I had an idea about STOCK CARDS where a person could own a one foot section of The Revelation Painting for one year.  I thought this would give people with families or students trying to go to college an opportunity to make money for a modest investment.  The more I thought about it, I realized that if a person had $100.00 ($110.00 because of associated fees and shipping), to invest, they were probably not needing the money as bad as someone who does not have it.

I don’t think I will push the STOCK CARDS to hard.  I think that I will give them to people I know need help in some way.  The cards are on their way and I cannot wait to give them to people!  I feel like how the Grinch felt when “his heart grew ten times that day”.  Currently I have nothing and either do the people who will receive the cards.  We can only hope for the best and hope this painting explodes in value.  The first place I will travel is Africa to wrestle a lion!

Some time back I had watched a Discovery Channel show about orphaned baby elephants.  Did you know that elephants travel great distances to die in the elephant graveyard?  It’s a place full of old, and new elephant bones.  The show captured a baby elephant who went to the elephant graveyard.  He rummaged around the bones until he found one that he stood over and swung his head back and forth.  Tears poured from his eyes.  It was so sad but ultimately beautiful.

The snow is falling today.  When I got off work this morning there were frosted snowflakes on the windows of my car.  While I waited for the car to warm up, I took pictures of them with my cell phone.  The colors where sparkling blues, greens, yellows, oranges, just about every color of the rainbow.  Although I was freezing and tired, it wasn’t too much to sit for 10 minutes trying to capture the sparkle and magic of it all.  I think that is otherwise known as “smelling the roses”.

I studied the amazing natural designs and stunning details.  The colors were what I imagined God to be in The Revelation Painting.  The closest thing I know to that effect is hologram glitter.  It has every color of the rainbow within it.  Diamonds of course have that effect to but are not only out of my reach, I do not think I would give diamond thieves the satisfaction even if I had the money for them.  Search blood diamonds and see the stories.

I will be moving the 4 canvases down today and replacing them with 4 wooden canvases and start working on God.  I imagine this morning inspired me to start working on it.  I was going to work in the other direction since some of the work on those canvases was done long ago.  Maybe it is a better approach to work from start to finish in the direction of the painting, as I have already seen that the black horse is bigger than my original sketch and measurements in The Journal of Measures.

The need to sleep is overwhelming almost every time I try to paint.  I have set goals and am forcing myself to paint even if I do not think I can.  In effort to get relief, I built a page into the website called GIVE/TAKE where not only did I list the things needed to complete the painting, but I listed avenues for corporate sponsorship.  Hopefully someone will take an interest in the painting and support me enough to allow for restful painting instead of fatigued painting.  I am prepared either way.
