This painting was inspired by a traditional Madonna and Child icon. The large gold semicircle is a symbol for Madonna, and the smaller one her Child. They are portrayed by the holiness of their inner light, rather than their unique facial features. They represent all people. I hope my contemporary icon inspires others to see Light in mother, child and everyone.

I express our rich history of medieval icons by using their traditional color scheme, juxtaposition of sacred figures and highly textured gold halos. I bring this icon up-to-date with contemporary abstract elements of light, texture and shape, which abound with symbolism.
Inner Light: Madonna and Child was in my exhibition at the Holter Museum of Art.
