Its 2 in the morning, I had spent several hours this afternoon looking thru and organizing all of Daves email art, I started to get sadder and sadder.
I kinda started to feel like not only did I lose a close friend, ....but also after looking through all that art of Daves that a chapter in Red Dog was closing.
I have been building guitars so long that in the last few years since i moved to nevada, a lot of the spark for my creativity was left in puerto rico. Many times I would go months without building and it was Dave who would send me art out of the blue and just a glimpse of one of his dogs would encourage me and I would get out in the shop and start building or recording again.
anyways - I was just wrapping up my emails and watching random stuff on youtube feeling kinda sad, plus all the baggage i have let in and picked up ....the weight of the world, way too many alex jones podcast, rent, covid .....Daves passing. all that jazz...
........ and my spirit was instantly quickened and I felt the Holy Spirit speak to my heart, it was so clear.
He said, "you don't need Dave to draw you a dog anymore, try one yourself"
I was like what, I must be nuts why am i thinking that???? I said to myself "I don't know how to draw that kind of art... I have never tryed
....and so calmly I heard a slight voice impress on me, "pick up a pencil and try"
there was right here at the desk, paper pencil and all..... and I just leaned over and drew this dog right out of the blue, first try in like 5 minutes!!!!!
first attempt no mistakes!!!
It's like Tom Waits music just came out of my fingertips
I always wanted a dog with sunglasses like Billy Gibbons and I just some how never asked Dave...the dark glasses were the first part I drew, it just came out so easy!
God is Good, I have a smile from ear to ear!
Diamond Dave is alive!
I am going to bed now, I just wanted to share
God is Good! - If He tells you it can be done, you can do it!
