Fall has begun, yet it is hiding behind the lingering heat of summer. The weather is as turbulent as spring and I find my thoughts in constant prayer for those in harms way. There is something both terrifying and mystifying about disastrous weather, we can truly see how helpless we as people are in the face of hurricane, tornado, or flood. Here in my studio, I am still at work trying to busy my mind and focus on something beautiful in order to keep my heart from constantly worrying about my children in the path of the hurricane. I have faith God will keep them safe, but my mother’s heart still wants to go and make them come home with me.
The latest piece was just finished up this week. Pink Pearls and Paper Fish is acrylic on a 60 x 45 inch cradled wood panel. This did not start out to be a watery painting but somehow in the midst of all of the hurricanes and rains it just morphed. When I am asked what I paint I always answer, I paint my life. This is my life right now, weather has always guided my family as farmers, but on occasion it stops us in our tracks and reminds us who is truly in charge in this world.
Prayers for all in harms way and their families who are waiting and watching from far away places.
As always thank you for reading my blog. I appreciate your time!
