This acrylic painting, titled, "The Journey," hangs in the Frisco City Hall as part of the Art in the Atrium Exhibition. This painting was inspired by a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Life is a journey, not a destination." This quote is something I've tried to live by on a daily basis. In the past, my quest to reach the "destination" of buying a house, getting a new car, getting a new job, etc. All of my quests were a primary motivation to feel accomplished and successful. As I grew older, it became very apparent to me that "life" is indeed more about the journey. The journey is about our day to day experiences. It is about how we get along in the world. How we treat people. How we serve God in our daily actions. When we get to the "milestones" in our lives--it is never permanent, so the journey continues even though a "destination" has been reached. It appears that the only destination may be the final grave, however, that is not even true. Life goes on after we transtion from this earth--Jesus showed us this "life" after death--so the journey quite frankly....never ends! With all of this being said---imagine a dolphin making its journey through the ocean waters--the effort in the daily journey always has to be strong--there is no rest for the weary! The strength and majesty of the dolphin is quite thrilling to see in person--you are lucky on your journey to see one leap from the ocean water. I imagined this dolphin as happy and spirited--making its way through the ocean on its never-ending journey!
And while you are there...check out what she has to offer!
