Dark to Light
The Dark to Light series is about perseverance. It is a physical exploration of the transition from black to white and a spiritual exploration of finding light in the darkness. We have all been through hard times and challenges and have had the choice to avoid our problems, allowing them to fester, or confront whatever issues exist in order to find solutions. My own personal growth and emotional journey during a difficult time guided this series. No longer willing to tolerate festering, I examined my role in my circumstances, analyzing my behaviors and underlying motivations to understand where I could make changes. What I found was, as soon as I could articulate something I could then process it, let it go, and find a better path. The paintings were created out of order to reflect the ups and downs, wins and setbacks, of the human condition.
