I have been enjoying weekly visits with a group of artists in Grand Rapids. We’ve been exploring the use of acrylics for background and oil for color. It’s been very interesting to see how each of us uses color, shapes, and design in different ways.
For me it was a bit difficult to shift from photo references of realistic scenes to see what the paint would bring to life.
It reminds me of messages I’ve been hearing/reading on logic vs imagination in business, life and in studying the Bible. It is after all the Living Word.
Every word you give me is a miracle word—
how could I help but obey?
Break open your words, let the light shine out,
let ordinary people see the meaning.
Mouth open and panting,
I wanted your commands more than anything.
Turn my way, look kindly on me,
as you always do to those who personally love you.
Steady my steps with your Word of promise
so nothing malign gets the better of me.
