Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!
Though we have not had a huge storm here today, this is what the sky looks like right now in the east!
Very large billowy clouds - its a little unusual for our area, but very beautiful.
This painting has a story! It actually was a massive storm with tornadoes that I drove through in northern Indiana a couple of years ago. Only after we had driven through the thick of it, could we look back and see the beauty of the sun on the clouds. Something of a metaphor for life, I think!
Also, as we were still driving through it, in near darkness, a bright golden light from the western horizon started seeping underneath the clouds and the storm moved eastward. After a short time, everything was absolutely bathed in golden light! It was breath taking.
And, I was reminded of the biblical verse, "no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him." (I Cor. 2:9)
If such breathtaking moments on earth remind us of these things ... just imagine how much more awaits those who love God!? Pretty cool!
