THIS IS A REPOST FROM 5 YEARS AGO TODAY. THIS YOUNG LADY MEANS A LOT TO ME. SHE IS ONE OF THE MOST CONFIDENT, SWEETEST, HELPFUL LADIES I HAVE EVER MET. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE NICE TO SHARE HER TALENT WITH SOME OF MY NEWER READERS.
Webster's dictionary defines art as the conscious use of skill and creative imagination especially in the production of aesthetic objects.
To me, a truly great artist is one who makes you want to step inside the painting and spend the day. I recently had the honor to speak with a teenager in my church, who happens to be our Pastor's daughter. Lindsey Compton has one of those rare raw talents in the art field. When I asked her if she had taken art classes, her answer was "Well, yes and no. There's a guy on TV who teaches how to paint using different brush strokes. So I watched him and tried it." I've watched that show and could never in a million years recreate what he was doing. Lindsey has a special gift of putting her visions on canvas in such a way that leaves you wanting to step inside. To have this kind of talent as a teenager is amazing to me. I, for one, hope she sticks with this and that we see her paintings in art shows some day. She was kind enough to allow me to debut a few of her paintings on here today. I hope you enjoy them, but please do not duplicate or use since these are her copyrighted originals. Enjoy!
