ROSES IN A STORM- sold
Below is a lovely message I received from the new owner of ROSES IN A STORM and below that is a little background story on the piece and a poem that the painting spoke to me.
"I opened my special package last night. I didn't do it for a few days because I wanted to pick a moment where there wasn't hustle and I could be alone to soak in the divine moment of connecting with Roses in a Storm. It was all that I imagined it to be and more. Inspired beauty and strength and how honored I am...
Your artistry is stunning, captivating, and magical. And you can quote me on that."
Here's a post from Instagram I wrote while this painting was still in progress - it includes a poem that the painting spoke to me:
I have been working on this painting on and off for a couple years. It has been many things but at some point last year I was outside in a huge, powerful thunderstorm and saw beautiful rose bushes just getting lashed by the wind and rain.
There was something about the experience and image that got stuck in me and so I think it came out in this painting.
I thought last week I was pretty close to finishing this- and then this week I had a couple difficult days and tried to paint and it ended up that I basically thought I'd ruined it. Which helped my difficult days not so much.
But I've also been witness this past week to other people's resilience-their beautiful strong spirits-in the midst of storms so powerful they can shake anyone's faith. So when I looked at this painting again today with fresh eyes and my heart feeling tired, raw, washed out, and ...open more than before (in that after a storm kinda way), I asked it [the painting] again,
"What are you about?"
And the words that came are the words I want to keep in my heart during those storms in life that shake you to your core, and they are words I want others to have to hold onto, to hear and know they are true when they feel like everything is falling apart.
So, I am not sure what this painting will look like at the end of the day, but I intend that it will have the energy of these words (which I've inscribed onto the canvas and paint) that came as an answer to my question:
you will be okay.
you will weather the storm.
you are never alone.
you are so much MORE than you know.
my love for you is without end."
The painting has sold, but if you are reading this and want to keep them in your heart for a rainy day, please be my guest.
