I’m thanking God today for a (hopeful) end of my long dry spell in painting. It has been over two years that I have had an inspired painting completed. This new painting called “Hope” was inspired by all the tears that have been shed in the past two years for the pandemic and in particular the war in Ukraine. Both sets of my grandparents emigrated from the Southern Russia/Ukraine areas. The abstract painting show tears and a hopeful glint of light in the background.
A friend prayed me through my last painting of Daisy Ejang called Restoration, which I donated for a fundraiser for Women Refreshed at the Well, a local spiritual retreat ministry.
My particular inspirations are evident when I get the “urge”, which usually means that I dream about a painting, wake up with a strong visual in my mind to paint, or just go on a walk and a meaningful picture unfolds in my brain.
Another happy thing is that I can use the containers of paints that have been drying up in my studio, and some unused canvasses! O happy day!
It is difficult to show art in person nowadays, so you can check out the video below to see the price and the painting up close…
