Lift Up Your Head

Updated: Apr 13, 2022

Trying something new. This time around, I painted the darkness first--painted most of the canvas black, then I added the light.

I worked from a photo I snapped on one of my prayer walks...I had been deeply engrossed in thought, finding as I often do that my eyes were on the ground, when I heard "lift up your head" and saw the light streaming through.

Amazing how lifting your head can adjust your perspective. And I was reminded in painting this that when the shadows are the darkest, it's means the light is most visible as well. Good stuff!
