This page is from a photograph I took several months ago, of the bench in my back yard. I did a image transfer over top of a gesso and acrylic (blue) background. Super simple, it took all of 20 minutes including drying time! I wanted to keep the page clean and minimal to express a calm and restful mood, as a reminder to my self that I need to rest. Taking a break from all of life's planed rigid moments is a necessity. Taking time away from the happenings of the day each day to be in God's presence is necessary to wage a good warfare. Sometimes we think that battle consists of just fighting and doing but really is not a good battle fought and the war often won with careful quiet observation, careful planning, and mental and spiritual preparation, we may wield a mighty sword, but if we are to tired and lack the emotional or spiritual stamina to hold it up and swing it, it will do us no good! I hope you all have a restful and peace filled weekend!
