Peace. Be Still.

I paint while listening to news.

“Peace. Be Still.” – 10″x 14″ – Oil

This is my first one for 2021.

If anything, there is a reason for Trust.

On one of my trips to Miss. I stopped at the cemetery near New Orleans, an impressive tribute to the aching in people’s hearts. I photographed a statue of an angel mounted atop a mausoleum. I removed the wings, but suggested they are still there. (I think angel “wings” in art are symbolic of flight. But that’s another story.)

Right now it seems there is a tremendous aching in our hearts – for our loved ones, for our Nation, for our President, our world. There is a call for believing God, in Jesus…

Be still, in the rest that only He can give. Lord, bring us into Your Peace.
