About the Artwork

Driven by a need to deeply explore her emotions, the artist created this piece inspired by her friend's words: "to take or to give comfort in times of distress or sadness." This painting captures the essence of waves, a beach, and the calm night following a storm, symbolizing tranquility after turmoil.

Reflecting on a world filled with both beauty and incomprehensible hate, the artwork represents a tangible tear falling from one's cheek—a poignant response to the surrounding chaos. The artist aims to evoke a shift towards calmness and peace in the viewer, hoping this serene mindset becomes contagious and enduring.

This piece encourages living in the present and cherishing life as it is. Amidst the incredible paradise of our world, it reminds viewers to find happiness within themselves and their surroundings. By embracing the simple joys and serenity after life's storms, the artist calls for an appreciation of inner peace and the beauty around us.
