Horse 22 Gaze of Strength
8 x 8 inches Oil on Canvas.
Remnant tinges of the raspberry pink bleed through the reds and mauves on this surface of a horse painting. The startling effect of the Indian Gold on the neck near the mane creates a path for the eye to feel the gentle neck of the horse. Strength in the face and eyes on this equine, hence the name, Gaze of Strength.
Finally the trees are budding out with green leaves. It is officially spring by the calendar. I noted on the weather news last night the record high for a date last week was 100 degrees. ??? (this is March?) We were at a high that day of 54 and a low that night around freezing. It happened in 1916. Ninety-eight years ago. I actually remember in 2007, seven years ago, we had the wettest spring and summer I had seen in my life time. We never topped 99 degrees and it rained constantly. I long for a spring summer more like that as we are falling further into a horrible drought in Texas. Some lakes are close to 25 ft below, and some are only 6 ft below normal. Is there a normal any more?
Terry and I have a private joke when we are watching TV and it shows lush green lawns, flowers and beautiful thick trees...
"It Rains There."
When you see content people, families and friends, not swayed by the negativity around them, or the chaos threatening them, remember our phrase from above and say "God's There".
Peace to the brothers and sisters,and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love. Ephesians 6:23-24
