Rising Up, Atlantic Sunrise, Seagull,
20 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas
This is another one from a couple of weeks ago when I went to the beach early and took a ton of pictures. I have rearranged the elements somewhat to emphasize the drama.
There is a lot of symbolism in this painting. Some things that were going through my mind include:
1.The rocks represent our trials and struggles.
2.The sunrise is for the hope we find in a new day.
3.The laughing gull is symbolic for trusting God to turn it all around. He will bring good out of the hardships we face if we trust Him.
