Art in the Cold

In everything God creates, if we look hard enough we will still see beauty. As I went to take out the trash this afternoon, I noticed how the snow clung to my new rock wall. I thought it interesting how it clung to some areas and yet totally missed others creating another interesting God type artwork.

I am big on patterns and coming from the quality control world sometimes those patterns can let you know if something is off or not. Now that I am retired, I just like to see what pattern emerge when I look at things. I have teased Irene of Heaven’s Sunshine on her post of Dark Star telling her where my quirky visual eye saw Mary and baby Jesus in her flower of the day.

And then today I told CitySonnet on her wonderful picture of a Pansy when I could see someone in yellow shirt with white sleeves and blue bell bottoms praising the heavens.

Its a fun way to share our individual quirky art side. Some of us more quirky than others but that is why art is so subjective. Its in the eye of the artist. Even with writing. My book is now fully complete and edited so I am trying to figure out what to do about publishing it – traditional or self publish. What are the pros and cons of each. Who is good, who can you trust. It a lot to process for a newby. Plus the content is really out there unless you are an avid dog lover who truly believes all dogs do go to heaven. LOL. But we will see. I am up for any advice anyone wants to share. Until then I will continue to share my quirkiness, fun side and kindness here in the blogusphere world.

As you share with each other here or even as you go about your day, I remind you to always be kind. Kindness is the light of Christ shining through us to help lighten the darkness of someone’s day.

  1. A beautiful post Anita, I love the way God and nature create their art 💜 As for publishing, there is a lot of information out there and a lot of advice. Ultimately, you and only you can decide what is the best way forward and then the learning curve truly begins 🙂💖🍀 xxx

  2. If you want to self-post Indie on Amazon is what several of my author friends use. Many others may be legit but they are very pricey (Westbow). To publish through a traditional publisher I highly recommend getting an agent to guide you through the process. There are specific forms each publisher has for how to submit your book and they must be closely adhered to or they won’t even look at your submission. There are also Christian publishers. Locally I could go through Roaring Lambs. Check your local (and legitimate) sources.
