Joy Comes in the Morning features a sweet turquoise vase inspired by two of our beloved vintage McCoy vases! My interpretation contains design elements from each of them! What a treat to paint!
The bouquet is full and lush and features a variety of flowers and foliage but a fun new addition to this particular bouquet is the gladiolus stalk on the left! Painting those frilly petals was something new and fun and make this bouquet a stand-out! This painting also includes some blooms inspired by collarette dahlias, which are one of my favorite types of dahlia because of their uniqueness and their sweet little ring of tiny white petals around the flower's center!
The background is neutral but includes a variety of colors and tones, as well as bits of underpainting peeking through, making it interesting and varied.
The title is a reminder of the verse from Psalm 30:5 that says, "For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning." (New Living Translation)
I know what it is to walk through a very long season of illness and struggle and my hope is that this painting will always be an encouragement to the viewer, bringing hope and reminding of God's favor and His joy that will surely come.
