These are some pictures I took today on my trip to the post office. I drive by these things so often and don't even notice them.... but today I purposely took my camera with us. The above I call 'Greenbay Truck'.
I have read a really good book in the past that really inspired me. It's called "The Creative Life" by Alice Bass. I want to share some of the things she mentions in her book in this and up coming posts.
Here is another picture of the truck...simple black and white..but speaks to me of a more simpler time. All of these are original pictures that I took and then digitally altered (the funny color ones.)
Here are some passages from the book; ' The foundation for our creativity is our Creator. Because we are made in the image of God, our creativity and our faith are intertwined. To enjoy a creative life we need to be free to experience more of Christ's inspiration and less of our own inhibitions...'
...'Imagination is part of our nature: we solve problems, we relate to others, we come up with ideas, we make guesses,we are resourceful, we dream and fantasize...'
(Wisconsin Lawn Art)
The last paragraph really hit home for me. I always have this idea of the 'artist' type! What is the artist stereotype in your mind? Someone who looks like a Hippie?... (no offense)... We aren't supposed to look a certain way, be a certain way... We are to be who God created us to be! His word tells us we are "Fearfully and wonderfully made.."
