Seeds of hope- flattening mountains, filling valleys

Spring. A time for growing, new life, new beginnings, beauty and wonder.

But sometimes things are broken, dreams are shattered, life is not a smooth ride.

“The valleys will be filled and the mountains and hills made level. The curves will be straightened, and the rough places made smooth” Isaiah 40 v4.

There is Hope.

A series of 8 drawings starting with a cracked pavement slab progressing through to a spring flower. Beauty can come out of brokenness.

The drawings have been overlayed on to 8 ink paintings of a field in bloom, full of life, yet the drops of ink echo tears that have fallen.
