“This is Home” is the 5th Painting in my Looking for some Light Collection finished on 4-21-20
You might recognize this beach from the 2nd Narnia movie when the Pevensie children go back to Narnia. For this painting I wanted something along the lines of coming out of a dark cave into beauty and light. I’ve always loved how they enter Narnia cinematically, so it’s not surprising that this cave and beach were in my mind for this painting.
Naming it “This in Home” comes from a Switchfoot song they wrote for that movie. Jon said this about it and I feel like it’s the heart behind this one.
“I am always taken by [C. S.] Lewis' ability to write about the bittersweet beauty in this world; this home we aren’t really made for but is the place we work out our humanity in the midst of our longing for our true home."
Song "This is Home" by Switchfoot
I've got my memories Always inside of me
But I can't go back Back to how it was
I believe you now I've come too far
No I can't go back Back to how it was
Created for a place I've never known
This is home
Now I'm finally back to where I belong
Where I Belong
Yeah, this is home
I've been searching for a place of my own
Now I've found it
Maybe this is home
This is home
