This might be a little heavy, or even strange, but do you ever feel like you are "channelling" someone?
Lately I have been painting. Now, keep in mind, I have never picked up a brush until a few months ago. But now, I paint whenever I get a free hour or so.
I am not saying that these paintings are "all that." But they are far better than anything I have ever thought I was capable of. Interestingly, my grandmother was an artist, as was her daughter (my aunt) and my dad painted a little bit, but I only know of one painting he did. They have all passed. Grandma has been gone since 1981 and Dad passed in 2005. Aunt Ruth did a few years ago.
But are they guiding me somehow?
I have no doubt that this, like all talents, is God-given. But why now? Hmmm.
Here is a sample of some of the paintings. Again, do not expect Van Gogh.
