My Favorite Artist
By Cinda M Carter
Who is my favorite artist?…
A question not often approached.
My favorite artist captures the whole picture.
He creates a picture with an image according to plans.
From a blank page, He begins…
He starts from scratch with an imagination.
In his thinking, it needs to be planned.
Getting the essential supplies at hand.
First the canvas…
Then the basic outline or drawing.
Colors that escalate off the canvas.
The plan is in motion for all to see.
Created with this in consideration…
He moves his hands over the canvas with ease.
With soft hues of color in the sky.
Divided between the sun by day and moon by night.
Everything begins to turn green with the grass…
Flowers take shape with a multitude of colors.
The waters are created, separated from the land.
He makes gentle strokes with his brush in his painting.
Small little animals of different kinds…
With fish of every kind in the sea.
Seasons are created by God’s plan.
Giving us spring, summer, fall and winter.
His best creation of all in this picture is man…
The picture is missing something though,
What could it possibly be?
A mate for the man in her beauty, called woman.
The master artist stands back and gazes at His painting…
I believe it is made complete,
Just one last thing for it to be finished,
The signature on the canvas of, “My Favorite Artist.”
Can you guess who he might be?
No one other, than our Lord and Savior.
All things created in His image.
He is the God of all creation.
Signed, sealed and delivered…
For all mankind to see.
The artwork of the master painter finished on canvas,
By the unseen hand of our loving, Heavenly Father.
