Inspired by Lament by The Dirt and the Flood
I am captivated by the concept of lamenting and the role it plays in our faith walk. Originally, I wanted to do this piece in grays, browns, muted colors to represent the lamenting. But , as I began to work, the rich colors that I love would not leave. Then I realize that in my moments of lament, there was still belief, there was still faith. A paradox, I know, but most of my journey with God has been full of those seemingly contradictions. I believe it is an added burden to interpret our lamentations as a lack of faith. The color is there as a reminder that the tears of lament can still be full of faith.
