I believe I’ll always be a learner of life. We all are even if we don’t consciously know it. Hopefully those lessons (some heartily sought and many unsolicited,) will make us better human beings. Hence, we’re always active in this non-stop school of life. Our actions are strongly connected and influenced in our beliefs and ethics even if we have to debate and wrestle with them daily. In my personal experience, my “way to heaven” has been a rocky road with many ups and down and turns and twists, but at the end of the day there’s little progress and that’s what I strive for.
My painting is a depiction of such. The colors used are contrasting to emphasize the earthly and heavenly, the easy and the difficult. The crooked ladder divides the plane between earthly and ethereal. This is my winded journey slowly going up because that’s my final destination. A home represents what’s dear to me and the flowers on the east, represent the life I’m struggling to obtain.
I will make it eventually when my time is up and God takes me to his everlasting rest.
