34×46 Oil on canvas, 1997

For some of us, the storms seem to be a part of our life. But always remember that you have a dream to realize. If you give up, your dream will automatically die. A lot of today’s most successful and happiest people went through some terrible storms like you are in. But the good news is that, if there is a time for the storms, there must be also a time for the calm. The mother in this painting would give up if not for her child, so shouldn’t you because of your dream. The storm you are in will not last forever, yes it will come to pass. Therefore, HANG ON AND NEVER GIVE UP. No, don’t let your dream die, you get to fight. Do not just fight, but fight to win, fight with persistence and determination.
