"Sheltering Under Trees" 5x7 inch original oil painting


Out in the open, a heavy storm feels relentless. The rain pounds and the wind whips around. When it’s pouring, it can be nice to find a respite under trees. The shelter of branches makes the storm bearable. I think in the storms of life, we find shelter with friends and family who love us. Often they’re going through it will us and feel the icy chill of the rain, too, but in moments when they’re stronger, they can support us and help us through. In return, after a small respite, we can be a shelter for them, or others who may happen along the way. Those branches don’t make the storm go away, but the small break they provide help us gather enough strength to face the storm again.

“Sheltering Under Trees” is an original oil painting on oil paper with a deckled edge. It is mounted on canvas and framed in a 5x7inch white frame. The frame can be hung or rest on a shelf.

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.
