This piece was inspired from a photo I had taken while on vacation in Italy many years ago. Years later, as my walk with God progressed, I came upon this image and saw something entirely different than what the photo was. I felt led to create this painting and share it’s message with others.
The extreme contrast of the bright, warm light shining into this dark, cold cavernous space with new green growth wrapped around dark brown metal bars was beyond striking! God revealed to me that Jesus dying on the cross and rising again gives us hope in our darkest times. It amazes me how He shows up in everything if we will only take the time to notice. He is our light in the darkness, may this image encourage you and point you to Him.
