seeing the light and its power in a painting can help us grasp the truth and how important it is to live it out daily. Hope there is more light in your life and not just temporary feel good situations. Have a great week!”

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