Last week we spent a couple of days in the blue mountains with family. We stayed in this amazing place called Silvermere. It was so spectacularly tranquil, surrounded by beautiful gardens and this lovely fish pond. One night I went for a walk and just sat on the deck praying and was overcome by the most tremendous peace. The peace that surpasses all understanding. I was reminded to focus on Him and everything can wash away as unimportant. Waterlillies of Silvermere.
This painting is of a beautiful little lagoon in Arrawarra, on the midcoast of NSW. It was one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have ever been. I started painting this on the first day my son went to preschool, sadly the next day I had a major accident and didn’t paint again for a long time. It took me over a year to finish this, possibly up to 100 hours and 4 surgeries later. I call this painting “Finding Peace” because it was a very difficult year and a very difficult process: a true journey for me of finding peace.
