Pathways in Darkness



Artist Statement

Pathways in Darkness. This painting shows the light in dark journeys. If we look we can always find the light of Gods love when we feel lost and alone. I felt connected when I read about this contest. I prayed for guidance to paint something to show the invisible armor that carries us out of personal struggles into the love light the Holy Trinity. This painting fits with a few more that I have painted while dealing with sorrows in my personel life. I hope to share the beauty of life even in dark places.

How it fits into contest

Walking with the armor of God for the traveler in this painting is a woven shaw. After reading Ephesians 6:10-20 I prayed for something to paint as I painted this came out of my mind.
