The "Glory" of the human soul. All civilizations, as far back as archeologists have unearthed, display a belief of something after this life. Burial graves containing food, hunting weapons, finely woven cloth, boats, even the bones of servants to help the departed on his journey after death. The Egyptians went to great extent to insure safe passage from this world to the next. My personal belief is that we all have a soul that is released from earthly bondage upon death. This is my earthly interpretation of the colors we will see. I believe my human eyes can perceive only earthly colors. But Heaven. Heaven is where we'll see colors never before seen! With our soul's eyes, new colors will amaze us. As an artist, this will be fantastic.
This painting depicts a spiritual story. However, it is a story that can only be told with the restrictions of earth bound tools, eyes and imagination. None the less, it is a work to be pondered. The more I look, the more I see.

Art and creativity has always been part of who I am, but I only really started to focus on painting full time at the age of 50, following a long and successful career in advertising. As an artist, I love working in many different styles and exploring a wide range of subject matters. The beauty of online galleries lies in their eclectic art collections, and without the pressure of brick and mortar galleries dictating what I paint, I am free to paint whatever inspires me. Painting for me is an experience of falling headlong into inspiration. An image I come across will stick in my head and refuse to leave until it finds its way onto the canvas. My work is visually diverse, and there are very few painting styles that don’t inspire me in someway or another. My paintings range from abstract and cubist, to impressionistic and realistic. Most recently, I’ve been inspired by quirky and retro TV shows to tell a story through my paintings. The lighting and cinematography of these shows inspire me to paint dramatic moments in time, and I create unique, intriguing characters that are open to interpretation.
