This oil is titled "Joy Comes in the Morning" and carries a weighty, yet hopeful story. It was over the duration of creating this that Karen's family sought answers to unexplainable symptoms their daughter Rachel had started experiencing. Though the doctor and hospital visits were many, no explanation could be found. During their long hunt, this was Karen's prayer that sweet Rachel would soon find comfort and relief. Each lovingly painted in this warm Hawaiian scenic, represents a member of their family. Rachel's tree is nearest the sun and bathed in the warm embrace of healing light against a golden . It would be the last work Karen would complete prior to their family finally learning the answer to Rachel's symptoms: Rachel had brain cancer.
For just over 2 years Rachel battled cancer valiantly. A stoic old soul occupying a young body, she boldly weathered the effects of treatment with a fierceness and grace that defies comprehension for any human, much less a child. Throughout her incredible journey she taught others how to love without reservation, how patiently to endure trials most will never meet, and how to embrace and leverage the silver lining of every situation, even when it is hard to find. While in the arms of her parents, Rachel Elizabeth Whitworth took her last breath on earth on the early morning of February 11th, 2020 at the age of 13. At that moment she entered the comforting arms of her Savior. While Karen and her family grieve her loss greatly, they also find comfort in knowing she is now forever free of pain, and as her earthly love for Jesus would confirm, her ultimate joy is now complete.
While the painting represents a very deep and powerful personal saga for the artist, this tropical sunrise with it's and light, also represents something universal to all humanity; the awareness of darkness, the heaviness of night, the steadfast hope for things yet to come, and the existence of a powerful love that overcomes all, even death.
No matter what the future holds, love remains.
