A sure path ...

Proverbs 3: 5-6 (The Message)

Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.

24 x 36 • oil on wood

Lots of busy-ness today -- all this week, actually! Appointments with the vet for pet checkups (4 of them!), with the CPA for tax stuff, with the eye doctor for new glasses, etc.

I’ve been thinking I’m going to start getting back in the practice of painting with oils (don’t worry, all you acrylic fans, I’m not abandoning them, for sure!) Above is the second oil painting I ever did, not counting paint-by-numbers as a kid. It’s certainly the largest oil I ever did. I’m kind of excited about seeing what will happen, and what comes through in these new works ... what being an artist is all about!

But first I have to finish that still life I just started ...

Later, taters!
