There are no brakes on life. It’s hard and fast and furious if we fight it and try to slow it down. Since that doesn’t work, what if we embrace it – no matter what the old devil has thrown at us? He will make sure to distract us with things that keep us down rather than build us up. He makes evil things look like something we want or something we should want in order to be happy. But we never are.
I painted this painting called “Hello World” back in 2015:
It’s funny my very own work means something more to me now than it did back then. When I painted it, I was thinking of a world of possibilities and welcoming those possibilities. And, I still do think of this. Now, I also see him outstretched and looking to God for guidance and being open, welcoming His presence. Since there are large buildings, I imagine him to be in the city where there is lots of noise and distractions but he is focused, has direction and determination.
Because of all this, I love the painting even more. I’ve held on to him for a good deal of time but I do feel he’s ready. I have listed him in the shop .
I hope he brings someone joy, just as he has me.
