The Still and Quiet Wood (bigger)
I had done a little mini 6x6 of this piece but wanted to do it bigger. I have been thinking a lot about mood and putting feeling into a painting. This one has a set mood with just the three trees, mist and simple coloring.
Seems kinda fitting to my life just as it was when I painted the 6x6. I don't know what is in these woods. It's unknown and feels a bit lonely. Although I've felt a bit down as of late (after my surgery) I am also trying to wait patiently on God's timing, not mine. It's hard when I want to get back to my life. Yet, there is a sweetness here in the waiting. I get to see God reach out His hand and love me, right where I am.
I've been trying to ask myself, "what am I learning while I wait? what is God showing me?" and I hope to share some of that with you in the next few weeks as Jesus and I start to walk up the valley.
