|Kids who love horses and want to ride can find any number of ways to get in the saddle. Giving riding lessons for many years afforded me many opportunities to watch kids use every available bucket, fence, bale of hay or feed trough to help them into the saddle. The piece is detailed right down to the skid boots on the hind legs and Dad's rope. "Britches", as we affectionately call her, is in the permanent collection of the American Quarter Horse Heritage Center and Museum in Amarillo, Texas.|
As I work in clay on a sculptural piece, with wonderful music on the CD player, my studio begins to turn into a sanctuary. The joy of creating overtakes every other emotion, time seems to stop, and the Lord's directive presence becomes most evident. I can only imagine the joy Jesus has in His creation that lives and breathes, sings and dances, paints and sculpts, writes music and poetry, raises children, loves the wife, loves the husband, pats the dog, hugs the cat, brings home the bacon, and stays the course. Creativity is not limited to the arts, it comes in street clothes. God is the direct author of all that has been achieved on this planet, in space, in the arts, in science and medicine, in technology; and continues to be creatively involved in every aspect of His creation. Thanks be to God for allowing us to "borrow" His talent; and to have so much fun doing so!
