Today is Inspire Your Heart With Art Day. Look at a piece of art. Does it say something to you? How does it make you feel? What emotions does it bring? I'm not very good at studying art. Some people that read my blog are awesome artists, like Flor, Adrienne and sruble. I wish I could be more artistic. Maybe I'd understand things better. The only paintings I've ever done are paint-by-number. I did one of The Last Supper and another of Jesus with some children. I have both framed and hanging in my hall. Ironically, when my mom was younger, she painted the same exact paint-by-number of The Last Supper as I did. I wish I had her copy too.
If I had to look around my house for one piece of art, it would be this picture above. It's a framed print and it's pretty big. You can't see it here, but it's in a beautiful blue frame. It's really heavy and was really expensive. Rick gave it to me years ago for Mother's Day. I have this little nook area as you come into my front door and that's where this picture is hanging. I love it. It speaks to me, it brings about a feeling of peace, and it reminds me who is in charge. If you're not a Christian, it probably won't mean much to you like it does to me. I've always thought it was important to stop and smell the roses or jump in a rain puddle just because it's there. I guess today is a good day to look at a piece of art and see if it inspires your heart in some way.
