This special period of lockdowns in 2020 gave me more time to read, meditate and to paint, deprived of the sweet distractions of ordinary life.
Only one hour for walking outside, I watched the gardens of the neighbours and noticed a Monarch butterfly resting in a white daisy. I snapped a photo of it on my ‘phone and painted the scene. it made me reflect on the great comfort and joy that we give and receive by friendship and love, both human and Divine. I called it “REST IN MY LOVE”
My major work for this period took about 3 months to paint, it is oil on canvas 136×237 cm.
“GOD IS HIDDEN AND REVEALED IN THE BEUTY OF NATURE”
The trees, birds and animals are all intertwined with the Hebrew Letters ECHAD (ONE), implying that in God we are all ONE, all people, animals and all of nature, intimately connected.
