I’m starting to realize that I am on a Quest. Sometimes the images rise up out of the mists and sometimes they beckon from artists past, signs along the way to be recognized and shared.
I wasn’t sure why the crown of thorns wanted to be included in this painting. However, over the months it took to paint this image on my lunch hours and weekends, I was promoted three times at my place of work. And, the third promotion, which was like a bolt from the sky on my birthday, definitely came with a crown of thorns. Sometimes I feel the blood dripping into my eyes.
