The Golden Glow

I stared at the blank canvas before me, feeling lost and uncertain. I had been thinking about this painting for weeks but couldn’t find the right starting point. I had a poem in mind but didn’t know how to translate it to the canvas.
I decided to start by painting the background a deep brown that reflected the darkness and uncertainty I was feeling. Then, I began to add thick, bold strokes of light, hope, and possibility in yellow.

As I worked, I thought about the poem whose words mirrored my journey of self-discovery. Those words gave me the courage to explore my darkness and light. I let the paint drip and splatter, creating a sense of movement and energy as chaotic and unpredictable as life.
When I was finished, I stepped back and looked at the painting, pleased with what I saw. The yellow and brown colors swirled together, creating a sense of mystery and intrigue. The poem seemed alive on the canvas, its words dancing and swirling with the paint.

This painting is called “The Golden Glow.” It is a visual representation of my journey of self-discovery. It reminds us that even when lost, we are never truly alone. I hope this painting speaks to you on a personal level. I want you to feel the same hope and possibility I felt when I created it.

The colors of honey yellow, aged orange, cream white, Quinacridone/nickel azo gold, and light pink create warmth, depth, and complexity, creating a sense of happiness and optimism.
