I watched in awesome wonder as the master began to create. Each brushstroke laid with infinite care, each line planned out to the end. It was a marvel to behold, to see the very moment of creation unfold. Ah, the beauty He drew forth from pigments made of dirt and clay. See the eagle soaring across the page, his eye intent to the valley below. And, oh, would you look at those flowers so huge and delicate blooming into existence. Ah, to experience the joy of creation again and again….

Author’s note: Happy New Year to any and all! I hope your new year is already filled with joyful times. Here in Kentucky, USA, we’re expecting our first accumulating snowfall in a few hours. Expected 1-3 inches, which for us with all our hills and curvy roads is a virtual shutdown situation. The usual mass exodus to stock up on milk, eggs, cereal and toilet paper is already occurring as evidenced by the full grocery store lot. Crazy insane, but it’s tradition here. Meanwhile, I made sure to stock the car with snacks, extra gloves,hat, blankets just in case. My AAA is updated, so I’m good to go. Welcome winter! 🙂 Maybe I’ll do a little creating of my own with my watercolors… I’ve decided to work on that skill this year.

  1. I felt the Biblical overtones very clearly in this piece, I like how you weave those phrases into the story and leave us wondering if we’re watching God or ‘just’ a painter. And now I’m singing hymns in my head!

    1. I’m so happy it came through the way it was intended. Can you just imagine what it would be like to watch God as he created the universe. It would be beyond awesome. Maybe someday, we’ll have the opportunity to do just that.
      🙂 ❤


  2. Dear Bear,

    Your first line firmly implanted an earworm…how great thou art, how great thou art. 😉 (Not a bad one to have running through my head.) Lovely descriptions from one artist to another. Best wishes on diving into watercolor. I’m loving it.
