Delights the eye
Was it real
Or just seen
By Van Gogh’s
I have always admired “The Starry Sky” painting by Van Gogh and the interesting history behind it.
Therefore, when I was given the opportunity to try to paint it as a gift for my grand-daughter, I jumped at the chance,however as a beginner in art, and a newby with acrylics, I was challenged indeed!
However, as Van Gogh said: “If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” So I gave it a try!
The result was of course no where near as beautiful as Van Gogh’s but I had fun trying and my grand-daughter loved it!

When they did
When the King comes,
In His glory.
Will the earth rejoice?
This morning as I was creating some Christmas Artist Trading Cards for an upcoming group swap I decided to use one of the playing cards I had on hand for a background. The card I happened to choose was the King of Hearts. Immediately the chorus from the hymn “The King of Glory” popped into my head. This had to be sent by God as I have not heard nor sung this song for years.
Like falling leaves
Blessings coming down
From Father of Lights
With whom there’s no end
Too many to count
So I just say “Thank You”
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James 1:17 KJV
It was a fairly windy warm Fall day today and I enjoyed being outside just watching the wind blowing the leaves around. I missed out on getting a video of a group of leaves dancing as I didn’t have my camera ready in time but it was awesome to see them swirl and twirl together in sort of a whirlwind burst of air.
But I did capture another video of them looking like they were racing each other as a big gust of wind blew them along. Fun day! 😊
