The Fight For Inner Peace is a larger artwork that took one week to complete. It fits in perfectly with the work I create on a daily basis. My work is centered around the calling of nature, our companionship with animals, and our deepest desires to connect with the world around us. My hope is to inspire others to take a moment and reflect on how we are all sewn together through this beautiful world full infinite forms of life. This artwork focuses on our inner balance of peace, truth, and righteousness. As all of my work, this piece is also done on live edge basswood to bring in one more element of life. I first drew in pencil on the wood to get a rough sketch of my idea down. I then let my hands and burner do the rest of the work in bringing this piece to life.
This is a piece which reflects upon the moments of inner peace, truth, and righteousness along the never ending spiritual battle that rages within. It is about recognizing that your spiritual journey is one that starts within yourself. The battle you fight within is where you will find your own truth and peace. I believe that connecting with nature and the life around us will help lead us to these times of feeling truth and light flow throughout our bodies. Nature has a balance of dark and light that perfectly reflects our battles with good and evil. Even though your life will have both darkness and light, good and evil, it does not mean there is anything wrong with you. When you are going through times of spiritual struggles, take a moment to reflect within. Connect with the nature around you to find your inner strength, peace, and truth.
