"Pretty" Poison?


This little guy, a poison dart frog, is a submission for James Parkers’ Windows to the Words Art challenge for July. It’s “Dogs and Frogs” this month. I, for one, am thrilled! I love single subject pieces that I can really focus on. I got so excited when I saw the month’s challenge posted, I grabbed my brush and did a quick sketch. My son saw it sitting there on my easel and claimed it before I had even started painting. Made my day. Now those of you who follow my blog know by now that I have to add in a little devotional thought to go with this guy. So, here it is… the struggle in life is to let ourselves be attracted to true beauty, not just the shiny package…. or in this case, the bold bright colors. I, for one, am a sucker for color. I guess the lesson is that sometimes it’s best to “look but don’t touch.”
🙂 God’s blessings!
