art and prayer

Well I finally got to some of my artwork yesterday. It had been a while. I just didn't feel like doing it. I would look into the back and see my stuff, and just think, yeah I should get to it, but just didn't. I wanted to want to do it, but I just couldn't get out there and start painting.

When I did, it was with some reluctance, looking for something else to do. But the strangest thing happened, as I was working on my paintings I started really get into it. I was having a great time, and was inspired to finish some other pieces, and start a whole bunch of others. It was in the discipline of doing it that the inspiration came.

Good stuff man! I've never been an artist and never understood art. My "art" has always been observing natural processes (every see bacteria multiply- that is beautiful). If this brings you closer to G-d, then do it- when ever the Spirit strikes you.
