“Hope”Yellow Rose. Acrylic on blocked canvas, size: 24″ x 30” (60.9cm x 76.20cm). Rom 15:13
When lockdown officially started in South Africa at the end of March 2020, the initial surreal “wow”, “can it be?” and “it’s so quiet!” wore off to make room for concern and “how are we going to ride this out?” thoughts. This is when “Hope” was born and I thoroughly enjoyed painting her. As she took form, she reminded me to take one day at a time and always, actively, seek out beauty. Hope is so close to my heart. I pray that the promise of hope will always be yours.
