What better ideas to pair than “Hindsight” and the New Year?
This painting jolted from me earlier in December. I’ve been focused to finish it before the year’s end to coincide with this new beginning called 2019. Yes, it’s only a new year but think of it, you have the gift of one. A family death last year still has me frozen from the reality of how quickly someone you love is there and how unfairly they can be taken away. One second and life is different. You have your own story. Death and loss are real, the black omen in the garden we ignore.
So “Hindsight” grew from that concept, the one that makes us so confused in our supposed, forward direction. We are in fact, actually turned backwards to the clarity. Our future turns out quite bright in hindsight, however, the road to get there is hardly ever so sunny or clear, as most of us know. The point, I think, is simply to keep proper perspective and keep moving forward with faith because in the end, that’s all that has our back.
As you reflect on your past year, I hope you’ve grown to know new perspectives and thus, grow new gardens and opportunities as a result.
Happy 2019 and much joy to you all!
