What do you thank of when you here the word legacy? The first thing that comes to my mind is a sword, you see I really like swords and I have study and research them quite a bit. One of the interesting things I found out was that in the Anglo-Saxon culture fathers passed down their swords to their sons very seldom did young men going off to battle have their own new sword, it was usually their fathers weapon that had seen many battles and had stood the test of time, that was refurbished and handed down to their sons. I thank that when the son wielded his father’s weapon he could trust it with his life and know that it would not fail him in times of need. So that got me thanking what legacy am I going to leave, am I going to leave a small dagger, a flimsy rapier, or a strong broad sword. What type of legacy are you going to leave?

The Work is Done!!!!
Ok, I’m back and have more of a plan of what my blog is going to be this year, instead of me just posting random picture throughout the week my art is going to have a theme,a description, and a purpose. I will be making time lapses videos of the art in all its stages, so here is the first one of hopefully many to come.
Purity : What is purity? pure,white,clean, seeking Gods desires not are own, Free from the thoughts of this world. In art purity is usually , a white rose,a maiden, or an angle. In my painting I chose to use a white tuple because tuple petals have a wax like coating on them that stops stuff (sin) from muddying the color (purity) of the tuple.
Sin: The storm cloud in the painting is the sin trying to corrupt purity and cut is off from God notice that even though the sin is trying to hide God from us, God is always visible. The black cloth on the cross is my sin that Christ has taken away to give me purity.
Life: The red swirls at the bottom symbolize life. Life is not as dark as sin but the business of it can distract us from what matters most. God
Here is the whole painting altogether hoped you liked it please comment and let me know.
I will be giving my blog a complete overhaul and changing the way my blog is run . Hopeful it won’t take to long but I won’t be posting much tell I finish, so see you all latter and keep Standing Strong.
