Decade of Desire
oil on canvas
32" x 32"

This painting was inspired by the feeling of loss and hope. Both emotions colliding together as the figure is freshly out of the water, and ready to take the next step. The boat that she thought she would be on left the harbor. This is our expectations of the way we thought our life would be; Appearance vs.reality. Another boat is on the way, it just does not look like what she had in mind. It is God, Higher Power, the Divine guiding us towards our purpose.
