I Rise

I Rise

Life gets tough.

Sometimes frequently.

And sometimes it feels like you’ll never make it through.

But if we can keep going through the darkness and believe in ourselves, eventually we come to a place of strength and increased wisdom.

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

C.S. Lewis

This piece has grown out of my own challenging journey over the past few years. I can honestly say that art saved me.

I dedicate this to all of you who have known darkness, sadness and the sting of loneliness or failure.

Keep on going my friend.
