Caleb's Painting

This is a painting I did for my brother. I started out kind of just playing with the paint and as it developed it turned into a painting about Heaven. It’s about the glimpses of beauty that we see and feel and experience here and there amidst the darkness and pain and suffering. It’s about how those moments of overwhelming beauty are foretastes of Heaven and, as such, are like windows into Heaven. The lines lacing in and out of the windows represent the interconnectedness between earth as we now experience it and Heaven as we now catch glimpses it.
