A Light In the Desert

"Light In The Desert" is 28" x 22" and was painted on Belgium Linen with hand ground oil paints. 

This painting took over a year to complete and during that time the theme has evolved from one of human connection to nature to a theme of transformation and hope. 

The branches behind the figure are wings. She is at once an element of her surroundings and a beacon of hope to the lost, in a desolate landscape that is harsh, yet full of life.
