Art is a collaboration between God and the artist and the less the artist does the better.

front cover 1I am not an artist! Or at least I have told myself that.

I was told I was wrong.

If you can paint a picture with paint, you are an artist.
If you can paint a picture with song, you are an artist.
If you can paint a picture with words, you are an artist.

So I guess I’m an artist and I also can now see how the above quote can even apply to me. When I wrote my “Dandy Lion” story, I kept claiming I had no idea how it was going to turn out. I was literally crying as I was typing out the end because I was shocked out how beautiful the ending was. Sure, I wrote it, it was for the most part my idea, but I give a ton of credit (if not most of it) to God.

He used me to write this story. He knew I was listening. He knew I could type and he knew I could publish. He knew I could create a beautiful cover for it and he knew I would publicize his efforts for him.

Dandy Lion is definitely a collaboration between God and I.

If you have ever written a story without an approved outline…
If you’ve ever finished a letter without knowing how it was going to end…
If you’ve ever written a song without knowing the tune…
If you’ve ever painted a sky without seeing it first…

Then you collaborated with God!

    Wow!
    You have a real gift with words! I too give God the credit for my art works.
    I love the beautiful sunsets that God shows me, but I can only TRY to paint one.
