"Up and Out" - Swept up in the wind of the Spirit, like a butterfly emerges in unfurling glory.
The definition of up is: to ascend, to go up, climb, arise.
Out:  to go out, go forth to a place, go forward, proceed to, lead out, deliver, bring out of, emerge.
Arise, wake up, Christ will show you His light.  You reflect His light. 
The colour pink speaks of awakening, purple of our dear love for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and blue speaks of His breath of life and His pillar of cloud that surrounds us each and every day.
Scriptures that resonate for this painting are:
Mark 1:10
Jesus came up out of the water, he saw the heavens splitting apart and the Holy Spirit descending on Him like a dove.
He went straightway up out of the water.
I Thes 4:16-18
16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first
17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.
18 Therefore encourage each other with these words.
Jesus promises to bring us out of darkness to live in His marvellous light.
Upwards and Outwards in the Wind of His Spirit.  Lift up your eyes round about you.  Shine your light, let Jesus shine through you. (Isaiah 60:1-5). He is near.
Blessings and love
