A couple of weeks ago, I could have been touchy when some people came into my studio/gallery and made fun and mocked my abstract art. I became an abstract artist when physically I couldn’t do work on an easel anymore. Without perspective of upright canvas and landscape work I moved to painting flat on a high table. That is when I discovered my heartfelt work of doing abstract. I feel so joyful when doing my art. That is why it was such a shock when these people came in and were so insulting. At first, I started to be defensive, a natural response. But then I realized when I looked at the painting of mine about God and the Trinity (at the right in Greek 81 is God) that I needed to turn the other cheek. I needed to show them what my art was all about to me. Maybe they got it or not. They did quiet down some. But I did expose them to something about peace and joy and love. I don’t
have to be touchy but I do have to touch lives.
