“Forever Grand” is a 24×36″ oil on canvas fresh off the easel.
I love the Grand Tetons any time of the year, but get a little of the fall color in and they are even more magical and majestic. Not only did the hint of fall color draw me to this piece but the sun light hitting the tops of the peaks with so much shadow on the rest of the mountains was dramatic!
A Few Art and Life Thoughts: Your Life Palette
What is it that makes some people a success at something and others not as successful? It’s not always the most talented, whether in business, sports, medicine, ministry, or any number of career choices. Nor is it those who just happened to get lucky, or are at the right place at the right time. So what is it? What makes the difference?
It’s this: each of us is given a palette in life. We make the choices that will develop our Life Palette. From this palette the color and composition of the life you live is determined. How you develop your Life Palette will cause those around you to take notice, to pause and consider the beauty of a life lived with direction and destiny compared to one lived aimlessly and without effect.
Perhaps you’ve heard it said that in life you are either in a crisis, just getting out of a crisis or headed toward one. That is by no means a doom and gloom statement. It’s just the way life is. Most of what happens to you is, unfortunately, out of your control. Yet one thing you can control is how your Life Palette is developed. And your success or failure will be a direct result of that Life Palette.
Why does someone face circumstances that seem insurmountable and become better through them, even leveraging them to their benefit and the benefit of those around them? They’ve developed their Life Palette. They may not even intentionally know they’ve done it, but they have. And in this book, you will discover how to develop your Life Palette—and allow God to paint your life as the masterpiece He designed you to be.
You can choose to do what you wish with your life. You have been given the privilege by your Creator to completely mess up your life and make it a disingenuous forgery of what it could be. Or you can do your part to become the masterpiece God has created you to be. The palette He has to work with is up to you.
