"All three panels contain broken edges as if to symbolize the timeless spiritual issues all humans face. McCray's abstract painting entreats the viewer to experience a moment of contemplation and a sense of awe while observing the subtle yet rich tonal gradations of the colors. Peering deep within the layers of paint, the soul is nourished, and the spirit is fed on the passionate spontaneity of McCray's ‘Passion to Pentecost.’"

Rev. Dr. Tobin E. Wilson


"In ‘Passion to Pentecost’ Linda McCray paints three central chapters in the Christian Year: the Passion, the Resurrection and Pentecost. To form visible signs of invisible grace she uses abstraction to speak directly to the heart. The painting is layered with symbolismthe five wounds of Christ with red drips of blood, the resurrection with gold drips upward and Pentecost with white brushstrokes evoking a dove and the colour red flaming from above. The triptych format of three panels is a symbol of the Trinity often seen in early altarpieces.”
