I want it to count

When I began this piece I had no vision - no idea of what it should look like only a need to put paint to canvas. And so through the nausea of these past months I layered on color, texture, various mediums.. just doing whatever I felt when the urge struck. For months this little square has sat on my art table and I came to visit every once in a while for 10 or 30 min. at a time. Slowly, very slowly it began to turn into more. As my heart became engaged and my feelings became more clear. It became a goal or maybe more of a motto --- a wish - a reminder.  Of what I want my life to say. These words are from James 3 in the message.
