Within the Flame


“Within The Flame” (2015) mixed media on canvas, 16x20in. All paintings are made with the finest quality materials. Original works of art include a handwritten explanation of the painting, the story behind making it and the message contained within the art. “Within the Flame” is inspired by my connection to faith and the inspiration that comes from divine love. As I painted this work, the inner imagery that continued to appear was that of a chalice – a vessel holding a flame of unending light. And it was the light – this massive, mysterious love – that drew me in. Through this humbling exploration I was held within Divine, God, the ultimate mystery, fueling a sense of total and complete Trust. Regardless of the language to describe the work, this image is a meditation of the inexplicable wonderment that is spiritual bliss and the search for meaning and soul on the journey of life.
