Hope Brightens

“Hope, like the gleaming taper’s light,

Adorns and cheers our way,

And still, as darker grows the night,

Emits a brighter ray.”

~Oliver Goldsmith

I memorized this amazing quote many years ago. I find Mr. Goldsmith’s wise poem here speaks to me of hope, and faith, and how the darker it gets, the stronger we can hold on as we are illuminated by our hope. When I discovered this artist and found this outstanding painting I immediately thought of this quote, and wanted to share them together with you.

        Interwoven with the intimacy of a bride and groom or the grace of two ballroom dancers moving as one.
