Struggling Surrender


As I painted this painting, the words that kept coming to me were:  

     I will not go quietly, I will not go gently into that good night.*

This painting represents the ongoing struggle of surrender, the ever present yielding of self.  I am not always good at surrender and it is a constant battle of wills.  

*Inspired by the words of Dylan Thomas in his poem Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night
