This painting illustrates the hope for change from a bleak today into a bright and beautiful tomorrow.

So many people, especially in this tough economy are experiencing great hardship. And even if there is no financial stress there are health, occupational, marital and relational problems, terrible when it is with your own children.

Some of my favorites quotations that outline the concept of my piece are:

“In every cloud there is a silver lining”
- John Milton

“Never give up, never give up, never give up.”
- Winston Churchill

“I have successfully demonstrated 1000 ways not to make a lightbulb.”
- Thomas Edison

Here is a wonderful song that has inspired me over and over and I will share some of the lyrics, “There’s a proverb I have heard, wisdom through and through, not in scripture word for word, still it’s wholly true, This too shall pass”.

For inspiration and reference I used the work of photographer, Peter Dore Winter Skeletons
