This is a triptych – that is one painting covering three separate canvases. I painted this soon after I was diagnosed with Lymphoma. I wanted God’s help to be a fighter, an overcomer and beat this cancer but at the same time I knew I might soon be called to Heaven. I read God’s promise to His children that those who overcome hard things here on earth will get to eat of the Tree of Life in Heaven! So this is my impression of what one of those branches might look like!
This project took me a very long time (each canvas is 24″ x 36″) and that allowed me to process my diagnosis and at the same time be comforted by these delightful, hopeful thoughts of Heaven!
Being constantly amazed at the Creator’s color palette I tried to include EVERY color in the background.
