"On a Shore After a Storm"

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where there seemed to be absolutely no way out and you had to choose between options which could make things better as well as make them even worse than they were? I hope you haven't, but that's exactly what happened to me last week and it was really, really serious. Today I can say with a huge relief that everything turned out well in the end and I made the right decision.

Because it was stretched in time, I decided to make this painting to find some comfort and clear my mind for a better decision-making. It is called On a Shore After a Storm and it expresses my longing for a happy ending which at first seemed to be as distant to my troubled mind as a lighthouse to a lost ship. It gave me strenght and I think I will always keep this painting to remind me that there is always hope. Just in case :)
