About the Art: Where the Healing Begins has reigned at the top of Steve Hanks’ collected and most requested imagery for release as a Greenwich Workshop Anniversary Canvas Edition.
This truly beautiful painting captures the essence of the concept of starting anew. Sitting on a porch overlooking the Pacific, a new day arises around an obviously introspective woman. Oceans, in Hank’s visual storytelling, are vast expanses and in comparison we are very small. When one of his paintings occurs near the sea, the subjects are often contemplating a significant passage in their lives. She sits amid an array of plants and flowers still in their plastic containers ready to be planted in fertile soil. Hanks’ message is there are times when you have to just start replanting, create a new beginning and grow from there.
The most compelling part of the painting is the woman herself. Her head is down, reflecting on her life and trying to understand it. Even though it is a great big, beautiful world, she still has to find herself before she can find her place in it. She carries an introspective solitude that prompts the viewer to think about his or her own life path. Women occupy a special niche in Hanks’ sensitivity. They express more storytelling ability and he captures a certain magic in them others miss.
All art is an escape to somewhere you want to be or a feeling you want to have. Where the Healing Begins is one of those special paintings that deliver something unique to each viewer, depending on their respective backgrounds and perspectives. This exquisite Fine Art Canvas, at 16" x 28," is being released in an edition that will not exceed 55 pieces. Just as the original paper print release of Where the Healing Begins is nearly impossible to find, this edition soon will be as well. Set the tone for your New Year by adorning your home with this beautiful and inspiring work of art from Steve Hanks.
