Integrity will protect you

Finishing up a couple 30x30 paintings today! It's been an interesting process....layers upon layers upon layers of acrylic not knowing what the final outcome will be. It's a process that I'm learning from Flora Bowley through an e-course....Brave Intuitive You.

The painting below, "Inspiration Within Gives Strength", makes me think of all that is going on creatively inside each of us, giving us wings of bravery. She may be going through struggles on the outside but will decide to choose fearlessness and not let anything hold her down. Her special creativity has been given to her by the Creator Himself and she will let that give her strength.
Below is the same painting before adding the last few layers. I have no idea how it got from there to where it ended. It just evolved itself .
This next painting, "Carry Beauty Through it All", also deals with bravery and struggles. The Bible verse from Psalms 25:21...."May integrity and uprightness protect me because my hope is in you" repeatedly ran through my mind as this painting was emerging. The beautiful bird, carrying burdens, soars with her head held high and wings flying strong through troubles maintaining integrity trusting a promise.
Below, the same painting before it decided to 'fly'.

I have a very good friend who is going through extraordinary struggles right now. These paintings are dedicated to her. May you trust, remain faithful, courageous, and strong.
