I suddenly saw that all the time it was not I who had been seeking God,
but God who had been seeking me.
I had made myself the center of my own existence
and had my back turned to God.
~Bede Griffiths

The two little birds in this piece are symbolic of how we find the answers to which we are seeking.  At times we must look down, underneath rubble, get in uncomfortable positions in order to find that which we could not see before.  At other times, we only need to sit still and let the truth come to us.

This 36" x 24" original acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas is currently on display that the Gallery at Midtown in Dallas, TX.  It is available for purchase for $575.

Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, 
feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.

Faith at Dawn

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.

~ Rabindranath Tagore

Terrible devastation in the Dallas area where I live today.  A day of  numerous tornadoes yesterday has ruined many, many homes. We are blessed that people worked together, followed advisories, and only a dozen people in the whole metroplex were hurt, with no one dying.  I spent a few hours shut in my apartment bathroom with my dear old cat and am thankful for online friends who kept me company through some scary moments!  And, of course, it's always nice to know you're loved.

Hate shuts her soul when dove-eyed mercy pleads.
 ~ Charles Sprague

This piece is one in a series where I explored deconstructing identifiable attributes of particular birds and merging them together on a canvas, collage style, through paint.  I was excited to be invited to be a part of the first art exhibit at the American Airlines Center  here in Dallas through CityArtCal.  This piece is 24" x 24" acrylic on 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas and sells for $300 plus shipping.  Mention that you are a blog reader and I'll give you 20% off purchase price.   Email purchase interest to cori-lynn

This piece is my entry in the Take a Word: Eggs Challenge.
