Entrance To The Garden Of Hope - Acrylic on canvas painting by Michelle Chermaine

Acrylic on canvas 8" x 10" 2010

The young green grass is adorned with bright red blossoms where the blood red cloak of life's trials and pain meets the earth. Red is the color of passion, courage and blood which is our life force. From sacrifice springs new life and opportunities waiting along a newly created path. The figure courageously moves on steadily without turning back, ever forward into the entrance of a bright new place with endless possibilities accompanied by the seven white doves of the garden of hope.
