"Hope in the Night" is inspired by the feeling of a glimpse of hope that can brighten our hearts and minds on a difficult journey. I chose to paint this small sparrow in a quiet moment of contemplation looking up to the glow of the moonlight as a symbol of the hope God gives on our journey if we are willing to pause and look up to Him.
