Devotion by KatiaHonour Devotion by KatiaHonour
2012 Oil & Tempera on Canvas

Pondering whether we have a natural right to an omni-present Divine or if the path is through humility and longing.

"How long will you keep pounding on an open door. Begging for someone to open it?" (Rabia al-Adawiyyah)

Removing the veil of blindness to new possibilities!!!!  Such depth to this piece!!! Such a soft tone in this and very uplifting in thought.  Some how i do believe the result could be darker for others...  I guess it all depends on one's intentions and you clearly have uplifting intentions hence the softness and beauty depicted :)  Though i could say that raises questions toward internal struggles as most artists are known to produce material that reflects their inner desires and not their reality...  In other words, How can we seek what we already have;  Or how can we produce what we do not know?

Thanks for taking the time to feel into this.... while our desires and devotions may not reflect physical reality, I believe they effect how we perceive and experience our own reality.
