I created ‘Into the Light’ during the start of self-isolation relative to COVID-19. At first, the painting was dark, moody and quite frankly, somewhat depressing. It bothered me. Then I took a break from painting to consider all of the positives and benefits of self-isolation and the global pandemic. I choose to not fear the future, but to respect the situation and face it head on. Seeking the lighter side of things instead of the darker side. Am I worried? You betcha. Am I afraid? No way. ‘Into the Light’ reflects that transcendence.
