Let Your Light Shine

I was asked by a friend who is also a school teacher if i I had any art that I could donate to her school’s silent auction. I first thought of my recent pastel pieces (below:  see Protective Brother) but then i would have to mat and frame them which would be costly. So i discussed with her the possibility of an acrylic on canvas that would her school. The school mascot a dolphin and the motto this year “Let your light shine”. I immediately pictured a dolphin in the moonlight and ended up adding a child sitting high on a rock with a raised lantern:  a feeling that she is looking for someone to return and raising the lantern to guide them. She gets a  glimpse of a dolphin leaping which must have taken her mind off of the worry the tall waves had built in her mind. I considered including a sailboat being tossed about but decided instead that the picture story is of shining your light, hope, and the gift of the beautiful dolphin.  


I’d love to hear what you have to say.
