"Running From the Storm" 2x3 inch original oil painting


Sometimes the storms we face look so big and ominous we want to run. Nobody enjoys going through hard things. Growth can be painful. Facing the storm is hard and sometimes we don’t have the strength right away. Running for a bit and taking some time to prepare is okay as long as we eventually turn around and face it, let the storm work on us, and change our hearts.

“Running From the Storm” is an original oil painting on oil paper. It is framed in a 2x3 inch gray enameled frame. The frame rests on a shelf and displays horizontally. 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.
