Drawing Shouldn’t be Complicated
Try 33 Dots to Discover your creativity and God’s Word – porcupine
The other day I read Meg Konovska’s post about her method of painting with 33 dots. This fascinated me as I need more help visualizing pictures. At first I forgot the number and painted only with 14 dots. Both my 5 year grandson and I tried it with 14. We used shiny paper and markers. It was so much fun.
Here at the 14 dot pictures.
Now he is excited to try with 33 dots.
Today I tried the 33 dots and immediately saw a porcupine (stylized).
When I think of a porcupine I think of prickly and defensive.
We can be like porcupines. We snap. We get defensive.
But porcupines are reacting to danger.
What is pushing our buttons?
God gave us the ability to change. When we see the problem, we can ask for help. When we pray and ask God for help in those situations where our emotions would rather scream, but our spirit wants to halt.
We remember the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22
“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
As we head into the busyness of Christmas, reflect on this. Breathe. Seek God. Find His love, joy, peace and hope. Try not to be a porcupine.
