Our hardships test our faithfulness, and thus our pictures are our response. Just look at the photo above. You will see not the complaints but the passionate gratitude for the remaining alive.

We were awarded by Sharon Hart.

A saying goes "Happiness is like a kiss. You must share it to enjoy it" Thus let me pass these wonderful awards to all of you, dear bloggers. Thank you!

  9. Hello Thomas - I am so happy to hear from you. Thank you for your kind words. I am humbled by what you so beautifully expressed. When I was younger Thomas, I used to ask God to please allow me to portray emotions, sentiments when I painted. I didn't want to be a superficial abstract painter. I longed to paint God's glory. I don't think that I have or will ever achieve that, but I at least want God's grace to shine through my art.

    For this very reason, when I get such an incredible comment from someone, like you, it makes me feel that my purpose to be a painter is not in vain.

    Thank you again.

  10. Tomas, you have a truly beautiful, truly inspirational blog! I have always believed that life itself is art. You are making a real contribution to the blogging community.

    It is also nice to see a Lithuanian blog! My great grandmother is from Lithuania and she told me stories about Lithuania before the war.

  13. Hey, I am still recovering from my shoulder surgery, but wanted to drop by and comment on your latest post. I still read lots of posts but cannot type for extended periods of time, so my commenting is limited. I enjoyed this post and I am glad I dropped by.


  14. Yes, paintings and other forms of art are the expression of one's soul. It is the language of the heart and mind trying to convey various thoughts and emotions to his fellowmen. It is tapping from the bosom of the Great Creative Mind. I am one with you in spirit as you try to reach out to others. Thanks for the creative post. God bless you always.
