Rising from Ashes is about the spiritual flight of crossing over from death into life. Whatever your tradition, the Zen ensō or open circle symbolizes the setting free of the spirit into life. The modern drip line of gold rises from highly textured black paint made from ashes.

Additional Photos

To capture feelings of the warmth and peace of the Divine Presence, I use a number of techniques including the old masters’ use of glazes to capture luminosity.


The meaning of these two paintings, raining down and rising up, make a perfect art pairing!
