"The Rumble of Thunder" 12x24 inch original oil painting


Some storms catch us off guard in a sudden downpour but others we can see coming. The sound of thunder rumbles through the sky and we watch the dark clouds closer. It gives us some time to prepare. As we see a storm approaching in our lives, we can prepare ourselves emotionally, too. Of course, there are always parts we don’t foresee, and the storm will be brutal regardless, but knowing the process helps us know it will pass in time. Some day we will be on the other side, with a new perspective and deeper compassion and love. Knowing it’s coming is still scary and there’s still a lot to face but we can find others who have weathered similar storms and together we can help one another through.

“The Rumble of Thunder” is an original oil painting on stretched canvas. It measures 12x24x1.5 inches and displays horizontally. It will be dry and ready for shipping in mid-July. I will ship as soon as it is safe to do so without marring the fresh paint. 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.
