Day 3 - In God's Presence 40 days
In today's post I have decided to focus on other artists instead of my own sketches or work. I have several projects that are wip. I will post those at a later date.
Today the title is "The God Who Is Slow To Anger" and is about the everlasting covenant of the Rainbow between God and all living creatures. I am sure Rainbow Barbara in Germany would love this verse. I am captivated by the postcards in her post titled "Christmas." They are very powerful visuals.
I am still studying to figure out my personal symbols. The rainbow was a symbol, sign, covenant and reminder to God, Himself and to all creatures. The Rainbow of Hope was a reminder that the flood of God's anger had abated. I love the personal truth Jordan speaks of on this day: When It Rains It Pours - But When He Reigns, The Son Shines.
Do you remember the little girl holding her box of salt upside down and letting it pour out on the old Morton salt boxes? There was something I loved about looking at that little girl.
We are to be salt and light in the earth? Salt has so many uses. Once I did a study on salt and found out many interesting things about this product. Check it out for yourself and see what you come up with. You might be surprised! There is also a blog Salt that offers fun challenges to create and post on your blog. There are many different interpretations of the themes they pick and you can see other creative artists and the medium they work in.
I have been in a postcard group through VCQ since the fall of '05.
Our most recent theme is
We can interpret it anyway we choose. Here are a few interpretations. There are some great artists in this group. Their talent can be seen in their sanguine cards.
Oops the first one is turned wrong. It represents the element of air and the season of Spring. The right-hand corner card is Castle Sanguine and represents a photo by Nick Stooke. It was interpreted from the definition of sanguine - "a drawing in red crayon, red chalk, or the like."
The bottom-left card is an interpretation from a quote by Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr. "His sanguine spirit turns every firefly into a star. And the last one a compilation of views of poppies that has a lovely poem on the back by Francis Thompson titled The Poppy.
This postcard theme challenge is one of my WIP. Due at the beginning of the New Year. No actually I think it is due tomorrow. I have had an idea but could not figure out how to get it in postcard form. Suddenly, the idea has taken shape and is coming to fruition.
