New Painting! let it pour

"Recognize the blessings that are raining down on you, and enjoy them with thanks."
(D&C 105:12)

I started this painting months and months ago and finally finished it yesterday. 
The idea came from a journal entry excerpt I had written just after my divorce was finalized: 

"I think sometimes it's better to simply forget your trials and focus on how great your life really and truly is." 
(December 28, 2008)

Original painting and prints available for sale in the shop!

Amen sister.
PS: I love the texture in your pieces- the swirls in the gray remind me of van Gogh.
