The Gift of Grief

Impressionism, Oil on Canvas, Sold

This one was titled Grief. 
“The loss of a dream, a hope, direction, the loss of peace, the struggle with forgiveness: how do I deal with this? How do I let go? How do I have hope? ”Now it is called The Gift of Grief. 
Sometimes the loss of the hope, the dream, the direction, the loss of peace, is the instigator for change. Change hurt; but it has sprouted new growth, new life, new possibilities, new and renewed hope.
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19

Things have been tough but I am working through all the challenges in life, trying to find my way through the mud and floods, but I am again finding peace, through the grace of God. 
After a visit to The Entrance to spend time with a great group of friends, and seeing the divine beauty of the area, I was inspired to paint a couple of quick and restful pieces.
