The work depicts withered grass and wild flowers. What was once vibrant and alive is now withered and bowed against the fading evening light.
There are moments in our lives where despair and doubt seem to be very real to us, but God’s presence with us gives us the Hope and the Promise that He is near, that He is our help in time of need. God knows the storms in any situations we’ve had. While our doubt of His grace and capability to provide for us often causes us to sink into the water, He never fails to always shower us with His mercy. He sent Jesus to give us hands of hope while we are in the mist. He will help us to complete our life journey.
This artwork describes the new Jerusalem mentioned in the book of Revelation. The river was flowing from the throne of God and on each side of the river stood the tree of life yielding twelve different fruits every month. The city walls were decorated with twelve precious stones and with twelve gates remembering the sons of Jacob.
I created this artwork to depict God’s promise to Abraham that he would have children as many as the stars. Abraham had hope and believed God even though he was nearly 100 years old and was still childless. I drew a baby formed by stars in the sky because God kept His promise and Abraham eventually became a father of many nations. Hence, I learnt that as long as we have faith and believe in God’s promise to give us a hope and a future, it will surely happen – just like the case with Abraham.
