"Starting Over"


"Starting Over" 14x11


This painting was today's demo for my class. The name has a couple of meanings. Firstly, I wiped off the first drawing because the composition was off, so I "started over". But this is also a poinsettia painting and since this is the Christmas Season, it's also a chance to "start over". What would we do without the Christ-mas season? Knowing Christ has allowed many folks to start over, to make a new beginning. It's through faith in Jesus Christ that allow us to know who we are, where we are going and where we come from. At the risk of sounding like a Hallmark card (which is what my son told me), my faith is about peace for today and hope for tomorrow. Thanks Jesus!
Have a blessed holiday season!
