Candle 1

I am thinking of using this image, a snapshot of a painting I did a while ago, a few times in a row, seeing what I feel like saying about it on different days. We’ll see how that goes, if that goes.

    Wow Patrick! That is very expressive! The colors, texture and general feeling this emotes is clear, but yet, still surreal. I didn’t know you’re an artist, too! You are so talented dear! <3

    Good idea; the image lends itself to so many interpretations and applications. Go for it.

    The image looks like a bear mesmerised by a candle flame… Appropriate background music is Deep Purple’s ‘Burn’

  4. Thus candles and lampadas are lit at all Church services, all with a wide variety of spiritual and symbolic meanings; for it is God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, [and] Who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (1 Cor. 4:6). So too, lit candles in the church are also an expression of the worshippers’ adoration and love for God, their sacrifices to Him, and at the same time of their joy and of the spiritual triumph of the Church. The candles, by their burning, remind one of the Unwaning Light which in the Kingdom of Heaven makes glad the souls of the righteous who have pleased God.
