Story Behind the Art: Until Eternity is a Season

Until Eternity is a Season, 2019
Acrylic on Canvas, 18×24

My temperament enjoys what is fleeting and frivolous. However, I also long for things permanent and enduring. SeasNanci Stoeffler-Until Eternity is a Season 2019ons are sort of both, aren’t they? They appear for a few months and then disappear, melting into the next one. However, we also know they will come around again – ‘same time next year’. Their fleeting is laced with an imprint of forever.

And that’s something I sense in this painting. A recognition of the longing inside of me – stirred by the seasons – for all that is permanent, forever and eternal. I am thankful for the longing for it actually has been put there by God for a reason (Ecclesiastes 3:11), to help us remember this temporary, fading, fleeting world is not our true home. We were made for something more.

So with each forming and fading season, I seek to hear the Voice of the of the Spirit, which whispers of another world – a true home; a permanent one. (Psalm 104, Revelation 21-22).
