"A Time of Healing" 5x7 inch original oil painting


After the storm has passed and the gray clouds are drifting away, I love looking out across the fields. The grasses that took a beating are lifting, strengthening, and the greens are much more vivid. It’s a time of healing and rebuilding. When the storms of life take us out for a while, it can feel like we’ll never laugh again; we’ll never even smile again. We’re forever changed. Once the clouds clear, though, the healing can begin. We rest a while, we do everday things, we reach out to people who love us. In time our strength returns, we stand straighter, taller than we were before, with eyes full of newfound love and compassion. It’s a process and takes time but in the end we are better and more beautiful for it.

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.
