This painting is beautiful in every way, Ken. I see it as this beautiful little tree wanst to be tall and strong like the others in the forest. Yet, it's light shines forth like no other. We all have our own unique style and each of us can shine like this little tree. Wonderful!

Ken Day replied:

How ever sweet are you and your words Gretchen. I so appreciate you and them. Thank you, thank you !!! We all have the light to shine in the dark. It's know at light inside of us that makes us shine. It starts with a little glow and becomes a light for all to see out of the darkness. You are a bright and shining light Gretchen. Thank you for shine upon my life.

This is such a very inspirational image with this unique tree doing a dance! I do see it dancing.......L/F.

Ken Day replied:

Thank you Shirley for seeing and saying what I see. When walk through a dark woods and happening on a ray of light shining through the tree what the light touches does dance. For the light is not only on them but in then. Their spirit comes alive where once it was silent. They in turn shine that light upon us in their beautiful dance of delight. A spirit uplifted out of darkness be a beautiful light.

Thank you ever so kindly Victoria.

Soddy Daisy, TN - United States

This bush or tree, Ken, almost looks like it is "on fire", it is so full of light! This, to me, is reminiscent of the story of "the burning bush" in Exodus, where Moses sees on Mount Horeb a bush that is full of fire, and yet it is not consumed! When Moses goes to get closer to it to inspect it, God (or Yahweh) instructs him to take off his shoes, because the place he is standing on is Holy Ground! I feel that way, sometimes, when I am beholding some of God's awesome handiwork--that I should take my shoes off and know that the place I am standing on is sacred--it is Holy Ground! Thank you, Ken, for sharing the Creator's message of Hope with us! Lovely work!

Ken Day replied:

Thank you ever so much Kimberlee for such a beautiful comment. I see it as God shining though us. The light of hope even in the darkness of places. I understand your way of viewing it. But for me I always viewed "the burning bush" in Exodus as binging a bush all on its own above all other plant life. In a rocky place not fitting for a plant to grow. For the brilliant of this bush in Exodus would scorch the grow around it leaving only rocks as even the soil would dry up and be blown away as dust. This is only my view and not baste on any facts Probably mainly do to see the movie The Ten Commandments when I was a kid. It make sense to me that the bush in Exodus would have no plant life standing over it. Much like, if not so a throne. As for Holy Ground I think it all was that way and still remains much that way in nature. That's why you get an amazing feeling found no where less when taking a walk in nature.

Ken Day replied:

That's why I think it feels so good when you take your shoes off in fresh new spring grass before it has been cut and how natural and good it feels to run without shoes outside. Like life was met to be lived that way. Moreover how God intended us to receive his gift. Our feet are connected to every part of our body. Not jest outside but every part of us. Each place of our foot play a major part in the well being of the rest of us. Also in all the function of our brain. I think God has lots of reason for us to take our shoes off. I thing is another real connection to God we shouldn't miss out on. Keeping our feet from touching the ground has must likely had a profound effect upon our lives and kept us from many of the gifts that God has to offer. If you play music or sing Marcia try doing it outside without shoes and you'll fine a love you never known. You find a new meaning to warm sand between your feet at the beach or putting you feel into mountain stream water when you keep God in mind. Blest be your life Kimberlee and kick those shoes off whenever you can.

Massillon, OH - United States

Ken Day replied:

Thank you Marcia that's what I try to convey

St. Louis, MO - United States

Stunning image and great message! This painting has such a quality about it. The light coming forth through the forest and the branches reaching up to the sky instantly bring the message of hope. Great work Ken!!! v/f

Ken Day replied:

Thank you Genevieve. I try my best to inspire others in anyway I can. Though I love painting many things it's the beauty of nature the beautiful gift from God I love the best. I paint to reach deep inside people hearts and pullout the beauty inside. Some feelings people might not have felt in along time. My next painting is very inspiring in so many ways and will bring you back to your childhood stories and the happiness they give you.

Oh Ken...this is sooo sweet, just like you! It shines with a magical light! I think you have the brightest, positive way in the world and I wish for you only light and goodness! That tree is divine...with those delicate branches and sweet autumn leaves! L/F

Ken Day replied:

Thank you ever so very much my sweet friend Sandi. It you love this tree your going to stand in awe of the one I'm working. It shines with life and lights up the world. It a view from my studio window but of how the view looked 800 years ago. You feel me in this little tree Sandi nut you'll know me in the next. All the good thoughts in me come out in this next painting. I feel the need to paint from the light within me. To paint from the heart. If one creates from deep within their heart, the light that shine there people with see it and love it for the light that it is. Live life from the heart Sandi and the light that shines in it as you already do and the light will come shining back at you ten fold. You have really brightened my day Sandi with the light that you are. God bless you Sandi and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Revisiting this beautiful spiritual painting Ken ..took another L/F

Ken Day replied:

Thank you Sharon. Light is the key to this one.

Desert Hot Springs, CA - United States

Hope in the darkness. Like constant great controversy in our lives, we all experience it. If we do not limit our faith to our sight, If we learn to go by faith... we can develop our faith and our Creator gives His merits to it and we experience peace, joy and triumph. Ken, this of your painting with its simplicity, is capturing the hope in this controversy. Marguerite

Ken Day replied:

Thank you for such a lovely comment as this Marguerite. We all trivial in dark places now and then. And for good reason, for if light ( Faith) is in you. You must go in darkness some times for how are those in darkness to find the way out without lights there to guide them and give them hope ? For if one can have hope in darkness many will see the hope shining through them.

Pueblo, CO - United States

Beautifully done, Ken. The title is perfect for this bright spot in the dark. v/f

Ken Day replied:

Thank you Lenore. It can mean many things to many people but what I see in it is hope. Hope against all odds because the light shine through and is within us. So we glow of the light found in us that it might give light to others. You have a glow about you Lenore and it shines through in your artwork. No darkness is too big or too great if you stand within the light. For even darkness will stand in awe of the power of light.
