Emerging from the Darkness

Emerging from the Darkness is the name of this Inspired Flow Art piece. The colors in it are:

  • Earthy shimmer representing taking new ground
  • Dark patina shimmer representing tender new beginnings
  • Alizarin crimson representing vibrant breakthrough
  • Pearl representing hope
  • Glorious gold shimmer representing beauty from the brokenness (like Kintsukuroi, which means “Repaired with Gold” where a broken vessel is repaired with gold, creating new beauty and strength from what had been broken)
  • Black representing darkness before the dawn

This piece is about overcoming depression and that which would break you or keep you down. Though sometimes moving from one season to the next can feel like a devastating loss, remember that new beginnings are always possible.

Don’t feel ashamed or intimidated to start over. It can be hard to let go of the past, the “good old days” that come to a sudden end. No longer mourn over what was. Don’t get discouraged by what is. Instead, look with hope over the new beginning that is just ahead of you. For when the sun sets upon one day it is simultaneously a sign of a new day beginning somewhere else. Keep your eyes on the horizon and head toward that new day with hope.

We hope the art and the colorful encouragement speak to you. Enjoy life and stay in the flow!
