A light in the Darkness

It has been a struggle to find time to create the last few months.  I finally have a designated studio space in our new house but between work, the boys, the endless amount of laundry and our basement bonus room renovations (I will post pictures soon) time has been limited. But, here and there I am creating.  And, I have been intentional about painting what I am feeling.  It has been great because for the most part I am painting for me. I'm trying create all the little stories, feeling and ideas that have been rumbling around in my head.  I think the feeling of being overwhelmed and the darkness of winter (which in Tennessee is starting to lift a little) inspired this painting.  And perhaps the solstice a bit as well. It was brewing for a while and took me a couple of months to finish it.  Scale is hard to grasp in the picture but this one is on the larger side, 24 x 36 inches on a cradled wood panel. The trees are bible pages. I just can't seem to get away from using them of late. I just love all the bible pages symbolize.
