Race to the Flames

8 X 10 Oil on Gessoed Masonite $125
Includes Shipping and Insurance
Facing the flaming future fearlessly. I love alliteration - especially in art! Talk radio has been ominous lately. I don't know what to believe, but I refuse to run and hide. My art will reflect this for a while, I think.

I have been having a number of conversations with God lately and most of these talks have centered around death. Not just my own, but people close to me. I lost my father 25 years ago, and I still miss him, but I have no doubt where he is and that I'll see him again. I still have my adorable mother and both my incredible in-laws in my life - and they, too, are going where I'm going. Hopefully, not soon, but every one's path terminates eventually and the older you get, the more you think about it.

I had a revelation the other day as I was drying my hair over the air conditioning unit outside (this has been my practice for a number of years). After we die (if we believe in God, that is) so MANY questions are answered. I have always been a questioner, and I always want to know how stuff works, and why we do something a certain way, etc. I cannot WAIT to have all my questions answered. That ALONE makes the future less ominous. I'm still gonna paint flames for a while, though, because I like them.

Ecclesiastes 7:10
Do not say, "Why were the old days better than these?" For it is not wise to ask such questions.

Hi Debbie,
I like the flames and your fearless facing of the future. I too have been focusing much more on eternity and life there as opposed to here. There is such comfort in knowing Jesus and its for such a time as this that we were born - let your light shine! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, the Lord bless you.
