I tried something new yesterday for the first time...painting an abstract. I've really had the itch to give it a try and I had a blast. I had a leftover canvas hanging out in my closet so I thought, "What the heck? I'll give it a whirl!"
Wondering how I'm going to tie abstract art and transparency together into one post? Well, friends, take a close look at this painting. It's definitely not bright and happy and may even be translated as dark and gloomy. Today's transparent moment is something that can throw me into this dark and gloomy space quicker than I'd like to admit.
It starts with this...
It took me way too long to figure this out, but one day I finally realized that silly scale was controlling me. Why in the world would I allow a number define me? Doesn't make sense, right? Logically, I know this but weight and food are real issues in my life.
Well, I convinced myself to take back control and stop stepping on the scale. It's tucked away nicely in the linen closet and only gets used once in a blue moon now. I know it sounds silly, but it feels a little triumphant to have overcome the 'need' to weigh myself daily.
So, friends, what's controlling you? Is there something you'd love to break free from? Are you ready to get out of the dark and gloomy?
I'd love to pray for you. Leave a comment or send me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
