Christmas Crossing by Mark Keathley

06313 2 Christmas Crossing

November 2016

Christmas is just about everyone’s favorite time of year. Most folks are busy preparing and enjoying the holiday traditions with the family. The anticipation of getting together with loved ones we haven’t seen for months or years gets the excitement going as well as sharing special food and gifts.  Sometimes, we need to break out and do something different, though, like invite an estranged son or daughter, forgive someone who offended you, or see someone else in a new light. Christmas Crossing is about coming on over from the side we have always been on -  building a bridge to those who are hurting or who have hurt us.  Instead of nursing our own hurt, anger, or jealousy, come on across and give some much needed love and grace. It has to start with someone; it might as well be you and me.   --Mark Keathley

Iron Horse by Mark Keathley

Iron Horse

October 2016

I was painting in the mountains north of Durango last fall along the Animas River, and all of a sudden, I heard the train blow its whistle! Oh my! Sitting right there on the side of the tracks painting the river, I thought this would be quite the spectacle - me trying to move my easel far enough away to feel safe with them barreling down the track. It had snuck up on me because he was on the down hill direction from Silverton to Durango and hadn’t been using much steam. It was surprising how quiet he was coming. Every year, they have a race from Durango to Silverton (from 6300 feet above sea level to over 10,000 feet above sea level) between bikers and the train. It’s a close call every year. In commemoration of all those strong legs and lungs - IRON HORSE - a study painting for a future studio painting and published edition.

New Day by Mark Keathley


October 2016

Sometimes, the craziness of life can cause us to want to sleep in and put the world on hold so we don’t have to face the hard things in life. We often find ourselves with no help and no hope – feeling all alone even when there are kids or crowds or family all around us. We want to be heard, to be appreciated, and to be helped through these difficult times. I want this painting to remind you that His mercies are new every morning! All that we ever need is right at our fingertips… no, it is right inside us. We are encouraged to put on all the things that are available to us in Jesus. His joy is readily available to flow through us. The next time you wake up and life hits you like a ton of bricks, take a moment to look into the LIGHT, “The Life that is the Light of Men.” Receive from Him all He has to offer. He loves you. He adores you. He wants to help you. You are His delight. It’s a NEW DAY!
