Lesson Five - Gestalt

Keep  a Day Star in Your Heart

This is a painting I did of our old home place, now in ruins, as it was when I was a child. The sun is setting on that era and is shown with a shaft of light shooting through the middle of it at dusk.  The buffalo in the foreground with the calf at its feet is a registering of the return of the buffalo to the area via the "Tallgrass Prairie Preserve."  The calf is a promise of new life in a hope that maybe some one of that branch of the family will pick up on the great sacrifices their forefathers made for them.

I title the painting, "Keep a Day Star in Your Heart." This gifted thought I leave to my heirs. One does not need to possess in order to be blessed with the work and knowledge our Father gave to us.

Format is the round canvas to symbolize a going on forever, as family has been shown to do.

Price is not a lofty 300,000 as those of my more gifted peers.  Still, I won't let it go for less than 10,000.
