Shafts of Light
By Rebecca Dvorin Strong, Painter

Editor note: Rebecca Strong is a painter I met on the last Arts Tour, and she just floored me with her painting "Shafts of Light." Even though the painting sold during the tour, she was kind enough to give us permission to feature it here in digital format.

This image is being featured here with permissions from Rebecca Dvorin Strong. Shafts of Light is oil on panel, 7.5 x 8 inches, created in 2001. Rebecca says of the piece, "The first few days after September 11th, it was difficult for me to return to the studio to work. I kept thinking that the act of making paintings seemed pointless in the face of such a vast human tragedy. This is the first painting I made--somehow, the light emerging from the darkness in the sky above the verdant grasses speaks to me about my wish that we will some day be able to overcome the darker side of mankind."
