[Painting of the Week] Dawn


Dawn is the time that marks the beginning of the twilight before sunrise. It is recognized by the presence of weak sunlight, while the sun itself is still below the horizon.

Here is another of my favorites from the past few years, and one that is very close to my heart. I made this painting when I was newly pregnant for the first time, 7 years ago this month. I was so full of hope, excitement and joy, but also hesitant, fearful and really struggling with embracing the unknown.

I still see all of that in this piece.

Sending you rich blessings for this Monday!

I love this one Faith... Well I love all your paintings, but this one has so many layers and I do feel that vibe of the unknown in there... I relate to that feeling when I first became pregnant for the first time too. It's such an amazing journey isn't it... I love that your showing your past works. It helps me get to know you, and floors me with your creative spirit, always shining- you are beautiful Faith. Much love, LL

Yes, I see that. Maybe hearing your story helps but I look at this and feel refreshed but in a very quiet and gentle way. I agree with VisionWise - love seeing and learning about your past work. Please keep sharing. =)
