A Servant's Heart - Work in progress
A Servant's Heart | detail | oil on canvas
Here's another detail of the commission I'm working on. It's coming along pretty nicely.
Servants do their best with what they have. The nut and the nail are the symbols which represent that in the painting. Servants don't make excuses, procrastinate or wait for better circumstances. They just do what needs to be done. They do the best they can with what they have. Less than perfect service is always better than good intentions.
Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap. - Ecclesiastes 11:4
