TRILOGY is made up of three oil paintings symbolizing a message of hope, woundedness, and a life lived in fullness. This is the human story. For months I entrenched myself into a creative abyss, doing battle with resistance to bring forth TRILOGY. The concept for this trio of paintings came when someone I love encountered a wound in life. A vivid image of a brand new, under-developed flower came to me in prayer. It's sweet petals faced the light of the sunrise, filled with hope of what was yet to come, aspiration for life to be lived, a season to conquer, and a dream to fulfill. A second image followed, one of foreboding hardship and distress. The flower encountered a terrible blow. The wound came out of nowhere, bringing affliction and damage to it's fragile life. How would it move forward, keep reaching on? Subsequently, a third image emerged in my mind's eye. This time, the flower fully matured, was dancing wildly in the breeze. It's face lit by the sun, was illuminated in ecstasy. There were others in the background harmoniously emulating the flower as it danced gloriously. They were all thriving, exulting with joyous abandonment, fulfulling their purpose. "His secret purpose framed from the very beginning is to bring us to our full glory." 1 Corinthians 2:7 ________________________________________________________________________ HOPE - Oil on wood panel 36" x 48" x 1.75" THRIVE - Oil on wood panel 48" x 60" x 2.5" WOUND - Oil on wood panel 36" x 48" x 1.75"
