(This is a repaint combination of two paintings I did back in 2004... horses from one and color palette from another.)

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” - Isaiah 53:5-6

This is another one of my miniatures that I am preparing for larger paintings for my upcoming Denver Show in July at Mirada Fine art.   I am hoping to do a painting on site at the gallery if we are able to arrange it.

The base was a rusty orange coating of acrylic with heavy overlays of oil paint.

Yesterday we began working on clearing the banks of the pond some more. We are under a burn ban so we will continue to clear and then have to pay to have someone come clear the trash of trees and limbs from our lot.  We desperately need rain. My prayers this next week are focused on just that.

Make a list of things to pray about this week and keep up with it... even if you do not make another ...keep up with this first one. Pray daily about the things on your list...and when you find answers for those prayers, date the list next to that item. It is a wonderful way to see God at work as He does answer prayers. Not always the way we want him to, but things evolve and resolve.


"If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God who gives to all generously and ungrudging, and it will be given to you." James 1:5

IF There is Doubt, Don't do it.

Terry and I were collapsed on the couch yesterday around four and Oprah was on when we switched on the tv to veg out to fresh baked Tilapia, summer squash, sweet potato fries, and a big salad. (Oh also a bowl of fresh cut up strawberries, apples and grapes)  We both worked hard all day... up till eight last night. I was washing sheets and preparing the guest room for the RETURN OF LADY L and her parents.  How cool is that?

She is a right handed painter and loves painting with me in the studio.

It was a rerun on Oprah from her trip down under to Australia and we enjoyed everything we saw on the journey.  Russell Crow had Oprah out on a sailboat and she asked him if the Oscar had changed his life.  He said it really did not as he did his job every day... just like anyone does and the Academy Awards truly had nothing to do with his job.  He told Oprah that she had affected his life dramatically and he always remembered her words, "If there is doubt, don't do it." Russell Crow applies this in his life even today.  Using that inner voice that you ALWAYS hear when it tells you to do or not to do. 

So I am sharing that with you today...if you are like me sometimes you get carried away with following others or following a dream you have that you need to do something.  Deep inside there is something nagging you but you ignore it. You want to control your life and you go in the direction you think is best despite that inner voice.

Listen... God is talking.. He is that inner voice.


“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” - 1 John 1:9
