Appreciating Beauty Part Two (Man Made Beauty)

This is a painting I bought from local artist Rebecca Brogan at Salamanca. She had a nightmare in which demons were attacking her and got up and praised God.

I love both the colours and the message. It is psychologically and spiritually true that if we concentrate on the positive the negative will retreat. After all it is ultimately God's world and He is the greater power.

I think it is also part of our nature to be appreciative and soothed by beauty. The more beautiful and artistic a place is the calmer I feel. This is as true of man-made beauty as it is of natural beauty.

I am especially appreciative of visual art because I have poor spatial skills and can't do it myself but I can understand the creative processs as I write and act.

Anyway to see more of Rebecca Brogan's art look out for her at Salamanca or go to

God Bless you all



  1. Oh, wow this picture is really really beautiful. how much did you pay for it?

  2. Only forty dollars and she donates the proceeds to charity.

    The pictures are all very reasonably priced and very good.

    God Bless


  3. Hi Amber,

    I couldn't help but reveling in the view outside your window above your bed in your little flat. Those glorious black swans swimming in the river.

    I really enjoyed our time together last week.

    You're true self is beginning to blossom again and it is so thrilling to see.

    Lots of love,
