Meaning of Illustration
A train station where winter people are busy coming and going. A child is crouched down in a crowded train station, almost crushed by the people. I layered myself with the stress of studying for exams, feeling crushed by the pressure and loneliness, hating myself for comparing myself with others, and unable to move forward. But it is at times like that that God is there by my side, reaching out to the lonely and sending His angels. The Lord Himself says, "I will never leave you. I will never leave you nor forsake you." When I hated myself and felt like my heart was breaking, I was saved by God's love, His promise that I would always be on your side and never leave you. I painted this picture with these thoughts in mind.
Light and hope shine brightest in the darkness. To represent God's love and healing, I chose yellow that represents the light of hope and dark blue to show sadness and loneliness for contrast.
