48x48 oil on gallery wrapped canvas
This piece was done during the self-isolation time of the Coronavirus pandemic. The world felt like it had turned upside down. And there were so many unknowns and what ifs to deal with. It felt very dark and overwhelming.
But the things is, in the midst of this strange world we all found ourselves in, it was Spring, and the grass was still turning green, the buds were forming on trees, and the flowers were still blooming. This constant brought me a lot of comfort, because it is a reminder to me that the God who made all of nature is still there and still an unchanging anchor for our souls.
One of the Psalms that I found myself returning to again and again during this time was Psalm 46
“ God is our refuge and our strength
A very present help in times of trouble
Therefore, I will not fear,
Though the earth should change,
Though the mountains slip into the sea....
Be still and know that I am God
And I will be exalted in the earth.”
It is amazing to me that a simple little flower can be a reminder to us of such hope, because in the midst of a world turned upside down, they are still blooming.
Larger works of art like this are taken off the stretcher bars and rolled up to be shipped in a tube. This better protects the painting from damage while shipping and also provides the collector a more cost effective shipping method.
When your artwork arrives, simply take it to a framing shop to have it mounted, once again, to the wooden stretcher bars. This is a simple procedure that any reputable framer will be able to perform.
