My etsy shop was a feeling a little neglected these last few months with all the commissions and sales on ebay (thank you!) so I decided to perk her up with a couple little gems.

This painting was inspired by a poem by Robert Frost, The Trial by Existence. I just love this poem. To me it is .... well so much.... but basically an acknowledgement of how courageous it is just to be human. God holds us in his "especial care" because he knows how much courage it takes to plunge to earth leaving paradise behind. I named the painting The Fall because I think the poem looks at the fall of man in a different way, rather than a transgression, more as an act of valor. I did a little video below. The music is Van Morrison. The Fall is up on ebay right now.
Just remember just being here and doing the best you can is an incredible feat.

14 x 18 Acryclic On Canvas
Open The Door
I was thinking about taking the opportunities presented in life and using our wisdom to figure out what those opportunities are....opening our doors and going places that are new but a little uncomfortable.
The colors are so much richer in person but with the winter light it is not so easy to get good pix...
Thanks for coming by!
