Hope must prevail.

I paint for enjoyment…. for personal pleasure and love of color and light.

I also paint to find my peace. I paint to remain calm. I paint to find my way through my racing thoughts and to articulate the emotions that flow through me like an undisciplined mountain stream.

And I paint to pray.

I pray that good will always defeat evil, and that hope must prevail.
