“Of Courage on Threatening Horizons”
This is a very personal piece.
Storms have long been used as potent metaphors for looming dangers, powerful forces beyond our control and the risk of exploring unknown frontiers. Recent years have supplied no shortage of threatening horizons in my life. Facing overwhelming challenges makes me feel small and insignificant. So I try to find the courage to don my armor and confront those struggles. Working through this piece, I found the metaphors at work were numerous. This painting represents is the purest visual distillation of those feelings for me.
