Through the use of different textures and elements in this painting, I depict how the difficult and hard things we experience in our lives, in some strange way, all work together to create beauty. If we allow those things to shape us, look for the good amongst the hard, or use those difficult experiences to help and encourage others, it can turn into a beautiful thing.
The lyrics of Gungor's song "Beautiful Things" are embedded into this work. (see partial lyrics below)All around, Hope is springing up from this old groundOut of chaos, life is being found, in YouYou make beautiful things, You make beautiful things out of us.Oh, You make beautiful things, You make beautiful things out of dust.
