Check out IGTV for a story of how this painting came to be, but it's Psalm 103--God restored my life from the pit. When I was in the pit, I felt hopeless and tried to claw my way to the light. A relationship with God restored me to who I really was & the light shone from my heart. When I was painting this, I had my canvas propped against a tree outside and was writing the verse "he called me out of darkness and into his wonderful light.... once I had no identity, and now I am his chosen people..." But dirt kept getting on my canvas! As I tried to keep it clean, it hit me how dirty and broken I once felt. So I finished the painting with dirt. If you feel like you're dirty and broken, through faith you can be restored, beautiful and clean.
