Shadows of Peace
Hand Embellished Giclee Canvas
When I started this piece, I was not sure what message I wanted to send. While painting, I was reminded of the prayer of Saint Francis. I want the feelings one may get when they look at this, to resemble how we should all try and live our lives. My wish is for all to become shadows of peace.

Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
