Contention- Conflict Series #1

This piece kicks off my Conflict Series. (number of pieces in series still to be determined) All of us have felt the conflict within our own minds and hearts. Those things which taunt us in the wee hours of the night. I've decided to take what I love in painting animals and try to represent this over the next few pieces. My boys asked me today as I finished this particular piece, "Which one is the bad one"? I told them it was up to the viewer. But perhaps neither of these is "bad". The conflict i've faced within myself has always turned me to deeper faith and trust in God. 

Paul says in the opening part of 2 Corinthians he was despairing of life itself while doing ministry in Asia, but ultimately it was so he would rely on God who raises the dead rather than the strength of men. God is a great comfort in conflict. God is a gracious father. Conflict doesn't scare me. God has always used it to instruct me. 

This is a big piece at 3'x4'. It needs the room to itself. You won't be disappointed having this piece in your house. 

Each of my conflict series pieces is signed with the stamp of a small Octopus.
