Journey to the Lighthouse Collector Series: "Dark Night of the Soul" - Original Painting

$10,000.00

This product is sold out

This contemporary painting features a bright orange sailboat on rough waters during a stormy night. This piece tells a story of a woman's (Jocelyn) dark night and her journey at sea in search of a lighthouse. It represents humanity's trials, hopes, transcendence, and capabilities to overcome life's rough times.

As a spiritual seeker, Jocelyn has learned from her life's journeys to not only count all that is awesome and good in her life as blessings, but to continually look deeper into any long buried wounds hidden beneath the surface as well.

When everything falls apart and dark times arise, they pass like stormy clouds and become moments we get to work on. They show up to help us heal and grow.

Have faith, hope, and believe that you can overcome and transcend all that arrives on your life's path. When you do the real work and have overcome the storm that passes, you'll see that the sky has remained blue and you are destined to a bright good path! :) 

About the Artwork

    Jocelyn used pallet knives with Acrylic paints to create bold Impasto effects on this piece. 

    The "Journey to the Lighthouse Collector Series: "Dark Night of the Soul" artwork and this website is dedicated to the loving memory of one of Jocelyn's cherished friends and fellow Alchemist, Frank Gallagher. The Dark Night of the Soul poem has inspired Jocelyn to use it as the title of this artwork's series.

    My Dear Air Bud Frank, 

    This was your favorite artwork and you were always so supportive of my creative dreams! This is for you:

    Journey to the Lighthouse: Dark Night of the Soul
    Adapted from the "Dark Night of the Soul" poem by St John of the Cross

    On a dark night, 

    Without light or guide,
    I went forth without being observed,
    in secret, when none saw me
    You watched me sail into the rough Seas! The clouds opened and your light guided me Oh night that guided me.
    You caressed me in my dark night

    Kept wholly for yourself and I was never alone

    Your gentle hand reached for mine,
    And caused all my senses to be suspended.
    Your love burned in my heart.

    Oh, night that guided me,
    Oh, night more lovely than the dawn,
    Oh, night that joined Beloved with lover,
    Lover transformed in the Beloved!

    I remained, lost in oblivion;
    My face I reclined on the Beloved.
    All ceased and I abandoned myself,
    Leaving my cares forgotten among the lilies.

    More surely than the light of noonday
    To the place where he was awaiting me
    A place where my Soul is now at rest.

    With Love Always,

    Thank you to @jewcyz Jenny, a Soul Sister, for her wonderful support.,She fell in love with this painting (my first one ever!) titled "Journey to the Lighthouse" She purchased a large print. I created the original “Journey to the Lighthouse” artwork with a combination of brushes and palette knife with acrylic paints. The artwork portrays a sail boat's battle against the ocean wave's vigor and energy. It tells a story of a woman's dark night of the soul, and her journey at sea -- in search of a lighthouse. It represents human's trials, hope, and capability to endure and overcome life's rough times. The Lighthouse part of my business name honors the journey it has taken me to open my new Art Gallery and Studio in Carmel-by-the-Sea. This is my Dream and Destiny. It is also my vision to pave a thriving path for other artists as they seek out their life's dream, passion and calling. This vision will be my Personal Legend. My prayer is that we all move in the Presence of Love, Peace, Joy, Perseverance & Hope. May we all succeed in discovering each of our own Personal Legend and Destiny. Do not be afraid to Dream and yearn for everything you would like to see happen in your Life. To realize your own Personal Legend is your only calling, mission and obligation. And when you fulfill your Personal Legend, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. #MyFirstPaunting #Paintingjourney #Carmel #Carmelite #CarmelbyTheSea #artist #painting #artwork #lighthouse #lighthouseartdesign #ArtStudio #ArtGallery #gallery #sailboat #saul #boat #dream #artlovers #beach #beachart #nautical #maritime #monterey
