Surrender to a Greater Dream: Illustrated Inspiration from Oprah Winfrey and New Series with Ava DuVernay Based on Queen Sugar by Natalie Baszile

Made this illustration of one of my greatest inspirations for her birthday. Inspired by Oprah's words on surrendering dreams to God, (plus love this beautiful purple dress she wore on The Life You Want Tour!) "God can dream a bigger dream for me, for you, than you could ever dream for yourself. When you've worked as hard and done as much and strived and tried and given and pled and bargained and hoped…surrender. When you have done all that you can do, and there's nothing left for you to do, give it up." Give it up to that One that is greater than yourself…

Congrats to Oprah and Selma’s director Ava DuVernay who are bringing a dream to life by teaming up for an original drama series on OWN based on Natalie Baszile’s debut novel, “Queen Sugar.” Looking forward to reading the book and watching the series- we so need more purpose-full stories to be told and this collaboration is an amazing one!


Oprah says about the project, “I loved this book and immediately saw it as a series for OWN. The story’s themes of reinventing your life, parenting alone, family connections and conflicts, and building new relationships are what I believe will connect our viewers to this show.”
