We Must Endure the Storm to Enjoy the Norm by Mary Beth Balch

Clay and Acrylic Paint (9"x 6"x 5")
"I created this piece after enduring many moments of “Why Me?!” and “How much more does he (God) think I can take?). I hope that people, while viewing this, can relate to the chaos and and remember it in their lives and how life turned out ok for them.
I hand built this which is not one of my strong points but enjoyed it because I felt the peace when everything came together.
I am inspired by my fellow artists at the Artisan center, The patience they have with their work has taught me to take my time.
I hope that We Must Endure the Storm to Enjoy the Norm will give people who are going though stressful times will see that it will pass and that they will have time to regroup and enjoy the normal life. "
