So, what comes first , the inspiration for the painting itself or the words ? For me, that depends on the type of painting it is. For any of my landscapes or portraits, the inspiration almost always comes from a picture or vision that sparks my inner light.
But for any of my work , that I refer to as "Divinely Inspired, the inspiration almost always comes to me in the form of a message. Some other day I'll go go into more detail about how I began receiving these messages ................yes, I love to paint, but a poet, I am not : )
So it is without a doubt, that I know these messages are not from me. They gave me comfort in a time of great despair when I needed it . And now it feeds my soul to be able to paint them.
The one above has touched many people, including myself........it started from these beautiful words :
Let your pain drift upon the wings of an angel and mingle with the light of God.
They then made their way into this painting:
I truly hope these angel inspired words give anyone who is suffering in any way, as much comfort as they do me.
