Defiant Looking For Some Light Collection

Posted by Emilie Taylor on

Defiant is the second painting in my Looking For Some Light collection finished on 4-6-20.

Defiant is about letting your light shine. All too often the world tries to snuff it out of us. It’s not just people, it’s the trials we go through, pain, and sorrow. Life has a way of feeling so heavy and its easy to feel surrounded by the dark. Choosing to light your lantern even when you feel alone might just be how you inspire others. And choosing is a key word there, making the choice to be brave, trust, speak truth, and be the light.


The light shines in the darkness,

    and the darkness can never extinguish it

-John 1:5

This painting took some time to shape out the full scene but in the end I'm happy with what it conveys. Also this was one of the paintings I had two titles for and couldn't make the choice on my own. My fans voted and Defiant won. 

My song lyrics for this paintings name is from “Defiant” by Rend Collective


Defiant against the darkness

I will declare your goodness

In the highs, In the lows

In the winter of my soul

Defiant until the breakthrough

Trusting the mountain will move

In the highs, In the lows

You will never let me go
