On YouTube there was an artist showing how to mix the color Indigo. She dipped her brush in water, then mixed it with the black on her palette and said,
“this is indigo.” I was horrified!
So off to Blick (art store) I went, to get a tube of Indigo.
The store did not sell it anymore, but told me Indigo is a mix/layers of
Raw Sienna (not orange, but closer to Ochre), and Cobalt Blue (not any blue!). A vibrant color instead of watered down black.
Needed Indigo because it is one of the colors of the rainbow sky
in my 3rd big painting (9 x 7 feet) “The Red Line.”
Excited when Blick’s instructions worked.

Or, press the three horizontal lines –

Showing Indigo is NOT a watered down black, gives me the opportunity
TO CONSIDER another misconception.
Have a Masters degree in Psychology and Religion (if you wonder why in the world I address this subject). I wouldn’t have, but has to do with my painting the Red Line.

If you believe God is the Creator
it means you view children as a gift from God.
Not only when it’s comfortable,
the right time, or beneficial to you.
It is a MISCONCEPTION that abortion
has to do with standing up
for yourself ( slavery has long gone
from the Western world).
Now, women have rights.
They can become anything,
even a president, or marry anyone. It has become hypocritical
for 90 %, to abort “because” sex was forced upon
them. Women DO have a choice!
If this child would grow up to be a potato -or apple peeler, would it not be worth saving her life?

What you may not know: abortion is in essence “child sacrifice!”
Child sacrifice is as old as the god Ba-al has been around, (when the Bible was written 2000 years ago).
Killing a baby is child sacrifice.
While painting the 9 x 7 feet “the Red Line,”
it became more and more clear
that when a child is killed, we also squash the PURPOSE of that child.
A child is one from conception on. Not just a layer of tissue – “it”- is a person,
till he or she is born.

If the opportunity has been given
for a child to live,
he or she can become a lawyer,
a doctor, a farmer,
a techie, a builder, a nurse, a firefighter.
Who would think of trampling the little bud of
what is now this stunning Camellia?
Since the movie “Unplanned”
(hope that is the title!) came out
half a year after I had painted the Red Line,
public opinion started changing.
I could not be happier!
Okay to agree or disagree. This is the more serious side of life, but I cannot live with lies or hypocrisy, and pretend
its not there.
With an opposite opinion,
please be civil and fair
If you have had an abortion, ask God for forgiveness, and he forgives you!
Aborted children go to heaven (you can kill the body, but not a person’s spirit. A number of people have seen them in dreams or visions in heaven)
