Sandcastles & the Sistine Chapel

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.
Matthew 7:24-27 (Parable of the Wise and Foolish Builders)
I have constructed a business that fits me.
It's kind of crazy to spend your life painting, if you're painting a subject you don't want to look at.
I've gotten to paint my own painting in business on an unlimited canvas...it's not work to me, it's just a form of play.
