Hope in the darkness

I have been working on this painting for a long time and I finally finished it yesterday.  It started off with really dark reds in the background.  We have a lot of stress going on in life right now so it symbolized the darkness in the house.  I decided to take some of the darkness away and add light on top to give hope.  The darkness is still there in the background but there are moments of light and happiness in life as well.

    This painting is beautiful – it reminds me that even in dark times there is always hope and something to smile and laugh about. And having kids reinforces the meaning of the “circle of life”. We are thinking of you guys and Chris’ family. Love Kathy
