Cody     11 x 14 oil on linen   A Christmas Commission - SOLD

I wrote this note to a friend today....I don't share this sort of thing too often on my blog posts, but mainly just "art". There's more of that ahead, but for now, HAPPY 2015!

It can be lonely after the holiday "attention". Attention we GIVE to "planning" and "details"...attention that we GET from friends, family... Heck, even the retailers give us "attention", calling our name to make us feel special this time of year!!! 
That's some kind of attention!! 
I'm alone today and I think God brought to mind my "alone" friends. There's something very sweet about His presence in quiet stillness. He never leaves us...unchanging. Jesus has a sweet way of entering those moments...on purpose... And covering us with reminders of His faithful, steadfast presence. God often uses my lonely heart to fill up with Himself. What can be better than that? Thank you for your prayers for my family in 2014. May I order more of the same for 2015?
I look forward to getting to know YOU better in 2015!
