BURMESE CAT ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

Burmese Cat, original watercolor painting is 7.75 X 9.75 inches on Arches 140 pound watercolor paper. 

"Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, Who walk according to the Law of the Lord."  (Psalm 119:1)  [Psalm 119 is an acrostic with every letter of the Hebrew alphabet representative of our divine walk in 8 verses each.]
  
The first letter is Aleph (the Ox) which is a gentle animal raised for service and used for blood sacrifice.  Jesus also was raised as a young man to grow strong for service, his life ending in the ultimate blood sacrifice.

It is by Jesus' sacrifice that we are blameless, and in following in the footsteps of Jesus --through his truth, his spirit and his grace that we are blessed.

MY NEIGHBOR'S IRISES ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

My Neighbor's Irises...original watercolor painting is 8 x10 inches.   This made me think about this poem, which is about roses, but the meanings is just the same....


THE ROSES RED upon my neighbor's vine
Are owned by him, but they are also mine.
His was the cost, and his the labor, too,
But mine as well as his the joy, their loveliness to view.

They bloom for me and are for me as fair
As for the man who gives them all his care.
Thus I am rich, because a good man grew
A rose-clad vine for all his neighbors' view.

I know from this that others plant for me,
And what they own, my joy may also be.
So why be selfish, when so much that's fine
Is grown for you, upon your neighbor's vine.
Abraham Gruber
