So, I thought with the blog I'd talk about my art. 

Lately I've been looking at where the views come from on my Flickr account. It is gratifying to see an image in a Google search result, and every now and then, someone clicks on one of my images.  I think I went looking for an "apples of gold in settings of silver" picture in the past, but I was unsatisfied with what I saw. I had it in my mind to draw my own version someday. 

When I found the iDough app, it was finally time to paint that picture. I was able to get a 3D apple shape. Then I added some "settings" surrounding the apple by pulling out more material from the apple in iDough. I took a screen shot, then finished the painting in ArtRage. In Artrage, there's a metallic paint option. I added some ink tool swirls and then called it a day. I'd like to visit the concept again someday.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 I guess the reason why the Lord said what he did about words fitly spoken is that they are precious and rare. I must say that has also been my experience. Those who have words of encouragement and blessing are few and far between. Most of us have agendas that are not for building others up, but to gratify our own selfish desires. I guess we need to go to that Fount of Wisdom and ask for the right things to say to people.
