"Even when I didn't feel close to God, He was always there. Even though I didn't feel Him how I wanted in those moments,He was there."
My mother-in-law told me this a few weeks back. At the time, I didn't really understand what she meant.
I started working on this collection of paintings around this time. I knew that I wanted this series of paintings to be about finding peace in this chaos we're living in.
As I started working on these paintings, I realized that I wasn't feeling peace in my life. How was I suppose to create these 'peaceful' paintings when I wasn't feeling that peace in my own life or seeing peace in the world around me?
A few Sunday's later, I heard a song that I know I've heard a million times before, but this time something clicked with the lyrics.
