This painting which is titled "Under the Robe" was inspired by an established Christian icon motif that traditionally refers to Saint Mary's role as the intercessor. In my painting my wife Brenda has this pivotal role for our family. Brenda's late night anxieties go from worry to prayer in the mystical transition that has released many important transformations over the years.
The thought that there is a supernatural personality who is all powerful and kindly disposed towards our family is the active idea that has been the power plant tucked under the hood of our families very unconventional lifestyle. I credit Brenda's steady day in and day out prayers to keeping that engine tuned and purring along.
