A nocturnal still life painting done specifically for the Wet Paint competition for the Oil Painters of America.

There is an antique Holy Bible with an icon painting of the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus that was blessed by a Russian Monastery Monk at St. Francis in Kennebunkport, Maine, where I one of 10 chosen to study “iconographic painting” with them. The wine representing the blood of Christ he gave for us and the hand-made journal representing life. The “Light” is symbolic for our faith. This has been a hard year (2020) with much sickness and quarantines, so I felt this still life was speaking to me and reminding me of John 1:5.
