This painting reminds me of things that are being pushed together, rubbing up against each other like tectonic plates shifting beneath the ocean. This might be on purpose. It might be the result of changes you’ve already been making or of changes that aren’t being made. Shifts and changes always cause disruptions, but sometimes that is what we need. 8×8 on gallery wrapped canvas.
Fresh snow! Before we dive into other things let’s take a moment to enjoy the first falling of snow. I love it. It is going to make life cold and miserable, but I love it all the same.

I thought I could just let things go, do a little painting, […]
There is a a belief that we are broken, damaged and in constant need of repair. We’ve learned to be committed to our brokenness, defined by it, live trapped in a cage of our brokenness. Because when we are broken, we must be fixed and someone is ready to sell us the perfect solution. And when that perfect solution fails?
