The Way of the Artist

Sitting silently next to a canvas on my easel,

Pondering its contrast of lights and darks,

A voice within urges me to transform this image.

Use the old to create the new.

This is Leila-

An invitation to have fun,

Discover the mystery,

Take the journey of playing with color.

I began

Not knowing what the next stroke would be.

Before I knew it

I was finished,

Looking at the painting in amazement.

Who had done this painting?

Where had my soul gone when this took place?

I had visited another realm where God’s joy is forever present.

Thank you God for awakening this gift.
