In this next series of art work by Paul Boecher, I’m focusing in on some of the details of one painting and how they all come together to form a completed painting. Paul will tell you that he never feels his paintings are finished. Many times he will return to one he hasn’t touched in years, always finding a new piece of the puzzle. The same is true in any of the arts as we search for story through creative channel.

Our world consists of puzzlements, of stories yet to unfold,

Each simple piece will fit somewhere, the complex are like pure gold,

Each facet has a shape and life, joyfully taking its place,

Joyous to be a part of things, dependent on time and space.

A puzzle, story, a painting, are ways we express ourselves,

But soon they become like useless things, collecting dust on our shelves,

The pieces that make the work whole collectively make it grand,

If we could join all of the pieces, imagine how strong we’d stand.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
