"A Place of Hope and Safety" 20x24 inch original oil painting


I grew up watching storms come and go from the comfort of my grandma’s lap. We would sit snuggled in a blanket and watch the swirling clouds pass. It’s hard to feel safe and find beauty in the storm when rain is pounding on your face because you're in the middle of it, but from the outside your perspective shifts and thing can become more clear. As the storm fades and we are in a place of safety, we gain hope and see the growth that comes from the incessant rain. It takes time and some distance to appreciate the value that came from the storm but when we do, we become better people; stronger, more compassionate, and with a deeper understanding and love for others weathering their own storms. We can become a place of hope and safety for them.

“A Place of Hope and Safety” is an original oil painting on stretched canvas. It measures 20x24x1.5 inches and displays vertically. It is ready to ship. Please select “Large 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.
