In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Genesis 1: 1-5
God spoke, and His words created His works in the natural world. God’s creation is but a reservoir of means made ready for Him to employ instantly to do what He wants to do.
EG White written in letter 131 in 1897
Try to do new creative things!
If you hear a voice within you say ” you cannot paint “
then by all means paint and the voice will be silenced.
“I like so much to paint the eyes of people than to paint cathedrals.”

I am so grateful that Vincent Van Gogh silenced that “voice” and kept painting! Adore his work x
Yes me too. His life had so little recognition while he could have done with it! So sad!
Love the history of your iris. How special! Look after it well. Our African iris looks quite similar, but it has none of those stunning berries.
Looking forward to seeing your paintings 🥰. Go for it!
Oh I’m just encouraging others. But yes I will have a go now that you said it.🤣🤣🤣
