As much as we would love to be happily skipping through life at all times, there will always be moments that get us down. We get stressed, overwhelmed, and sometimes just plain sad. But in the darkness, there is always a light of hope. These abstract paintings by Tennessee artist Wendy McWilliams illustrate in paint that feeling of glimpsing the light in our dark moments.
I’m not sure this was the artist’s purpose when she set out to paint these canvases, but it is what these pieces are speaking to my own, slightly stressed mind today.. There is always something happening, something or someone clamoring for our attention. Sometimes the noise is welcome, other times, not so much. But in the light and color of McWilliams’ work, today I’m reminded that the stress doesn’t last forever.
We always manage somehow to come through the chaos, to tackle the seemingly insurmountable tasks before us or to just plain grin and bear it until it’s all over. Whether it is through our own strength, help from another or above, we get through it. The color returns and so does the light.
