How to paint, really.

The Important stuff you won't find in a book or teachers rarely share in art school.

Paint Faithfully, like someone so filled with belief (which you have), that the extra spills over into every fiber of canvas, splashing the color on mostly by faith, not necessarily by sight, so that every soul that feels the art gains faith themselves.

 Paint Emotionally, like someone who sees something deeply for the first time, (which you are), and connects subjects in ways so unique that the end results affect viewers just as deep. Paint the joy, hope, sadness, anger, weightiness, sharpness, wetness, lightness, etc. of the subject first than the actual subject's image second.

Paint Honestly, like someone so in harmony with how the evidence of the scene is being played out, (which you make), in synch, testifying to the art-full truth before you.

 Paint Bravely, like someone on a mission to connect (which you get), that, which only you can give, to a world in need, your Art-filled story only you can tell.

Paint Confidently, like someone in charge, (which you can), even if it seems out of control, lay your strokes down trusting experience and education to add intrinsic value way beyond your control.

Paint Wisely, like someone who knows what to do, when to do it, and why it's done. (which you know) that through today's hard work, will yield visions of bountiful fruit in the future.

Paint Lovingly, like someone who feels God's pleasure in every moment, (which you do), with every blink, breath and brushstroke, all fear cast out, touching viewers hearts and minds with your work, all the while healing your own.
