What do you see?

I painted this picture a while back and just recently came across it again. I love it because every time I look at it, I see something new about it. What do you see?

My interpretation: I painted this to encourage anyone who's ever walked to or experienced the edge of something. In this painting, she walked to the edge, a dreamer, full of faith, wind blowing toward her, raging sea beneath and a storm above... she's confident and standing tall against all odds. Her hair blowing back represents God-given wisdom and her cape represents His security. Every stroke I used was geared toward an upward motion because there is nothing in this painting meant to be negative. God is the lifter of our head. He is the master at directing our steps. Just because we come to the end of something or can't see where the road turns - doesn't mean that He's not there. God is with us, always. Have faith to know that when you get to the edge, He'll take it from there.
