in the New Elements show in a few weeks
this one was done the day i painted in wrightsville beach last week.
i've been painting everyday but ive been besieged by personal problems. thats the only thing that can keep me from painting i think. my grand-dog got hit by a car and we fought the fight to keep him alive only to have to put him to sleep today and bury him. very emotional! cars breaking down, both mine (in the middle of nowhere while i was painting) and my wifes about a dozen times in the last few weeks. i wont go on.... but that gives you the idea of what kind of weekend its been. painting has helped me keep my sanity lately.
the thing i think i'm learning is to trust God and stay grateful even in the midst of these storms. good things must be right around the next corner.
i know this is not my usual blog fare but blogs are supposed to be a REAL look into the life of the blogger and things arent always rosy, right? it doesnt get any more real than that.
i'm back to my regular schedule tomorrow so posts will be more timely
