Universal Gift

Universal Gift

Kathleen tells us:  "Universal Gift" is inspired by the photos taken by the Hubble telescope. I think this may be as close as I can get to painting a picture of God. It could be argued that the universe is not actually God, but simply an example of God's creation. However, it is so vast and magnificent that I feel a sense of religious awe.

I have created an entire series of paintings inspired by the immense space and incredible drama of the universe. In addition to multiple layers of thin acrylic washes, many of these paintings include metallic gold paint, gold glitter and silver glitter that capture the endless reflections of light from stars, cosmic gases and interstellar particles.
