Rise Up | Lucy Dickens Fine Art

Rise Up

I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again

Song lyrics by Andra Day

Desiring to bring light and hope during our “stay at home” orders, I chose to capture these vibrant prickly pear blooms rising into the sky. Nature reminds us of the promise that spring will always come again, the darkness passes away. Beauty, love, hope, and light are what we all need right now and always. I choose to step into the beauty. While painting prayerfully, the song Rise Up by Andra Day came on. This painting seemed to call for this title as we all Rise Up together during these difficult times. Long ago, I felt called “to be a bringer of light and beauty”, to strive to make an impact in the lives of others through my paintings and words. This is what I choose to do. I will create, I will write, I commit to bringing hope and encouragement to others.
