"Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer."
Romans 12:12 ESV
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,"
" Who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
1 Peter 3:1 & 21 ESV
Then recently, I was inspired to create a companion piece for it. This one has an older woman, also in a flood, sitting with her cat on the porch, playing guitar & singing. I call it, "Relentless Hope".
This is about persevering, & singing thru the storms.
"To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."
Colossians 1:27 ESV
Caroline Harnish - Guest Blogger
Caroline East Harnish was born in Philadelphia, PA. Her father was a teacher, & her mother was an artist, so, there were always art supplies in the home, & lessons from mom.
Caroline went to Europe & stayed there for 22 years, eventually becoming a street artist. Her art was influenced by the German Romantic artists, such as Friedrich, & the classic Italian scenes. She travelled thru Germany, Austria, Switzerland, & Italy.
When Caroline returned to the U.S. with her children, she supported them by painting wall murals. In Sarasota, FL, she became known for painting 19 Italian restaurants, & was featured in the Sarasota Herald Tribune, Sarasota magazine, & local tv.
Now she lives in South Carolina, where she creates murals & " prophetic art" at various conferences.
C.S. Lewis said " We demand windows". I understand this to be a natural longing for truth, inspiration, beauty, & understanding the mysteries of life. In creativity, she attempts to discover the key element that makes art matter.
