This is a time when we need hope and so my painting depicts the darkness that has enveloped us but rising up out of it to the dawning of a new day. In our isolation we have learnt resilience, patience, compassion, strength and hope. So, from these lessons we will arise to another day, different people with new ways of doing things and an optimistic hope for the future. Like the mythical Phoenix bird that arose out of the ashes will we rise again.
