People have so many similarities and yet so many differences. Each of us glistens a little differently in the glorious light of God, don’t we? Have you ever walked through a garden or even a farmer’s market and really looked at all of the varieties of shapes and sizes a specific fruit or vegetable can have? It is quite amazing, really. Even in my grand love for drawing fruits and vegetables with my charcoals, I was astounded at the photographs my art teacher put up of his artwork. These were our sources for drawing. Sometimes he put photographs of actual fruits and vegetables and demonstrated how to draw them. Believe me, I needed a lot of help. Sometimes it is the same way with me when I am trying to understand other people. I forget that each person has their own unique thoughts, ideas, and ways of looking at even an identical event.
In my art class I saw that each student drew the same things in slightly different ways. It even works that way with photography. So here, today, is my little sketch of cherry tomatoes. Personally I think it’s quite cute. But I don’t think it has the pizzazz of my Onions (so famous for my onions, right?) or the enchanting essence of a shiny-spotted apple. But they are cherry tomatoes….so delicious!
“Each of us glistens a little differently in the glorious light of God…” What a beautiful way to say something so true!
Thanks, Ellen! We are each meant to be such shining jewels in His crown for all eternity.
I like all your comments to your drawings. And cherry tomatoes are very delicious! You have to imagine them looking beautiful red!
Thanks, Uta! i wish I could draw with colored pencils the way I can draw with charcoals. But I am a drawing newcomer. Love working with the charcoals. Loved craypas as a kid, but they aren’t as forgiving as charcoals.
