Our Abundant Blessings

(an Evangelist's witness)

What do you like? Are you one of
those people who thinks a golden sunrise
is the most beautiful of all? Or perhaps
you prefer the warm red glow of the

trying to steal a piece of time from the

some of them did capture the
moment they saw, the moment given
to them, from God, the Master
Painter.

a nuance like O'Keefe did. Many painters
have developed followings and started a style
that is easily recognized.
