This piece is a painting of a burned up tree in Griffith Park and is dedicated to the Divine Mother, Mother Nature, the spirit of life which infinitely perseveres moment by moment. Divine Mother, forever rooted and grounded in truth, beauty, and eternity stands tall and strong in faith and devotion to life. Her children, all beings, are a reflection of her made in her image and we may look to her for strength and inspiration. As I move through the changes that inevitably happen in my life I trust Divine Mother to guide, protect, and embrace me with love. Graciously I learn from her to be courageous as I walk through the fires and I stand in unwavering faith today. I know without doubt that I will make it through, for the only way through is through.
