Silver Lining

10″x8″ oil on panel

Silver linings don’t come without rain clouds.

Here is my sketch. I painted on a panel primed with fluorescent pink acrylic. You can see the underpainting peeking through all the grey of this painting.

Beauty, Grown in Silence

6″x6″ oil on panel

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.” -Mother Teresa

Today is Valentines Day and Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. I am eliminating social media from my life this lent to make room for more silence. I can’t promise I will be able to touch souls, but I will make room for the possibility.
