Raindrops on Roses



Title: Raindrops on Roses Year: 2020 Size: 97.5 x 73 cm Medium: Mixed Media on Canvas (Framed in White Box Frame) Meaning: “If you are feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path toward happiness; don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes, because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart…where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.” Everwood This painting embraces the fear and uncertainty we may experience in life, and is met with calming hues of blue and blossoming roses of red. The visual of this work encompasses “Raindrops on roses” - adapted from the Sound of Music (1959 Musical). These words are part of the song sung as a metaphor when things aren’t going as well in life, or when fear becomes overwhelming. Artist: Aaliyah Ebrahim
