I created this multimedia painting inspired by the sunrise and the power of revelation light that dispels the darkness.
We know, based on our past that the sun has risen each morning throughout recorded history. We project, with Hope that the sun will continue to follow its pattern. A pattern we can “set our watch to”. Every dawn there is a softening of light, that slowly, but steadily, transitions the darkness away, changing the obscure, to the visible. Finally, the sun, itself crests the horizon, with a dramatic presence.
Our Hope, our need to see, even if just dimly, is universal. Sensing the emerging landscape or environment is motivating – we respond, as we engage in recognition, even if it is in an atmosphere we are familiar with. A potential trap is a fixation on what we can’t see, which can lead to fear and or anxiety. This sunrise simile with its focus on the motivational can, if we allow it, at the very least, refresh, and potentially, repurpose, and refill us.
Thank you for your interest in this work of Art. It is available as a print or the original. The Promise poem awaits below.
Begin their herald runs
Finding ways into dreams and days
Clouds anxiously await the light
Moving and changing
To study them
Exercises senses in the heart
Floating with mission
Waiting on the heralds of light
Revealing the direction we all want to know
There all along
Even in blinding darkness
But we can rest in knowing
They are there bringing
Life and rest
See the colors moving through the dawn
Hear the song of the day
There is a dance here
Ready for anyone to step in
Dance deep down
Whistling a morning hymn
Sparking the heart
As colors fly by
