A mountain.... in the midst of times great void, of what is right, and righteousness, stands in the deep...dark.... shadow of the fear that rules from deep within the soul...
From this appeared a bird... A messenger in flight, A holy emblem as was once before, surrounded by the gentle Spirit, sent to bring a blessing, and anoint a blessed maiden,
so sweet and precious in His eyes
to bring a full creation that
will rest upon her head,
and thus her spirit's
soft creative timber,
with salvation be restored.....

Faith by William Oil on canvas 2015 18" x 23.75" x .75"
My very first painting done in the USA.
Before leaving South Africa, a dove moved into my house and stayed there for three months, following me wherever I went. I named him William. I would like to believe he was more than just a dove..
