Shattered 20″X 20″ Mixed Media on Cradled Board

The inspiration for “Shattered” came after my husband George’s sudden death. I saw my life as fragmented pieces of glass and in my devastation clung to my Christian faith. About one year later I came across  a photo that we had taken of a shattered car windshield and I knew that through this image there was a message of hope, for myself and for a world that is suffering and broken. Like diamonds, we are often cut painstakingly with many facets that we might shine with brilliance. Though the process is often excruciating, especially when our lives seem shattered, God is faithful to comfort us, and create in us the rarest of diamonds reflecting His glory.
