The Life in Watercolors

It is no secret that I love watercolors. Just take a look around my shop. I thought I would take a minute and share just why I love them so much. 

Watercolor painting is just how it sounds. Painting with water. Sometimes I use a brush with the paint and sometimes I 'paint' with just water and then drop the color in to let it run and create the desired affect. Sometimes the paint colors run together creating a beautiful blend of colors. This can sometimes be difficult for the perfectionist in me if the paint gets a mind of its own and goes somewhere I didn't originally intend. Sometimes this means starting over but more often it creates something even more beautiful than I originally imagined. 

I think I love watercolor painting so much because it is so much like our lives. We have good times and we have bad times. Moments of extreme joy and happiness, and moments of excruciating pain. But if we let God work in His grace and take over the painting of our lives, then these times will blend together into something so beautiful that only our Creator could have planned. Our lives are a work of art, painted by our Heavenly Father but we just can't see the finished product yet. One day, when we meet our Creator on the other side of heaven's gates, we will look back and see just how God was using the rough patches to create a beautiful masterpiece. 

Your life is a work of art, let Him make it beautiful.
