Watercolor on mat board, 5″ x 7″
This blog has been going for three and a half years now, and I really appreciate the encouragement that I’ve received even though the rate of posting has been so slow at times.
Paul in the Bible uses athletic training to make a comparison to the importance of discipline in the goal of receiving an eternal reward in heaven, not excusing himself from this, saying “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” (1 Corinthians 9:27) Sometimes I’ve tried giving advice to other artists on the importance of practicing and trying in art despite worries of how it’ll look, but I know I haven’t been as disciplined as that myself. This isn’t good. There’s too much paint still in tubes, ink still in bottles, and graphite still trapped inside wood instead of on paper or canvas where they all belong.
I’ve finally changed the blog title from the generic one I’ve used all along to something more appropriate for what I want to do. Also I’ve been trying out options with the blog theme to make things look a little better. Does the background photo make the text hard to read?
