Red Rose in the Rain

Recently saw a photograph of  raindrops on a red rose that was so beautiful!  Decided I wanted to paint it and have started over more than a half dozen times.  It is in my head but I can’t transfer it to a canvas.  The more I try, the more frustrated I become and I just want to give up.  The irritation doesn’t stop with the painting.

A light comes on and I stop to pray.  John 5:30 states “I can of mine own self do nothing:”  Then I see there was no humility nor love in my motive; just a desire to prove “I can do this!”  Now, I look in all parts of my life to see where I need to be more loving and humble and know with God’s help, of course I can paint this rose and will release human will power and human outlining but come from expressing Love and sees what shows up on the canvas!

Gratitude is Riches Swallowtail
