Peaceful and Painting

Things are very peaceful around here. It has rained several inches on our beautiful corn fields, and our pecan orchards look like state parks. God is good. Sometimes I feel like my heart will burst for all the blessings that surround me.

It's that time of year when we have our yearly art show at the museum in Roswell. I have submitted 3 paintings to be juried. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Last year, I submitted one painting very timidly, and got in. I didn't win anything but my goal was only to get in. Now, I want to win something so I submitted more chances. I should know something next week.

I also will soon be going to an art class in Cloudcroft and the instructor will be Ken Hosmer. I am really excited. If anyone knows anything about this artist, good or bad, I would be interested in hearing your comments.

Art is that consistent companion that adds icing to my strawberry cake of life.

This is my journal entry. The above is what happened after I played with it in Flickr.

peace - don't leave home without it :)

I love both of the sheepies - but I'm leaning most heavily on the darkened one. You are a gifted artist. Blessings on all you hope and dream of!

I am wishing for you, a judge that see's with his/her heart, rather than eyes. A moment of splendor when some one says " wow! I love this!" and you chance to over hear, and a smile inside because you know that you have given your best, and it is absolutely with out a doubt, good enough.
