Passions of an Odd Chick

The big picture


I've never been one to enjoy drawing or painting landscapes but this was a drawing I had to finish that I started when we visited Lost Valley Ranch when I went to see my son. I'm still marinating in the memories of that place and the wonderful time we had there.

Things are slowing down at the farm and Greg and I are both beginning to discuss our winter projects. He'll work in his shop and I'll create in my kitchen. It's always a peaceful, more relaxed, very creative time for the both of us and I'm looking forward to it and the holidays and time with family.

I have been so inspired and grateful for all the positive things I've seen with the results of the election. Admittedly, I didn't vote for Obama. I was concerned that he was all talk and just a man of promises with nothing in his background to prove his integrity. But seeing the hope and gratefulness of African Amercian people and seeing the hope of the whole world really of what America can do - well, it's given me renewed peace that God can use this man to improve the lives of many Americans. He now has my complete respect and loyalty and prayers as the man God put in power. My trust is still in a higher government that sets all rulers in place for whatever purposes He deems necessary. I stand in complete faith that He knows exactly what He is doing.

I appreciate this post so much. President-Elect Obama will need the support of more than just the people who voted for him.

I totally understand about this drawing. Some projects just have intense personal meaning for us.

i didn't think it was possible but you have even more respect and loyalty from me.

and your post...was just as eloquent as his speech of acceptance.

i kind of wondered if he was channeling jfk and dr. king...

I too welcome winter, a slowing of the days, the longer evening hours, the coldness of a winter's day..........time to do things inside that are not seen in the sunshine of summer....a honey-do list a mile long :)

Obama is indeed an inspiring individual, as is Michelle...I look forward to seeing them both stand together as one as he assumes the presidency..........and he will need all the help he can get from all of us............

I appreciate your post- our pastor said much the same thing at prayer meeting Wednesday night, along with the reminder that it is our responsibility to pray for our president, whoever he is. God put him in place to serve His purposes, whatever they may be.

Oh, and thank you for visiting my blog!:)

I think you are a very big person to open your heart to our new leader. I am touched by your words and will comment on your art at a later time.
