“The Painting” is a work of art in itself. Gifted author Kathleen Shields, paints a colorful canvas of words in this creative and magical story. I enjoyed relating to the characters, they captured my attention throughout the book. The added dimension of Gerald’s painting sparked my imagination into a dream escape, making the story come alive. Much to my delight, that wasn’t the end of the story. I encourage you to find out what’s missing in Gerald’s perfect painting too. It may shine some light into your own life. I highly recommend this book and I’m looking forward to “The Painting 2,” the next book!
We start our lives as a blank canvas. It's our diverse experiences that add color and definition to our painting.
Gerald was given a blank canvas in which to paint anything he wanted. He painted a world. A world that he loved so much – it came to life! The personal growth and the steps Gerald took to protect his creation is what truly made him exceptional.
