LEFT: Ripple, Old paint on hardboard, R5500
Make a ripple in your own pond.
Your actions/words/thoughts DO make a difference.
Whether it starts a revolution or simply plants a seed, the change you want to see in the
world starts with you. Take responsibility for your life, and don’t underestimate how far your
ripples will go.
RIGHT: Fear vs Faith, Oil paint on hardboard, R2600
You choose, every day. Floating in the waters of life, fear and doubt will pull you under and
drown you in the suffering you can find in the world… yet faith and trust will lift you up,
pulling you into the light, into Gratitude, and into the hand of God.
You choose, every day.
LEFT: Light Walker, Oil paint on hardboard, R2600
This piece is to inspire Gratitude, for all the little miracles and blessings that we take for
granted or overlook, when our eyes are filled with negativity.
Gaze, rather, will eyes full of curiosity; filling your being with wonder at all the magic that
lives in the world.
RIGHT: Surrender, Oil paint on canvas, R7800
Sometimes surrender means giving up from trying to understand, and rather becoming
comfortable with not knowing.
Grappling with questions like “Why am I here?” “What is my purpose?” “Who is God?” I
found myself anxious and depressed at my ignorance. But when a little whisper told me to
let go, to surrender, my heart filled with peace… and I knew that the lesson was not in
immediately finding the answers, but in Trusting that all will be revealed in perfect timing.
