"Sharing the Storm" 4x12 inch original oil painting


I grew up watching storms with my grandma and, after my grandma passed, my mom. I loved snuggling up in a blanket with them and watching the gray clouds form and reform across the sky. Because I shared it with them, I wasn’t scared. In life, the storms we weather are harder when we believe we have to bear them alone. When we share them with others the burden is lighter. Others can helps us find the beauty and value in them and we become stronger together. Those storms bind us together in ways nothing else does and we are forever changed when we share them.

“Sharing the Storm” is an original oil painting on stretched canvas. It measures 4x12x1.5 inches and displays horizontally. It is ready to ship. Please select “Medium 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.
