Rickey's Art Gallery
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.
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.
