Sometimes the BEST thing that can happen is for your plans to fall through!
James Whistler painted a portrait of his mother that is quite possibly the most recognized painting in the world. Whistler had hired a model to stand in this room for the painting but when the woman failed to show up he decided to ask his mother to pose instead. Mrs. Whistler was frail however and after a while she had to have a chair in which to sit.
Thus one of the most famous profiles in art history was created. The portrait is officially titled: Arrangement in Grey and Black-Portrait of the Artistâ€™s Mother yet it is known even round the world as: â€œWhistlerâ€™s Motherâ€.
Q: Would we know this painting if it were titled: â€œArrangement in Grey and Black: Portrait of an Anonymous Modelâ€?
Has anyone youâ€™ve been counting on dropped the ball and spoiled your plans?
Perhaps you are encountering a God-given opportunity to take your plans in a different direction that will turn out for the best.
The ancient book of proverbs says:
