Peace Rose, Strength in Softness, A Story of Survival 

Roses speak to us from a dimension of truth, beauty, and abundance that transcends all languages. They can bring in the divine like ground under-foot to support us as life unfolds in unpredictable, and sometimes uncomfortable ways. Faith in the invisible, trust in the very center of our being, it's what we need for our days here on earth. My painting "Transition Rose" was with me through a lot of change over a period of several years as I worked on it. It carries the energy of my journey as I moved through all sorts of obstacles. It embodies a kind of release and receptivity to the new, hence the title: Transition Rose. This painting is based on the Peace Rose.

If a painting and its creation can be a prayer, and I believe it can, this one supports us in the changes we're going through both individually and collectively as of January 2019. I'm writing this article in June of 2020, (with edits here and there) when there is growing uncertainty and a rocking of the foundation of our social structures. Global health issues and crisis, supply issues and political shifts loom on the horizon triggering a deteriorating sense of equilibrium for many. We're in need of constant restoration and many of us are adjusting in creative ways. The wisdom of nature, and in particular, roses, can contribute to our sense of wellbeing. When tuning into the patterns, colors and vibrations of nature, we feel safe. Here we regain our balance and find peace. We can hear our inner voice and make choices that are not based in fear.
