Another article on the importance of ART!
Sunday, August 28, 2016
from Nancy Ryner, artist, Santa Fe NM.
“Call me an optimist, but I believe that art can heal. Man has the powerful ability to dream, to create better worlds and new realities. And images play an important role in this. Our history begins with images, which go far back in time, even farther than language, and are cross cultural. We are united through images. I keep this in mind daily as I am barraged through news and media with sensationalist stories and events of world crisis. Part of me wants to join the peace corps but instead I paint. I paint with the conviction that my images can heal.”
The high-lighting is by me.

"Wow, that is special ... for me I need Holy Spirit empowerment for literally
everything from cooking to gardening, not to mention study and prayer.
There was a little line at the end of my "poetry" however, which spoke to me a
nd to Stephanie my eldest daughter.: . . . . . I am calling, I awaken you to my
Voice. Listen and hen . . . live your reply. "As I thought on this I realized how
God expects an affirmative reply to His call. What a glorious optimist?
Rejoicing in His beauty,
PS I am putting and keeping the Fine Arts Ministry in the Tuesday
"prayer and fasting" agenda. I am exhausting myself with excitement over what the Lord is doing using you two beautiful servants of His."
"I spent a lot of time drawing today myself. I often avoid drawing. It is the left brain function syndrome problem. However, I need to draw for some illustration work. I think most of the time I get stumped by what medium to use. Should I use pencil, charcoal, pen and ink? This debate keeps me from starting. So Sunday's workshop got me going too. I did several graphite drawings (sketches) today. I will send a photo of the sea otter I did. He is really cute.
Suzannah, thanks for your sharing from your lovely poem. That really is the Truth, that God is on the give and He wants a reply!
"How blessed i am with your enthusiasm and excitement!
Thank you, Cheryl, for your sharing about your quandary
whenever you begin or think about drawing. It is an
encouragement to me regarding several things". -- Susannah Barbian
