I Will Enlighten Them


Textural abstract painting in acrylic on canvas board with *organic inclusions.  Although the image was composed as a balance of textural areas and tones, the more I look at it, the more it reminds me of the way spiritual 'light' filters into one's consciousness, often in the darkest experiences, filling the soul with understanding and peace.
The title is a post-script and is a quotation from Doctrine & Covenants 76:10.
It has also been suggested that there is a suggestion of another kind of 'spirit' in the image!
Whatever it suggests to you, I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I do.
*N.B. Because the inclusions include wood shavings, this painting cannot be classified as archival.
