Crimson Sky

The meaning behind this picture

It was the year of 2010 at the occurrence of the Haiti earthquakes when I was inspired to paint this picture. 

I was deeply moved by the devastation of this massive natural disaster and it poured out into this painting.

My heart broke for the Haitian people, not only for their land but for their struggle through such horrendous poverty.

I pictured a Haitian crying out to God in the crimson sky of blood shed…crying out for hope in the coming night as the sun sank lowly in the sky.

My prayer at this time was that God would use this horrendous event for the ushering of His hope.  That the same shaking would occur in our country as well…in whatever form it would take.  For to me, I would rather be painfully alive than blissfully dying.

The Lord brings all of us our own forms of Crimson Skys…each time we lose a loved one, or a home, health or threat of our own lives…it is our greatest opportunity to look up through our desolation and call on the one that brings us life; Jesus Christ.

“Perhaps it is disasters themselves that can shake a society out of sleep of what they were and wake into the reality of what they now are.” Stephanie Schneider

Nothing but an imperious intellectual and moral necessity can drive into doubt a religious mind, for it is as though an earthquake shook the foundations of the soul, and the very being quivers and sways under the shock.” - Annie Besant

Whenever an earthquake or tsunami takes thousands of innocent lives, a shocked world talks of little else. I'll never forget the wrenching days I spent in Haiti last year for Save the Children just weeks after the earthquake. -Anne M. Mulcahy
