God recently has called me to start painting again.  Painting calms me – brings peace.

This painting is of a Mexican woman who I meet roughly 6 years ago.  She is from an indigenous area where her life is hard.  She only has a few clothes, the weather conditions are harsh, homes made of adobe and dirt floors, the outcasts of society, and yet she finds Gods beauty in the smallest things.

She takes notice of a hibiscus plant.  And thanks God for it.  They use it to make a drink that is delicious.

I am reminded how life is not always easy. But God is always there. Sometimes are eyes do not want to see it because we are only focused on our circumstances.  Gods beauty is all around us.
