There's always calm before and after a storm
Turbulence was inspired by a photograph. The painting depicts the approaching of dark grey clouds suggesting the arrival of a violent storm. The approaching clouds warn of the upcoming danger. Then you see the orange and yellow hues of sunlight peeking through the dark clouds. This arrival of light tells of the departure of the storm which can be related to our own lives.
The most comforting thing about life is that nothing ever stays the same. Things are constantly changing and evolving. We can go through periods that feel like a never ending nightmare, but it does come to an end. There is always calm before and after a storm. The light comes back once the storm is over, and the experiences make us stronger and wiser. If we can get through the most turbulent times imaginable, we can get through anything. We’re never given more than we can handle, and we have the strength and courage to get through it.
