Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas
Available for purchase via Etsy
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
