The Space Between: New Painting

I was playing in the studio on some small canvases, painting and printing with different colors and textures. The two human-like forms on this one emerged completely by accident. What is even more surprising is that the cross formation between these did as well. 

God leaves us spaces in which to create, and it is by this grace that I carve out the time in my day to paint and create. He manifests when we least expect, reminding us that there is something more than us. This is such a comforting sentiment as I often feel like the space between my husband and I grows vast as we both manage busy careers and life with three children. But it is in that space where there is a bond to which we can always return. 

The Space Between lyrics
Songwriters: Matthews, David J; Ballard, Glen;

You cannot quit me so quickly
Is no hope in you for me
No corner you could squeeze me
But I got all the time for you, love

The space between the tears we cry
Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The space between the wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain

But will I hold you again?

These fickle, fuddled words confuse me
Like, will it rain today?
Waste the hours with talking, talking
These twisted games we're playing

We're strange allies with warring hearts
What a wild-eyed beast you'll be
The space between the wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain

But will I hold you again?
Will I hold?

But the space between where you're smilin' high
Is where you'll find me if I get to go
The space between the bullets in our firefight
Is where I'll be hiding, waiting for you

The rain that falls splash in your heart
Ran like sadness down the window into your room
The space between our wicked lies
Is where we hope to keep safe from pain

Take my hand 'cause we're walking out of here
Oh, right out of here, love is all we need, dear

The space between what's wrong and right
Is where you'll find me hiding, waiting for you
The space between your heart and mine
Is the space we'll fill with time
