My Thinking Place
Melinda painted this shortly after she started regaining her artistic talent back after the traumatic brain injury took it away. It is a landscape of a pretend place symbolizing a quiet place in her mind where she could sit and hope when things seemed hopeless. The entire painting shows the woman sitting on a large rock. To Melinda the rock symbolizes the Rock of Jesus where she is fully stands on. Well in this case, sitting on. The lighthouse symbolizes hope and the water symbolizes to her the Living water of God.
