Several years ago, during a difficult time for our family as my wife was very ill, we spent long periods in the hospital. I found myself creating concepts for future paintings on my tablet by her bedside. It took a few years before I actually started painting them on canvas. These pieces have special significance in my life, beliefs, and values. They are inspired.
Nascency, or “Being Born” is one of the paintings that was profoundly influenced during our hospitalizations. As hope was in the forefront of my thoughts, my worries to restore what was being taken away. This painting represents the act of being born. We can’t escape passing from this life, but as new life comes into the world, it brings hope for humanity.
