He writes of generosity.
How generosity and art go together.
Only weeks left until I take my little girl to another town and leave her there to go to college.
As I’m reading Linchpin and then looking at her, a weighty joy sets on me.
Perhaps, almost for certain, the most generous gift of art I will ever bestow on the world is this girl. This beautiful person.
It hurts a lot to let her go, but art hurts-good when you share it.
To all my mom friends –the ones with the ornery boys and the ones with the girls in twirly dresses –you wear a smock every day.
Artist’s smocks look messy for a reason.
What do you want the gallery of the world to receive when you present to it your child –your masterpiece?
(Good will come to him who is generous. Psalm 112:5 NIV)
