Psychedelic Zebras #2 Watercolor Painting

This is a larger 14 X 20" watercolor painting of zebras, but without the tree splitting the painting in half. Another example of "just because it's there, you don't have to put it in" --to make the composition better for your painting. This painting is an example of what happens when you haven't seen the sun in five days!

My thought today is on our own uniqueness and is from Max Lucado from "Cure For The Common Life" ....
He is talking about David going mano a mano with Goliath. Goliath dressed in all his armor, over 9 feet tall, and David with a sling shot.

"...a VW bug playing blink with an eighteen wheeler, a salmon daring the grizzly to bring it on.
But David rejected the armor, selected the stones, lobotomized the giant, and taught us a powerful lesson: what fits others might not fit you....Just because someone gives you advice, a job, or a promotion, you don't have to accept it. Let your uniqueness define your path."
