"Greener Fields" 2x3 inch original oil painting


I love driving around in the spring. The grass is waking up and new things are sprouting and growing. After so many months of brown, white, and gray, everything comes alive with green. Without the storms everything would stay a dry brown. Without difficult things in life, we stay stagnant. We don’t grow. Instead we begin to crust over and get stuck. As hard as the storms of life can be, they help us break the crusts that hold us in place and give us a fresh perspective. They help us develop a more complex understanding of love and compassion to share with others.

“Greener Fields” is an original oil painting on oil paper. It is framed in a 2x3 inch creamy ceramic frame. The frame can be hung or rest on a shelf and displays vertically. It is ready to ship. Please select “Small Original Painting Shipping” as your shipping option at checkout.

The Stormy Skies collection was created not only because I find incredible beauty in real storms, but also because these swirling clouds remind me of the beauty found in our personal storms. The tempests of life often come with no invitation. They are hard and sad and seemingly unending, but when we get a little distance and look back, we usually have a new perspective. If we choose to look with fresh eyes, we can see the ways we grew, how we gained deeper compassion for others, and we notice the small miracles and gifts that happened. Seeing these beautiful skyscapes every day reminds me that even in the worst hardships, there is value and beauty to be found. We just have to open our eyes and look for it.
