Do You get Discouraged With Your art? [ 44th Peacescape]

There are days that I just can't get started with my painting. So, I sit in front of an empty canvas and just sit. When I have the time, but no energy, I just sit. Somedays I feel that I shall never get that perfect painting that I dream of--so I sit. I was reading the Bible and I came across this passage in Psalms 139:2,3 "YOU know when I sit down and when I get up. YOU know my thoughts before I think them. YOU know where I go and where I lie down. You know thoroughly everything I do." When I read this I began to realize that God exspects me to give honour to HIS name, by using the gift that He has given me. I know that it is a special gift from God to be an artist. I also know that it takes a lot of thought to start a work of art. When we just sit---then we are not thinking. We should start to think a new way to apply ourselves. SO--I started a new technique. It got me going and I was excited about painting again. Here is an example that I did. It is sorta like a new work to me. So if you are getting discouraged and sitting--just pick up that brush and paint---Just do something that you have never tried before. DON'T JUST SIT!!!!. Milliegiftsmith
