Darkest Before Dawn

Darkest Before Dawn is my new painting.  Each year around the International Day of Peace I like to paint a dove of peace.  I’m a little behind the curve as the date was on September 21st but better late than never.  I decided to paint a dove flying at night as lately it seems that there is a continuous stream of bad news in regards to world and national events.  It is my feeling that the negativity that we are seeing and that many are experiencing will pass sooner rather than later and that actually many positive things are happening under the radar of the sensational news.

With the new season I seem to be settling down and better able to focus on painting which feels good.  May this new season bring with it more hope and peace to everyone.

  1. Stunning painting! Love the colors and texture and also love that you bring out the concept of “many positive things are happening under the radar of the sensational news.”

  2. hey, i’m from germany and i am filming a movie with 2 other friends for school. we are in our last year and want to give it our best in this film project. one of our major symbols in the movie will be a dove and i love this picture and the one you drew in this year because our film wraps around climate change (it will be a dystopian movie!!!).
    I want to ask you for permession to use the two paintings as posters in the background of our movie.
    Please write me back if you give us permession to use your 2 painings or not.
    Thank you very much!
