We all need "Courage"

11x14" Acrylic Painting Titled: "Courage"
After a bit of a break from painting due to moving and starting a new beginning in my life, I have decided to get back in with a series. This is the first painting in its series that will have a window showing only a small fraction of whats behind it. In this case, an old barn wall.

We all need courage to break down those old barriers to take us to our new beginnings.

For me in this painting, the red paint stands for courage. The old twigs and roots growing through represents stress with age. The wheel represents a part of time when we needed it. The broken window represents a fraction of what is outside of our barriers. Hopefully we can all use courage to break down our barriers and explore life to the fullest and let the old things go. Some of us may already have, but for sure I have not.

Thank you for looking, and check out the time lapse video of this painting being created by clicking on the link below. -Bruce Collins

Intriguing and interesting. Great color. Wonderful, thoughtful message.

I also think the colours are wonderful. The message is very strong and emotive. I am so pleased for you that you are painting again and working through things with your paint brush. This is going to be a very interesting series and I am looking forward to it.
